"...places that touch your soul."

Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria is the setting for a holiday that’s about as far away from it all as you can possibly get. It’s the world’s second largest freshwater lake and is the magical source of the Nile. The Lake is rich in fish and bird life, its islands lush and verdant. The deep blue waters support an abundant ecosystem. Its shores are lined with groves of banana trees and fishing villages where you’ll always be greeted with a friendly smile and a wave. The chance to catch the giant Nile perch draws many. Some come for the abundant birds, fish eagles, kingfishers and pelicans, others to glimpse the playful otters. Above all Mfangano Island Camp is an ideal place just to relax, swim, fish, read and feel yourself a million miles from anywhere. A place to soothe your soul, to treat yourself to fish caught fresh that day, to fruit and vegetables from our own lakeside gardens.

September news from Mfangano Island Camp

This month we said goodbye to Miles and welcomed new manager Thor. Thor returns to Mfangano after 25 years when he last visited us as one of our littler guests. Mfangano has had a warm and balmy weather. New hammocks have gone in to the camp, a pair of double toothed barbets are nesting above the pool, fish eagles call from the bluff above camp and the otters have been swimming past camp in the mornings. We held a successful permaculture workshop for widows on the island and we are now working on the next phases of our permaculture gardens.
