Mfangano Island Camp (Lake Victoria) Kenya


 
 
Location:

Lapped by the waters of Lake Victoria, 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.

The island has just one road and no other hotels to disturb the peace. The only way to reach Mfangano Island is by light aircraft, an adventure in itself. You land on a dusty airstrip, then it’s a short ride by speedboat to the camp.

Your first view is of beautiful gardens set on a secluded bay. Lawns hug the waterline, flowerbeds and rock gardens surround the camp. Enormous boulders sit at the water’s edge, a perch for cormorants or giant monitor lizards to sun themselves.




Accommodation:

All the buildings are in the local Luo tribal style, walls of smoothed mud and clay, roofs of thatch and banana leaf - cool and airy. The dining room and lounge are fanned by breezes from the lake.

There are just six rooms. Each set close to the waters edge, decorated with local handicrafts. Bathrooms with modern fittings are finished in local stone. At night the sound of waves will lull you to sleep.

If all you desire is to laze in the sunshine, each room has it’s 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.

 




Activities:

The Nile perch is the king of the lake’s fish. It can grow to 1.8 meters (6 feet) long, weigh 140 kilograms (300 pounds) and is delicious eating. In the shallows there are tilapia. We provide all the specialist fishing tackle you need. A tug on the line, the whine of the reel as the giant Nile perch you’ve hooked dives to the lake bottom, the fight is on.

Whether you’re a keen fisherman or just fancy a go, catching a perch is something you won’t forget. But there’s much more too on Lake Victoria. The bird and wildlife is fascinating. The people amongst the friendliest you’ll meet anywhere. The sparkling waters perfect for a refreshing dip. Mfangano Island Camp is an ideal base for all these.

Our fleet of fiberglass speedboats are staffed by local boatmen. If you fancy a whole day on the water we’ll pack a picnic and a cooler full of cold drinks.

The cry of the fish eagle is a sound you’ll hear often. These majestic birds are the most spectacular of the lake’s many species. If you’re lucky you’ll see one swoop to pluck a live fish from the waters.

Our specialist ornithologist can help you discover colonies of diving cormorants colorful kingfishers and pelicans.




Practicalities:

· All activities are included in the room rate
· We provide all fishing equipment, just bring a hat and sunscreen
· Fishing is for all standards, newcomers and non-fishermen are as welcome as experts.
