Location & Directions

Southern Serengeti, Tanzania

Mwiba River Lodge is situated in a private 51,000 acre wildlife reserve adjoining the southern Serengeti and overlooking a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River.

When to go

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
