Rubondo Island Camp is the only lodge on Rubondo Island, offering guests an exclusive opportunity to stay within the largest island national park in Africa. Rubondo’s eight luxury chalets are positioned along the shores of Lake Victoria, where guests can admire the sweeping views of the tranquil water and lush surrounding forests from the moment they awaken, until the sun slips away at dusk. Rubondo Island is home to a crucial chimpanzee rehabilitation project which was launched in the 1960s. Guests are able to get involved in this unique project and learn about its history, as well as embark on treks into the vast forests and see the resident chimpanzees for themselves. Rubondo Island is largely covered in pristine greenery, with three-quarters of the island covered in forest. This provides an excellent habitat for the many exotic birds (including egrets, cormorants, pied kingfishers, grey parrots, and African darters) and butterflies who rest within the trees. Guests may also encounter wild elephants on land, or lounging hippos and crocodiles in the lake’s waters. This private and remote camp offers an incredible chance to encounter all kinds of creatures in a peaceful and unspoilt setting.
