An exlusive camp situated on a pristine and otherwise deserted tropical island floating on the clear waters of Lake Malawi.
Located off the Cape Maclear Peninsula on Lake Malawi.
Accommodation and facilities:
Accommodating fourteen guests, the camp is perched on rocks high above the water and blends in perfectly to create a place of rustic charm and minimal impact. Tucked into the lush foliage, each tent is fully furnished with its own shaded view-deck and hammock and equipped with hot bucket showers and ’eco-loos’.There is a dining area, bar and water sport gazebo, all of timber, thatch and canvas, and all adhering to the principles of eco-architecture.
The most popular activities here are snorkelling through the crystal-clear water and lazing in a hammock or in the ’chill-out’ area, contemplating the stunning scenery. Other activities include diving, swimming, kayaking, and birdwatching. Guests also have the option of boating or paddling and exploring the granitic islands in a freshwater Rift Valley lake.
Unlike most island destinations in the region, Mumbo Island has never been populated by humans and is still in its natural state. This, together with the focus on non-motorised water sports, makes Mumbo Island ideal for the active outdoors enthusiast.
