Set among massive stone boulders and ancient coral trees as it overlooks a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River, Mwiba Lodge is an exclusive and luxurious haven of tranquility.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of eight tented suites with a comfortable canopy bed configured as either two twins or a king and cooled by green air-conditioning. Each wide-open and spacious suite is tastefully decorated in shades of textured creams paired with suede, tans, and accents of chocolate and charcoal. The lounge has linen-covered sofas and copper lamps. While, the elegant en suite bathrooms feature copper fixtures, large soaking tubs, and romantic, private outside showers. Moreover, every suite comes with its own private hardwood deck fitted with loungers for relaxing and enjoying the magnificent views.
The lodge occupies 125,000 acres of a remote and private concession that borders the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The surrounding area is made up of large boulders and thick vegetation perched on a dramatic escarpment that overlooks the river gorge. The private concession has thirty-three fresh springs that draw a wide variety of animals to the area including cheetah, lions, hartebeest, spotted hyenas, wild dogs, and more. Plus, the lodge sits in the pathway of the annual Great Migration when millions of wildebeests and thousands of zebras and Thomsons gazelles flood the area in search of new pastures as well as calving season. The lodge and private concession is owned by the Friedkin Conservation Fund who have protected more than 3.4 million acres of land in Tanzania.
