Malawi Island Hopping Adventure

7 Day Lake Malawi Island Hopping by Kayak

An adventure for your bucket list, our Lake Malawi Island Hopping Adventure is a fully supported and catered kayaking trip staying on 2 of the lakes most prestine and preserved islands, Mumbo and Domwe.

Our Malawi Island Hopper Package covers eight kilometres of open water separating Mumbo Island from Domwe. On Mumbo Island barefoot luxury is the theme. There is everything you need and nothing that you don't. The camp is perched on high rocks overlooking the water and blends in with the African bush to create a Robinson Crusoe atmosphere of rustic charm.

Both camps are built using only reeds, timber, thatch and canvas. The emphasis is on the beauty provided by Mother Nature, and on doing stuff like sea kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and exploring on foot. Of course - these being islands this list also includes just doing nothing...

You have the choice of traveling between the islands by boat or paddling it yourself by kayak.
