Mfangano Island Camp - Lake Victoria

Mfangano Island Camp is a luxury, island hideaway lodge, where you can enjoy a relaxing break on a tropical island on the shores of Lake Victoria.

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. 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 water’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 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.

Mfangano Island Camp has nine double-bedded cottages, including a beautiful dedicated family cottage, situated right on the lakeshore. Each room has been built in the Luo tribal style, with banana thatch and natural clay. All rooms offer spectacular vistas across the lake with picturesque dhows sailing by. The rooms are light and airy with four-poster beds.

There is also a “horizon” swimming pool located right on the lakeshore. Mfangano Island Camp has a stunning honeymoon suite if you are looking for something very special.

The meals at Mfangano Island Camp are superb. Fresh salads and the daily catch of Nile Perch are served overlooking the lake with freshly made crusty bread and chilled wine. Birds sing all day on Mfangano Island. The Cormorants dive for fish nearby or spread their wings to dry in the sun. Sunbirds flit from flower to flower in the lush tropical gardens and weaver birds busy themselves building nests in the trees.
