Travel: Mumbo Island Offers You Barefoot Luxury

- Advertisement -

Mumbo Island is a pristine and deserted tropical island, and the undisputed jewel of the Lake Malawi National Park. Mumbo Island has never been populated, and is still in its natural state with a thick covering of miombo woodland and ancient fig and baobab trees.The waters around the island are clean and calm, and allow all guests – irrespective of fitness or experience – to enjoy sea kayaking, snorkelling and scuba diving. The islands only mammals spotted-necked Otters are remarkably playful and regularly join guests for a snorkel or swim.
On Mumbo Island the theme is barefoot luxury – there is everything that you need and nothing that you don’t. The tiny island camp sleeps only fourteen guests in tastefully furnished tents with shaded decks, hammocks, and en suite hot bucket showers and eco-loos. A dining room and bar, with a lovely lounge under a baobab tree, complete camp infrastructure.
The camp is built of reeds, timber, thatch and canvas. It is perched on high rocks overlooking the water and blends in with the African bush to create a Robinson Crusoe atmosphere of rustic charm. The whole of Mumbo Island lies within an exclusive concession, thus guaranteeing privacy in paradise. Mumbo Island Camp ranks amongst the finest in Malawi, and is a member of the prestigious Wilderness Safaris Portfolio. Mumbo Island is part of the Lake Malawi National Park. In 1980 the National Park became the first fresh-water marine reserve to be proclaimed on earth, and was declared a Natural World Heritage Site in 1984. Lake Malawi contains the largest number of fish species of any lake in the world, probably well over five hundred with perhaps half occurring in the National Park area. The cichlid fish population specifically is of comparable importance in the study of evolution to the finches of the Galapagos Islands, with adaptive radiation and speciation (the actual process of evolution) taking place continuously even to this day! Lake Malawi is unique and forms a separate bio-geographical province. It is estimated to be between three and twenty million years old. The lake is 600km long, 80km wide and over 700m deep; and is the southern extremity of the African Rift Valley. Credit: Kayak Africa
