Summary

Short description

Accommodation

Recommended for:
Beach | Diving | Natural world | Relaxation | Wildlife

Location

Situated within Lake Malawi National Park, Mumbo Island is small – just one kilometre in diameter and uninhabited – so is resplendent in its natural state. The camp is accessible via self-drive or fly-and transfer, located approximately three hours from Malawi’s two international airports Lilongwe and Cape Maclear, followed by a 45-minute boat trip to the island.

Accommodation

Catering for up to 14 guests at a time in five double tents and one four-bed family unit, the camp offers an intimate and personalised experience. The three reed chalets and two walk-in tents are set on wooden decks under thatched roofs. Rooms feature private decks and hammocks overlooking the spectacular waters of Mumbo and separate bathrooms.

Dining

Days begin with hearty breakfasts of fruit salad, freshly baked bread, eggs and Malawi-grown tea and coffee. Lunches and dinners vary, featuring an array of salads, fresh fish, casseroles, curries, stir-fries and pasta dishes. All of the camp's meals are prepared over an open fire in the 'bush kitchen'.

Facilities

Lake Malawi has a deserved reputation as one of the finest fresh-water diving and snorkelling sites anywhere in the world and the camp offers diving courses for all levels as well as equipment hire and casual dives. Other popular activities include swimming, kayaking, hiking and bird watching with African Fish Eagles and other species populating the area.
