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 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.
Lapped by the waters of Lake Victoria shaded by giant fig trees, and lost to the world, Mfangano Island is an oasis of tranquility, an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life. 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.
