Perched on a rocky outcrop the newest Legendary Expeditions project offers a stylish alternative to other high-end safari accommodation available in Tanzania.
Away from busy tourist areas, Mwiba occupies private land in the Serengeti. The varied landscape benefits from a river network that attracts wildlife and guarantees year round game viewing. Because the land is privately owned, it is possible to take night safaris as well as daytime game drives and walking tours. Specially constructed hides provide exceptional observation and photographic opportunities.
There are ten en-suite tents at Mwiba, though ‘tents’ hardly does justice to the style and comfort of this lodge. Guests are indeed under canvas, but the rooms are furnished in a manner that brings to mind the elegance of style enjoyed by the likes of Laurence van der Post and Livingstone – with a contemporary twist. The natural colour scheme of wicker and pale suede creates a light and airy atmosphere and spacious design means one room flows naturally into another. The aesthetic of yesteryear is seamlessly combined with modern amenities including internet access and mobile connectivity, eco-friendly gym and 24 hour security. Private decks invite calm reflection and guests can refresh in both indoor and outdoor showers or chill out in generous-sized bathtubs with vintage-style copper fittings.
The shared area at Mwiba Lodge include a lounge, bar, coffee veranda and library, while a slate lined infinity pool overlooks three springs, providing a panorama of visiting wildlife. Food-wise, skilled chefs can provide meals on request and as well as fine dining, Mwiba Lodge’s trademark picnic high teas are the subject of superb feedback.
Activities include game walks and game drives, bird watching, cultural tours and massage treatments.
Please note that Legendary Expeditions actively support the conservation of Tanzania’s wilderness, local communities and wildlife.
