About This Accommodation

Rubondo Island Camp, in the southwest corner of Lake Victoria, is a unique wilderness experience and perfect for travelers seeking an off-the-beaten path destination to add to their safari. The waters of Lake Victoria teem with hippo, crocodile and Nile perch.The island’s indigenous rainforest is home to plentiful birdlife, a herd of island elephants and even chimpanzees (chimp sightings are not a guarantee as they might be at Greystoke Mahale or in Kibale).

The camp is the only property on Rubondo Island, offering a truly exclusive experience to guests of eight lakefront, ecofriendly chalets. Days on Rubondo Island are filled with bush walks, visits to local villages, catch-and-release fishing, treehouse sleepouts or just relaxing by the pool. While Rudondo is definitely not a classic, big-five safari destination the peaceful setting and the variety of activities will make your time on Rubundo a welcome break from days spent on game-drives.
