Rubondo Island Camp
Rubondo Island Camp is situated on Rubondo Island which lies in the southwest corner of the famous Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa.
A small contingent of park rangers, chimp researchers and the Rubondo Camp staff are the only inhabitants of the island.
Speciality aspects on the island are chimp talks by researchers, wellness weeks, and Yoga retreats. The camp also provides an extensive library covering a large variety of subjects.
Activities include hiking through the habitat of wild chimpanzees, tracking the endemic sitatunga antelope, walking safaris, game drives and boat trips viewing the lush forest and extensive variety of wildlife, as well as boat trips to nearby Croc and Bird Island.
You can also try your hand at game fishing for the legendary Nile perch (The largest fish ever caught on the island weighed 105kg!).
Pristine forest is the habitat of such rare creatures as wild chimpanzee, introduced onto the island in the 1960′s to benefit from its remote, protected habitat.
Elephant and giraffe are dwarfed by ancient trees in the shadow of which lurk bushbuck and genet. Vervet monkeys cavort amid the leaves, and toward the lakeshore the elusive sitatunga antelope hides in papyrus swamp.
Crocodile lie in wait along the shore and hippo crash through the shallows. Otters, frogs and butterflies are some of the other species of wildlife found on the island.
The birdlife alone, comprising over 200 species, is enough to get the most discerning birder twitching. This is virgin paradise; uninhabited for decades.
