Mumbo Island

Address: Southern Lakeshore, Cape Maclear view map

Mumbo Island is reached by motorized boat from the mainland bay of Cape Maclear. The lodge is tucked into one side of the island and almost hidden from sight until you approach the small bay. The island only accommodates 14 guests and you feel like you are on a deserted island until you need something then the staff suddenly appear and your gin and tonic is refilled!

Accommodation Feedback

Best place we've ever stayed! Incredibly beautiful and well run.

Mr Hans D.. -Netherlands

I think the usual host was on holiday, but got our huts wrong and even when this was mentioned did not seem bothered saying they are all the same, they clerarly wernt we eventually got the hut we had booked. Food (pizza for lunch and lasagnge for diner) was dissapointing for the price. The Island itself was amazing though and justify's the price on its own just a few small improvements and this would have been the dream trip we had hoped far, not far off though!
