About the Property

Rubondo Island Camp, the sole establishment on Rubondo, Africa's largest island national park, offers a unique sanctuary overlooking Lake Victoria, enveloped by tropical forests and inhabited by chimpanzees, elephants, giraffes, and a diverse avian population. Guests can savor al fresco meals on the main deck with a beachfront view, enjoying the luxury of sandy toes. Leisurely afternoons can be spent in a hammock, equipped with binoculars and a bird guide, or by cooling off in the pool. As the sun sets, witness hippos emerging from the water to graze on the lush camp surroundings.

Food & Drink

The camp offers a delightful array of homemade cuisine, encompassing freshly baked breads, delectable cakes, biscuits, and refreshing sorbets. Breakfast is presented on the deck with a view of the lake, while lunch takes the form of a light buffet (enthusiastic cooks can even participate in a class led by the chef, which doubles as lunch preparation). Guests can unwind with sundowner drinks by the beachside campfire, followed by a communal dinner beneath the starry night sky.

Getting There



The eight waterfront, thatched-roofed cottages, including one designed for larger families, have been meticulously handcrafted using traditional methods and locally sourced materials. These cottages feature lofty ceilings and are adorned in natural hues that echo the serene lake and lush forest. Each cottage is equipped with en suite bathrooms boasting hot running water and modern flushing toilets. A charming terrace in front of every cottage provides an ideal perch for guests to observe the tranquil island life as it unfolds by the lakeside.
