Mumbo Island Camp Game Viewing and Activities

Lake Malawi is famous for its abundance and diversity of fish life and holds a greater array of freshwater fish species than any other lake on Earth. The focus at Mumbo Island Camp is on non-motorised water sports, which makes the camp ideal for active guests and outdoor enthusiasts. The most popular activities here are snorkelling and diving (Mumbo is a PADI registered resort, offering beginner, advanced and specialty courses, as well as gear hire and casual dives), swimming, kayaking, and bird-watching. Guests have the option of boating or paddling, or exploring the island's freshwater Rift Valley lake. Birders can enjoy the abundant African Fish-Eagles amongst others; and snorkellers can view enormous numbers of the cichlid fish species. These small, colourful fish have adapted to so many variations that they are considered of comparable importance to the Galapagos finches in the study of evolution.
