Go green and enjoy the beauty of Lake Malawi at Mumbo Island


Picture yourself lying in a hammock with a sunbeam tickling your cheek, a book by your side, and the cornflower blue of Lake Malawi all around. This is the daily dream of Mumbo Island – a small, tropical isle floating on the famous freshwater lake.

Known not only for its scenery but also for its sustainable practices, Mumbo Island is one of Southern Africa’s Top 50 camps in terms of its green status. The camp accommodation is as environmentally friendly as possible, with locally furnished tents with decks, hammocks, hot bucket showers, and eco-toilets. There’s no electricity so enjoy the soft flickering of paraffin lamps and candle light, complemented by the brilliance of the stars.

As Lake Malawi has the highest number of fish species of any lake in the world, it’s perfect for snorkelling and famed for its diving sites. Aside from underwater sports, guests can also fish, sail, hike, kayak, or simply laze away the days in a hammock. If Robinson Crusoe was a real man planning a holiday, Mumbo Island is where he would want to go.
