Location:

Mumbo Island is an exclusive camp situated on a pristine and otherwise-deserted tropical island floating on the clear waters of Lake Malawi.

The Island lies within an exclusive concession area, in turn part of the Lake Malawi National Park, the first freshwater marine reserve in the world. With waters that are so crystal clear, the diving and snorkeling are among the best in Lake Malawi.

Snorkelling at Mumbo Island Camp (Lake Malawi National Park) Malawi - www.africansafaris.travel
 
 
Activities:

Guests can relax in tranquil surroundings with delicious cuisine, lying in hammocks or gently floating in the waters; but for the more energetic there is a variety of activities:

Excellent sea kayaking, snorkeling and scuba facilities enable the active guest to interact with an impressive piece of nature...

Exploring the granitic islands in a freshwater Rift Valley lake; birders will enjoy the abundant Fish Eagles; and snorkelers can view enormous numbers of the Cichlid fish species; these small, colorful fish have adapted to so many variations that they are considered of comparable importance to the Galapagos finches in the study of evolution.




Kayaking at Mumbo Island Camp (Lake Malawi National Park) Malawi - www.africansafaris.travelLake Malawi National Park, the first freshwater marine reserve proclaimed on Earth and declared a Natural World Heritage Site in 1984. Lake Malawi contains the largest number of fish species of any lake in the world; more than five hundred different species have been recorded, with perhaps half occurring in the National Park area. Endemism is high (thought to exceed 90%) and adaptive radiation and speciation within the lake is remarkable. Lake Malawi is unique and forms a separate bio-geographical province. It is estimated to be between one and two million years old. The lake, ninth largest in the world, is 600km long and 80km wide, and forms the southern extremity of the African Rift Valley. Electricity and water There is no electricity on the island. The kitchen works off gas, and all lighting is by means of hurricane lanterns. All water is purified, although the necessity of this is debatable.

Freedom and quality island time - together with a good dose of healthy outdoor fun - is what visits to Mumbo Island are all about. The only fixed items on the schedule are meals, and guests are otherwise free to choose between activity, exploration and leisure. Highly recommended are pre-breakfast swims, which redefine the term “refreshing,” and sunset kayak circumnavigations of the island.

 

Meal times are flexible with respect to activities and arrival and departure times. A hearty breakfast of fruit salad, freshly baked bread, eggs and bacon sets the tone for the day. Lunches and dinners feature an array of salads, fresh fish, chicken and vegetable casseroles, curries, stir-fries and pasta dishes.

Drinks, scuba diving and tips are not included in the nightly tariffs, and these accounts must be settled before departure. Payments for such extras can be made by credit card or with US Dollar, British Pound, Euro or Malawi Kwacha cash. Laundry services are free of charge.

 

  Accommodation Rates:-  From $290 per person per night sharing. Please contact us for a quote and suggested itinerary.
