3 Day Fly-in Safari Itinerary

Serena Mivumo River Lodge Fly-in

Luxury hidden in the heart of the Selous

Standing high on the banks of the slow moving Rufiji River is the beautiful Serena Mivumo River Lodge, providing stunning views down to the roaring torrents of Stiegler's Gorge.

This hidden gem offers just twelve luxurious rooms, housed in a traditionally thatched, timbered chalet with private viewing deck and plunge pool, each of which features a beautiful mix of classic safari antiques with modern-styled furniture.

The central dining room, lounge and bar each have their own timber and thatched chalets overlooking the river, which are connected by broad wooden walkways, plus there is even an inviting infinity pool and sundeck.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Safaris on the river
  • Safari in the massive Selous
  • Relaxing on your private balcony
  • Enjoying delicious meals whilst watching hippos wallow in the river
