Rubondo Island Camp

Lake Victoria, Tanzania


Stay at Rubondo Island Camp

This 25 000 hectare paradise in the south-western corner of the expansive Lake Victoria is the largest island national park on the continent and is all but untouched by man. Elephants roam wild, families of chimpanzees cascade through the boughs of pristine indigenous forest, and the waters teem with the iconic Nile Perch.

At Rubondo Island Camp the sunlight glinting off Lake Victoria will be your alarm call. Or perhaps a Fish Eagle will rouse you from your slumber, beckoning you to a day of island wilderness adventure. From the lake front location to the eco-friendly design of the eight luxurious cottages, Rubondo Island Camp immerses you in the unique ecosystem of the largest island national park in Africa.

Lush indigenous forest shades the private cottages – each crafted by hand from local materials, to ensure they blend

seamlessly into this unspoiled landscape – while through the trees sits Lake Victoria. A hammock sways in the gentle breeze coming in off the Lake, while the swimming pool vies for your attention. Lace up your boots for island adventure, wander down to the beach, or simply settle into an armchair with binoculars and a bird guide and let the wildlife come to you. At Rubondo, the wilderness is never far away.

The lapping waves will be the ticking clock marking off the passing hours of island life. As the sun dips, barrel-chested hippos emerge to graze on the fringes of camp. As the birds sing, guests gather in the stylish dining area for a taste of Africa and to exchange tales from the day. Moonlight plays on the waters of the Lake as you drift off to sleep. Get some rest; the eagles will be rousing you soon enough.
