Mudhut Accommodation

Spend the night in a traditionally built Mudhut - they may be made from mud... but these are luxury mudhuts!

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


A river-facing verandah opens into a comfortable and airy interior. The inside of the Mudhut is fully decorated and furnished with unique rustic furniture - handmade in our camp workshop 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.

The 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 in the evenings, each hut has a solar power system providing lighting and a fan to keep you cool during warmer nights.


Mudhut number 3 with an extra bed added.


No two Mudhuts are the same - each is unique with its own character and design. All Mudhuts are located high along the river bank and have views of the Rufiji river and its many crocodiles and hippos. Some rooms are large enough to add additional beds to create twins, triples, or rooms for four. A larger, two bedroom Family Mudhut is also available.

Staying in one of these remarkable Mudhuts is a once in a lifetime experience in itself. 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.
