The Selous game reserve is a great alternative to the busy Serengeti. It's very green and less developed, with more wildlife and nature to discover than we have expected.
The Mivumo lodge is built right on the river bank, has beautifully decorated 5-star luxury rooms with king-size beds, a private plunge pool and outdoor showers with views on the river and the hippos.
And there's more to see just outside the lodge: elephants, giraffes, leopards, water buffalos, zebras, pelicans, impalas, monkeys, waterbucks etc etc... all on 2 safari days (first by jeep than by boat). The only thing we didn't encounter were lions; but we could live with that.
The staff is super friendly, experienced and helpful, as well as the tour guides. And the food is good.
There's a pool and cocktail bar with wonderful views, which was great for refreshments in the afternoon.
Our vacation was organized by Africa Rose Travel, perfect service and good rates.
