(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - March 22nd, 2013 - Kayak Africa, based on the shores of Lake Malawi provides a great getaway on the private island camps of Mumbo or Domwe. With water sports facilities and activities such as kayaking trips and scuba diving, these are gems of Malawi. With the rain nearly over the landscape is gorgeously green and the islands of Mumbo and Domwe at their very best.

Mumbo is open, refurbished and is raring to go!
During the rainy month of February, Kayak Africa almost completely closed the camp on Mumbo Island and they spent the time refurbishing and making improvements. Jurie and the carpentry team removed the tents from platforms one and five and built beautiful, big reed, wood and thatch bungalows on the existing decks. Their team have perfected a very local, environmentally sensitive building system, using all locally sourced and sustainable resources; thatching grass, reeds and timber, to create these lovely dwellings.

The Kayak resort now has three reed bungalows and two tents on the small islet (as well as the family tents just off the beach on the main island). The new bungalows are a little more spacious than the tents and feature the same furnishings with the addition of enormous mosquito nets over the beds.

Mumbo Island Chitenje Cushion Covering
As Kayak Africa do every year, they have updated and refreshed all the cushion covers on Mumbo with locally bought and printed cotton chitenje fabrics. In the last week of the year, when the island was almost empty, Billy, the local village tailor, came out on the boat with his beautiful old Singer sewing machine and set up an upholstery workshop in the lounge area of the family tent. Billy toiled away for two full days and reupholstered every cushion on the island. Everything now looks fresh for the New Year!

This year, instead of using the old fabric to make clothes for the local orphans, they have opted to buy a bale of children’s clothes from the charity which imports them. These clothes will be more robust and longer lasting. Kayak Africa has shared the old covers out between their sixty staff members who will use them in their own homes.
