Mwiba Lodge, Tanzania

Experience ultimate luxury and flawless service at this intimate, privately owned lodge on the banks of the Arugusinyai River.

The marvellous Mwiba Lodge, the latest addition to the Legendary Expeditions portfolio, is perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the seasonal Arugusinyai River. It sits within a private reserve encompassing nearly 130,000 acres of pristine wilderness, where dozens of freshwater springs support a spectacular array of wildlife. Guests are ensured a truly exclusive and personalised experience, with day and night game drives, bush walks and cultural excursions to local tribes all on offer. 

Set amidst stone boulders and ancient acacia trees, the lodge itself is beautifully integrated into its surroundings, blending both traditional and modern design elements with textured creams, suedes, tans and charcoal accents. Guests have a choice of ten well-appointed tented suites, each furnished with ornate wooden tables, linen dressed sofas, soaking tubs and private outdoor showers. Each room also enjoys a gorgeous view across the river, whilst the slate-lined infinity pool overlooks three game-rich springs.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
