Mumbo was recently chosen chosen as one of the Top 50 sustainable lodges in Southern Africa in a new book titled “Africa’s Finest”.
Mumbo is featured in a gorgeous double page spread in the newly-published coffee table book: Africa’s Finest. We underwent rigorous testing by an independent environmental assessor and came out with a “near-faultless” score, making our camp one of the Top 50 in Southern Africa in terms of our sustainable practices.

This is some of what they had to say about Mumbo: “Mumbo Island was one of only a few places visited and assessed during the Green Safari project that led to Africa’s Finest book, which notched a near-faultless score. The story of Mumbo is really the story of the people who made it. This is no slick safari lodge, more the kind of place you go to chill out, taking things slow but sure, the better to capture the magic of the lake of stars.”

The book is advertised as follows: “Africa’s Finest is the game-changing book that celebrates the lodges and camps in Africa that are making a difference: those practicing environmentally friendly and sustainable tourism methods whilst providing world class safari and nature experiences,” and we are thrilled to be featured in it.
