Mumbo Island is a pristine, deserted tropical island in the world’s first freshwater national park: Lake Malawi National Park. Here, just 7 comfortable tents perched on rocks high above the water and tucked into the foliage. Each tent has a hot bucket shower and ‘eco-loo’, its own shaded view-deck and hammock.
Mumbo Island Camp adheres to strict principles of eco-architecture, so the dining area, bar and water sport gazebo, are all hand built from timber, thatch and canvas and solar energy is used.
Excellent sea kayaking, snorkelling and SCUBA facilities enable the active guest to interact with an impressive piece of nature: granitic islands in a fresh-water Rift Valley lake; Fish Eagles abundant as naturally possible; and a Cichlid fish population of comparable importance to the Galapagos finches in the study of evolution.
Unlike most other island destinations in the region, Mumbo Island has never been populated 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.
