Mudhut Rooms

They may be made of mud... but these are luxury mudhuts where standards are far from primitive!

Step inside, and the interor is fully decorated, fully furnished and comfortable. A four-poster bed, solar-power electricity, and an en-suite bathroom with hot running water await you.

Mudhut Accommodation at Selous River Camp

Crafted by traditional Tanzanian methods from earth, sticks and sisal rope, and thatched with doum palm leaves, the Mudhuts blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings.

A river-facing verandah or seating area opens into a comfortable and airy interior. The inside of the Mudhut is fully decorated and furnished with unique rustic furniture - handmade in camp from tree branches - including a four-poster double bed, draped romantically with fine mosquito netting. Bed linen and curtains are tailormade from brightly-coloured African kitenge fabrics, and handwoven palm mat carpets the floor.

An en-suite bathroom features a hot water shower, european flush toilet and handmade terracotta washbasin. Water is heated a short distance from your hut by a traditional wood-burning stove. Towels, washcloths and soaps are all provided.

Softly lit by lanterns in the evenings, each hut also has a solar power system to provide lighting and a fan for warm evenings.

No two Mudhuts are the same - each is unique and has its own character and design. All Mudhuts are located along the river bank and have views of the Rufiji river. Most rooms are large enough to add additional beds to create twins, triples, or family rooms for four.

Staying in one of these remarkable Mudhuts is a once in a lifetime experience in itself - being so different from the usual accommodation on offer. Sleeping in a Mudhut allows you the chance to relax with some of the comforts of home in an incredible rustic setting whilst experiencing the magic of falling asleep hearing the hippos honking in the river below and the bush babies in the trees above.
