Things to do

Enjoy sandbank sundowners at Mivumo River Lodge

Sit down and share stories with your guide while watching life unfold on the river as the sun slowly begins to set…

By Simon Magaigwa
Camp Manager, Serena Mivumo River Lodge

Enjoy a safari experience that dates back to the 1920s – watching the sunset over the African landscape while sipping a chilled cocktail. After a day spent on game drives spotting spectacular wildlife with your guide in Nyerere National Park, sit back and relax as we take you by boat to our special sundowner spot on the sandbank. As you drift down the Rufiji river, look out for hippos and crocodiles, as well as animals on the banks munching leaves or having a drink.

The sundowner site will be set up for you with tables and chairs, plus a selection of cold drinks and snacks. Sit down and share stories with your guide while watching life unfold on the river as the sun goes down, turning the sky dramatic shades of orange and red. It’s a signature safari experience and guests love the tranquil riverside setting. It’s just magical for photographs and the perfect way to end your day at Mivumo River Lodge.
