Located on a pristine, tropical island within beautiful Lake Malawi National Park, Mumbo Island Camp provides an idyllic paradise retreat.
The camp’s five units are perched on giant rocks high above the crystal-clear waters and under the shade of the lush trees. There are two twin tents and three twin-bedded reed chalets. The beds can be pushed together to form a double. There is also one family tent with four twin beds. The en suite bathrooms include a traditional hot-bucket showers and eco-loos. However, the best feature of every unit is the wooden porch with its tropical views and inviting hammock.
The camp is ideally located on Mumbo Island, an unspoiled and deserted tropical island within Lake Malawi National Park. The island is only a little over a half mile in diameter yet is heavily wooded, with baobab trees, fichus, and many other tropical varieties of tree. But it’s the lake that everyone really comes to see with its labyrinth of underwater boulders, calm and clear waters, and plethora of colorful cichlid fish as well as over 2,000 species of freshwater fish. Lake Malawi is the world’s first freshwater national park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
