Mwiba Lodge

A haven of luxury in the wilderness

Stunningly situated in a private 129,500-acre wildlife reserve bordering the southern Serengeti, Mwiba Lodge overlooks a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River.

A haven of luxury in the wilderness, Mwiba is both intimate and exclusive. Built amongst massive stone boulders and surrounded by ancient coral trees and acacias, the lodge becomes part of the very landscape. The enormous, thatched roof of the main lodge rests upon massive boulders. It boasts two outdoor decks: an upper deck which houses the lounge and dining rooms, and a lower deck featuring an impressive infinity pool surrounded by comfortable sun lounges. The pool overlooks natural springs which attract an array of resident wildlife. Breathtaking in its scale and craftsmanship, the lodge interiors seamlessly blend the traditional and modern together, using classic safari colours – pure whites, khaki tans and darker charcoals.

Guests are accommodated in 10 immaculate, welcoming suites with awe-inspiring views and doors opening onto a private outdoor deck. Open plan and spacious, each canvas clad suite has large windows which bring the outside in, king or twin beds, and a lovely lounge area. The superb ensuite bathrooms feature large floor to ceiling windows with gorgeous stark-white curtains which allow you to be open or closed to the elements. Each is fitted with a romantic freestanding bathtub and an oil lamp – ideal for relaxing during the afternoon or after dinner.

To top off the list of facilities, the camp also has a stunning Jacuzzi, which is built into the side of a huge boulder with views of the springs below.


Whilst at Mwiba Lodge guests can choose from a wealth of activities including walking safaris, day and night game drives and classic sundowners – a highlight of any safari.
