According to its website, Kayak Africa run Mumbo as an entirely off grid, green camp to keep it unspoilt.

Mumbo Island Camp accommodates 14 guests. The camp is built with timber, thatch and canvas, and is perched on high rocks that overlooks the water. According to its website, this was done to  “create a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ atmosphere of rustic charm”. Its decor sticks to the green ethos, with all the furniture and art sourced from the locals.
