Kayak Africa’s camps on Mumbo Island and Domwe Island are luxurious yet rustic. They are located within exclusive concession areas, guaranteeing privacy in paradise. Constructed entirely of timber, thatch and canvas, the campsites adhere to the strictest principles of eco-architecture. Accommodation is in large safari tents situated on thatched, wooden decks overlooking the lake. Each tent is fully furnished with its own shady view-deck and private hammock.
Once you are settled in a comfortable campsite, the choice of activities is endless. Besides sea kayaking, there’s also snorkelling, scuba diving, nature trails, bird watching, spear fishing and fishing. Shady hammocks or the beach are perfect retreats for those wanting to curl up with a good book. All itineraries are suitable for anyone who is in good health. Motorised boats are used as safety back up and to supply the camps. These boats are also available for anyone unwilling or unable to kayak.
The protected waters and nearby islands of Lake Malawi bring sea kayaking within reach of anyone irrespective of fitness or experience. The two-person kayaks are large and stable. Kayak Africa’s guides are ex-fishermen, adding local knowledge and experience to the safety mix.
Lake Malawi is a great place to scuba dive, ideally suited to beginners or those who prefer relaxed diving with no dangers. Kayak Africa is a PADI registered resort, offering beginner, advanced and speciality courses, as well as gear hire and casual dives.
Packages can be planned with or without flights. Packages range from a 4 night 5 day stay weekender which would be 2 nights at Club Makokola and 2 nights with Kayak Africa to as long as you like. We recommended a 7 night island hopping adventure, with the first and last nights at Club Makokola with or without scuba diving. This package commences every Sunday. Shorter itineraries can start any day of the week
