Mumbo Island Camp is a small sustainable eco-camp located on Mumbo Island - ten kilometres off Cape Maclear on Lake Malawi. It is located within the Lake Malawi National Park and is reached by a gentle 45-minute boat ride in a traditional wooden fishing boat. The island is small, only one kilometre in diameter, and uninhabited so is in its natural state. The camp is hand built with timber, thatch and canvas and perched high on large boulders overlooking the lake.

Its is a good spot to come for a few days relaxing on the little beach, kayaking around the island, snorkelling or following one of the short walking trails around the island. It is also affordable which makes it one of the cheaper beach locations on Lake Malawi.
