If you are looking to add that extra something to your safari experience, then look no further than Mwiba Lodges new addition. Fly camping is THE thing to do when on safari. Think glamping but with the addition of amazing sights, sounds and smells surrounding you. None of this muddy Glastonbury imagery, quite the opposite.
Mwiba Lodge lies on the edge of the Arugusinyai River in the Southern Serengeti, prime location during the calving season for the migrating wildebeest and zebra during January – March. Consisting of 8 luxurious tented suites perched above the river, with sensational views over the plains. So, what better way to use this opportunity to add in fly camping as an option to your stay.
Take a trip out into the wilderness away from the main camp itself where you will come across the most lavish set up – A sumptuous double bed, plush pillows, perhaps a hot water bottle just in case it gets a little chilly in the evenings, a perfectly laid fire, a table set up for two, a few nibbles and delicious supper topped off with a sensational view – it really doesn’t get any better than this. Oh, perhaps the additional soundtrack of the African night to set the tone may top this off. The bed is set beneath a spacious mosquito covering, with unspoilt views of the canvas of stars, planets and milky way.
Fly camping, as a whole, is a very unique, private and adventurous experience and it usually comes at the end of your evening or nights drive. So, set off on your evening drive, having packed a few necessary things you may need for a night, which the camp staff will place ready and waiting for you when you arrive at the fly camping site. This is perfect for the adventurous honeymoon couple looking to explore a bit further with their overall experience.
Not only is fly camping available at Mwiba Lodge, there are numerous adventures and fantastic activities to get up to here. Being privately owned and within its own 129,530-acre private reserve adjoining the Southern Serengeti, you can really take advantage of this. Open all year round is one of its many advantages – the weather is usually warm throughout, with fresh mornings and slightly chilly evenings, so be sure to pack a few warm items of clothing just in case.
