Standing high on the banks of the slow, brown Rufiji River, with glorious views down to the plunging torrents of Stiegler’s Gorge, the Serena Mivumo River Lodge offers just twelve luxurious rooms, each of which is housed in a timbered chalet with private viewing deck and plunge pool. Traditionally thatched, with high vaulted ceilings and picture windows, each room features an engaging mix of classic safari antiques and ultra-modern leather and rattan styled furniture.
Softly lit and breeze-cooled, the lodge offers the ultimate escape to one of the world’s last undiscovered wilderness frontiers. Overlooking the Rufiji River, the spacious central dining room, lounge, library and bar each have their own spacious timber and thatched chalets, which are interconnected by broad wooden walkways offering excellent views of the hippos and elephants of the riverbank. High on the riverbank is a spectacular ‘infinity’ pool and sun deck.
This exclusive river lodge offers only 12 exclusive rooms. Widely spaced amongst the indigenous forest, each is accommodated in its own wildwood chalet, whose brushwood-thatched roof is high vaulted to allow maximum play of light and breeze. Slightly raised on sprung wooden floors, each room features a charming mix of Edwardian crystal chandeliers, marble basins, classic safari antiques and subtly understated modern leather and rattan furniture. The spacious and opulent country-house-inspired bathrooms also feature an exterior shower with wilderness views. Each room has its own extensive private sun deck, loungers, plunge-pool and river views.
