Mwiba Lodge is located in the heart of the private Mwiba Wildlife Reserve located just south of the Maswa Game Reserve and just outside the south-west corner of the Serengeti National Park.

Mwiba Lodge is a luxurious and sophisticated property which can rival the very top lodges in East Africa. It was the feel of a luxury South African Lodge, with impressive, spacious and private rooms which all directly overlook the bush. The central areas are very comfortable and there is plenty of opportunity to relax. The management are very attentive and the staff are friendly and welcoming, though this is a property where guests naturally keep themselves to themselves a little and enjoy the exclusivity of the location and activities. The location outside the park is fantastic for offering exclusivity and some varied activities, including a brilliant bushman walk with Hadzabe hunter-gatherers, but it does mean a longer drive to reach the core game viewing areas of the southern Serengeti. If your priority is spending time out on the plains with the migration herds (December to March) or photographing big cats, you need to be aware that access is not immediate. In terms of a 5 star property in the Southern Serengeti, Mwiba Lodge is the only option!
