Mumbo Island is a pristine and deserted tropical island floating on the expansive waters of the Lake Malawi National Park. With a maze of massive underwater boulders, innumerable species of colourful cichlid fish and calm, clear water, the National Park offers what many consider the best freshwater snorkeling and SCUBA diving in the world.
Mumbo Island is only 1km in diameter and has never been populated so it remains in a pristine, natural state. Kayak Africa run Mumbo as an entirely off grid, green camp so that it remains as unspoilt and perfect as it has been forever.
Unlike most other island destinations in the region, Mumbo Island has never been populated and is still in its natural state. This, together with the focus on non-motorised watersports, makes Mumbo Island ideal for active outdoor enthusiasts. At the same time, the remoteness and serene surroundings of the island means that there is no shortage of opportunities for relaxation.
