Rubondo Island Camp

A pristine forested island camp surrounded by nature

Situated on a remote island sanctuary on Lake Victoria

A unique island wilderness for those seeking the thrill of adventure and something just a bit different.

Rubondo Island Camp is the only camp on this verdant island, the largest island national park in Africa offering guests the thrill of adventure in a truly wild area, all but untouched by man. From its lakefront location to the eco-friendly design of the eight fabulous cottages, the camp offers unrivaled access to this one-of-a-kind destination, where elephants roam wild, colorful birds and butterflies flit through the indigenous rainforest and the waters teem with hippo, crocodile and the iconic Nile perch.

What sets the island apart is the opportunity to be part of a unique chimpanzee habituation experience. This involves hiking with a guide to track the chimpanzees, fly-camping overnight near to where they are and viewing them in their natural habitat as they go about their routines. The island is a birder's heaven with an incredible variety of species in the sub-tropical rainforest. Guests can enjoy the expert knowledge from the highly skilled guides on nature walks, boating trips and wetland excursions. Why not have a go at fishing for the famous Nile perch, which can grow to record sizes in the lake.

Access is by light aircraft with Coastal Aviation and connects to Arusha in northern Tanzania and the Serengeti so can easily be added onto a Serengeti safari holiday. There are also flights to Kigali In Rwanda so the camp can also be combined with a Rwanda safari.
