Mumbo Island, Lake Malawi

Mumbo Island

With exclusive access to the private Resort of Mumbo, Cape Maclear Scuba is the only dive centre who can take you to the best diving sites in the lake.

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 allowing guests to enjoy sea kayaking, snorkelling and scuba diving. The islands only mammals – spotted-necked otters – are remarkably playful and regularly join guests for a swim.
