      Hi Phillip, do you happen to have contact details for the Mufasa Rustic Backpacker Camp? Having trouble tracking them down and their old website has expired.

    A special thanks to the Bradt guide and the guests that came to experience the magic of Mufasa Monkey Bay. I fell in love with Angona Bay (better known as Mufasa Monkey Bay) when I was between 8 and 10 years old. I love it more everyday. I will be in Monkey Bay full time as from 1 September 2014 to welcome every one that wants to share the serenity that only Angona Bay can give you. Katrin Schoepse is my best friend and I am working towards having her back in Monkey Bay. Please help me to achieve that.

    I was on my way to stay at Mufasa’s in Feb 2015 this year, but couldn’t get there due to the bridge from Cuamba side being down because of floods. I’d heard about the place from friends staying with us in Pemba Bush Camp over New Year, and it sounded like a place I’d love to have stayed for a while. Is it still open and is Riki still running it?

    Till later I hope!
