Are you looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of fish markets and civilization? Perhaps you’ve been searching for a romantic retreat in a tranquil and watery setting? Your quest ends at the Mfungano Island Camp. With just one road on the island and virtually no vehicles, the only sounds you will hear are those of nature. Fill up your days sprawling in the sun, indulging in fresh fish dishes and other delectable fares.

Shaded by giant fig trees and lost to the world, Mfangano Island Camp is an oasis of tranquility, an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Your first view is of beautiful tropical gardens set on a secluded bay. Lawns hug the waterline, flowerbeds and rock gardens surround the camp. Enormous boulders sit at the lake’s edge, a perch for cormorants or giant monitor lizards to sun themselves. If all you desire is to laze in the sunshine, each room has its own private veranda with sun beds. Or there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied. The food’s as fresh as can be, fished from the lake (hopefully by you!) or picked fresh from the island’s vegetable gardens and orchards.
