Mwiba Lodge

Explore Tanzania

Peeking out from the tree canopy and surrounded by boulders, Mwiba Lodge is an incredible property to visit. With views of a huge gorge found on the Arugusinyai River, the Lodge is an excellent base from which to explore the Serengeti and the plethora of wildlife that call it home, including the great hordes of wildebeest and zebra during the Great Migration. The luxury accommodation at the lodge offers a touch of colonial class and echoes the old world safaris of yesteryear, adding a layer of authenticity to a stay here.

Raised high on wooden platforms, the 8 tented suites hold splendid views and are luxuriously appointed. Spacious interiors are defined by the meeting of charming canvas walls and ceilings and wooden flooring. Beautifully furnished with armchairs, wooden tables and large double beds, the rooms artfully blend with their surrounds, employing a palette of natural colours. Bathrooms feature large bathtubs and outdoor showers, all of which possess excellent views of the area.

Experience thrilling game drives in the 51,000 acre reserve in which the lodge is set, along with exciting bush walks. Guests can also visit a traditional village and experience the local culture first-hand. When not on activities enjoy casual game viewing from the hotel's infinity pool and bask in the area's natural beauty.

How to get to Mwiba Lodge

This lodge can be reached by road either from the Ngorongoro Crater or Lake Manyara National Park. Alternatively it is possible to fly to a nearby airstrip from many locations within the northern circuit of Tanzania.

I couldn't give the other locations 5's because Mwiba was a step above in every way. We have been fortunate enough to stay in a few 5 star resorts but Mwiba topped them all. I can't come up with enough positive adjectives. Everything was first rate without a detail missed. Don't know how it was accomplished in such a remote location but the food was truly fine dining. Great wine. The sunset's with cocktails and snacks were truly memorable. In spite of all of the luxury the atmosphere was friendly and comfortable; not stiff and stuffy. Although, in the end without the people it doesn't hit the "adjectives can't properly describe it" category. Jen, Benjamin and Robin were first rate in all ways (as was the entire staff) and we will remember them fondly for a long, long time. We sincerely thank them and greatly appreciate all of their efforts and hard work. Lastly, can't forget the animals. Not sure if it's always the case but at Mwiba we were fortunate enough to see lions, a leopard, cheetah with babies, elephant's, giraffe's, wildebeest, zebra's, warthogs, various antelope species, turtles, varied birds, buffalo, baboons, etc., etc., etc.
