Always a treat for our guests to sight the Spotted-Necked otters around camp. Although sadly in decline around the world, lake Victoria is a fantastic location for spotting the jittery little critters. Hunting for fish and crustecians is usually done in packs; they are highly sociable although a little shy around humans.
Relaxing afternoons are best spent in a hammock, overlooking the lake.....

A Great Cormorant giving us the beady eye from one of the rocks infront of camp. This is the larger of the two species  found in east Africa.  Expert divers: these birds feed primarily on fish .

Fresh batch of homemade lemonade - made by George! We have 28 lemon trees growing on our property so it's not just the vervet monkeys that make use of them!

One of our resident vervet monkeys. The late afternoons are always entertaining here, as this troop seem to become most active and mischievous during the later hours.

Dhows sailing past the camp are a common sight at Mfangano - usually out in search of the days catch. These locally built Dhows,  made from "Mvule" hardwood, are the main mode of transportation around the island - as they have been for decades.

Come and visit us, and if you fancy something a little more traditional than our camp speed boats, we can arrange dhow excursions  for some fishing, sightseeing, or to the nearby sacred island to go and see the endangered Spotted-necked Otters!
