Fodor's Review

Set high on a bluff above Tanzania's biggest river, the mighty Rufiji, Mivumo lodge hosts a beautiful location with relaxing river views. There are 12 large thatch-roof suites with wall-to-ceiling windows, a big en-suite bathroom with chandelier, his-and-her marble basins, a claw-foot bath, and a handcarved wooden screen and mirrors.You even have a private plunge pool (and rain shower) from where you can watch hippos snooze or crocodiles sunbathe. Spread over three levels, there is a pool deck, a viewing deck, and thatch-sheltered sitting and dining area overlooking the river. Daylong drives into the middle of the reserve where giraffe and lion abound are spectacular. A boat trip up the Stiegler Gorge (named after a famous early 1900s elephant hunter) is a must.
