Mumbo and Domwe Island Accommodation

In Lake Malawi National Park, guests are accommodated on the remote Mumbo or Domwe Island on the shores of Lake Malawi.

Lake Malawi National Park accommodation consists of Mumbo Island and Domwe Island. On the islands, there is no electricity provided. Therefore all lightning is by means of hurricane lanterns. The water is purified although the necessity of this is debatable.

Staying on Mumbo Island

A maximum of 14 guests on Mumbo Island sleep in 5 double tents and one family unit with 4 beds. Please note that the twin beds can be easily pushed together to make a double bed. The tents are raised on timber decks or on the high rocks that are typical around this island. The family unit sits closer to the ground making it very child-friendly.

All tents are built under a thatched roof and have en-suite bathrooms with a toilet and shower. The toilets are environmentally-friendly dry composter toilets. The showers are the bucket variety with fire-warmed water. Each tent provides mosquito netting and a viewing deck overlooking Lake Malawi.

All meal times are flexible due to activities and varying arrival and departure times. The breakfast consists of fruit salad, home-made cereals, eggs and bacon as well as freshly baked bread. For lunch and dinner, an array of salads, fresh fish, chicken and vegetable casseroles, curries, stir-fries and pasta dishes is served.

Staying on Domwe Island

Domwe Island comprises a number of different style rooms accommodating a maximum of 10 guests. The 3 tents are furnished with twin beds which can easily pushed together to make a double bed.

Each tent at this Malawi accommodation is raised on a timber deck under thatched roof and has mosquito netting. Several tents share on privately situated dry composter toilets and a bucket shower suspended from a Baoab tree with fire-warmed water. The viewing decks overlook Lake Malawi.

The camp on Domwe Island is run on a self-catering basis. A kitchen with gas stove, fridge and all cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery is provided on the campsite. Two full-time staff members assist guests in the kitchen.
