Holidays to Mwiba Wildlife Ranch, Tanzania

Almost unnoticeable, even upon arrival, Mwiba was designed to be the ultimate in stealth and luxury. Scattered amongst lush vegetation and huge boulders, connected by wooden walkways and nestled atop an escarpment that overlooks the gently rushing Arugusinyai River where animals come to drink, Mwiba is right in the middle of over 50,000 acres of private wildlife reserve.

The ranch boasts ten luxury tents, each with temperature control, hardwood floors, king-size beds and bathrooms with antique fixtures containing large baths overlooking the river gorge below. More than just simple tents, these suites brim with romance and adventure, every detail considered to maximise the comfort for its occupants and minimise the impact on the surrounding area.

Mwiba is not your average safari resort. This place was built to be part of the landscape. A place for rest, relaxation, solitude, and designed to bring the untamed wilderness of the Serengeti to its guests. And not the other way around.

The nature of a private reserve such as Mwiba means that guests have absolute freedom to go where they want, day or night. There are always expert guides on hand to drive and explain the glorious natural wonders that you'll encounter, such as giraffes lapping up water beneath a full moon in the twinkling night sky, wide-eyed bush babies frolicking in the trees, wily leopards and inquisitive hyenas. And all of this, without encountering a single other safari vehicle (unless they have something exciting for you to see!).

It seems that here the shimmering of the acacias and the beauty of the kopjes is heightened by how untouched the vast wilderness that surrounds the ranch is.

Mwiba is owned and run by a Texan billionaire who manages a private wildlife estate roughly the size of Rwanda. He and his family had a vision of a unique style of bucolic African luxury that coexists in total harmony with its surroundings. They brought that vision to life with a magnificence that makes the time spent here an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Let's talk
I grew up near the picturesque fishing village of Rye, in East Sussex. However, my heart has always been in Africa since I was a young girl. Having a South African father meant my love for the history and colour of this fantastic continent has been a prominent part of my life, and so getting to travel to seven different countries over the last few years has been a dream come true. One of my highlights was flying in the famous yellow bi-plane across Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.
