Mivumo River Lodge
Owned and run by the well-known Serena property chain, Mivumo River Lodge is the sister camp to Selous Luxury Camp. Set up on the banks of the Rufiji River, not far from Steigler's Gorge, it is a high-quality, well-finished lodge which has all the creature comforts that you would expect from a hotel. As a result of this, however, it lacks the wilderness feel offered by many of the other camps in the Selous.
Our view of Mivumo River Lodge
The location of Mivumo River Lodge is very striking, with superb views both from the rooms and the communal areas. The lodge is finished to a high quality, too, although the excess of 'facilities' can lead it to feel slightly detached from its surroundings. Travellers who are after a wilderness experience will be disappointed here, but it would suit those who don't mind travelling a bit further to find game, in return for plenty of modern conveniences.
