Mwiba Lodge overlooks a series of springs and pools in a rocky gorge in the 50,000 hectare Mwiba Reserve just off the southern tip of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania. From its vantage point the lodge has far-reaching views of the immense rugged wilderness in which it is located, as well as the waterholes below it.
Accommodation & Facilities
Mwiba has ten beautifully designed tented suites, each positioned to make the most of the views and to offer complete privacy. Two pairs of suites are connected by walkways, ideal for families with older children or friends travelling together. The luxurious tents are huge, and have sofa beds for younger children, armchairs, and a writing desk, as well as dressing space, and a large outside deck. The en-suite bathrooms feature bathtubs positioned to give views out into the bush, as well as large inside and outside showers. The lodge has a spectacular mess, built of stone and thatch on several levels, with a lavish dining room, a lounge and bar, a library, a wine cellar, and a pool on the outside deck below. The lodge also has a lovely spa and a gym.
Wildlife & Activities
Wildlife viewing at Mwiba is excellent, with many animals visiting the springs below the lodge. Day and night wildlife drives with a private guide and vehicle and walking safaris allow guests to explore further, and the species that might be seen include lion, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, hyena, giraffe, eland, warthog and zebra. Walks with Hadzabe and Datoga people can sometimes be arranged, and offer fascinating insights in the lives of these traditional tribes in a remote and rugged part of Tanzania. Sundowners, meals in the bush, and picnics are lovely ways to enjoy the wilderness, while fly-camping is also an option; there are numerous places where you can sleep under the stars, including the top of the escarpment overlooking the Rift Valley and Lake Eyasi.
