Domwe Island provides visitors with a one-of-a-kind combination of island and African bush environments. Domwe is the largest island in Lake Malawi, with an 11- kilometre circumference and a peak 400 meters above sea level. It is separated from the mainland by the narrow Ilala Gap, which has been dry on several occasions because of changes in lake level over millennia. As a result, unlike other Lake Malawi islands, Domwe Island is densely populated with mammals that have crossed over during the dry season.
Domwe Island Adventure Camp is simple but unique. It is located on the west side of the island, behind a small beach. The camp is self-catered, with guests using the kitchen facilities to prepare their own meals. The kitchen is staffed by two full-time employees and is fully stocked with refrigerators, pots and pans, crockery, and cutlery. There are three fully furnished safari tents and two tent sites, as well as a dining area with a bar and a water sport gazebo.
