Mumbo Island

Address: Southern Lakeshore, Cape Maclear view map

Mumbo Island Camp is named after the pristine, practically deserted tropical island on which it is built. The crystal-clear, warm waters of Lake Malawi National Park boast some 2000 species of fish. It's no wonder this region of Lake Malawi is often considered the best freshwater diving and snorkelling location on the planet.

Mumbo is the perfect hideaway for couples wanting the ultimate romantic holiday. Lying in bed listening to the waves break against the rocks and being woken with coffee and homemade biscuits before rolling out and into the crystal clear waters - idyllic!

When we arrived the host said, "if we packed up today and left, you'd never know we'd been there" and you definitely get that impression. Very impressive that it can feel so luxurious and have such little impact on the island/lake/planet.
