Mfangano Island Camp


Shaded by giant fig trees in a secluded area on the banks of Lake Victoria, Mfangano Island Camp is one of Keyna's best-kept secrets and offers the perfect island retreat away from the distractions of modern life. This tranquil, remote camp has nine lodges, all built in the local Luo tribal style close to the edge of the water, and tastefully decorated with local handicrafts. An excellent place to escape to after an exhilarating Masai Mara safari, Mfangano is equipped with a swimming pool made from natural stone, allowing you to bask in the sunshine and look out over Lake Victoria, or perhaps you'll take a traditional dhow cruise along the waters. Private verandas feature your own sunbeds to relax on, perfect for watching that unforgettable African sunset.

Fishing is a very popular activity at Mfangano, and you'll get to taste the freshly caught Nile Perch in the evenings whilst gazing out across the lake. The ideal spot for relaxation, Mfangano also makes for an excellent honeymoon destination. The honeymoon suite is truly special, and the calming banks of Lake Victoria make for an unforgettable romantic getaway.
