Review: Mucumbli Eco-Lodge in Sao Tome

Your relaxing break awaits at Mucumbli in Sao Tome and Príncipe.

A breathtaking ecological lodge comprised of just six wooden chalets, Mucumbli provides a haven for those seeking rest and relaxation in Sao Tome.  Located on the northern coast  and overlooking spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, visitors of Mucumbli are only a short walk away from stunning black sand and all that this destination encompasses.

This island is home to stunning scenery with striking rock and coral formations, rainforests and beaches filling every view on the relaxing yet breathtaking island.  The Ôbo Natural Park, a biodiverse jungle preserve, covers much of the island and is distinguished by Pico Cão Grande, a skyscraper like volcanic rock. With access to the equator at the southern point of the island, Mucumbli provides the perfect backdrop for you to explore the island coast.

Tiziano and Mari Pisoni, the owners of Mucumbli, have been residing on the beautiful the island for over 20 years and add a real zest to the Mucumbli lodge with their authentic italian home cooking served to guests and locals alike.  Tiziano, a cycling enthusiast and founder of the Federation Sao Tome  Cycling Federation, can assist visitors in exploring the beautiful island  by bike, an experience guests are sure to remember.

With hammocks and bamboo loungers nestled among the green gardens for your comfort, the Mucumbli lodge provides a peaceful haven for travelers seeking to explore all that Sao Tome  island has to offer.
