Mumbo Island Camp is situated on a pristine and otherwise-deserted island in Lake Malawi, itself lying within an exclusive concession area and part of the Lake Malawi National Park. This park - a World Heritage Site - was the first freshwater marine reserve in the world and is home to more than 500 species of fish, of which over 90% are endemic.
This intimate lodge adheres to the principles of eco-architecture and is constructed of timber, thatch and canvas, and blends into the surrounding vegetation and large granite boulders. The tents are set on raised platforms with separate eco-toilets and bucket showers to help preserve the environment. You can spend your days at Mumbo doing little more than lying in hammocks or gently floating on the lake but if you're feeling more energetic, there are many activities to enjoy including kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving and bird watching.
