Why Rubondo Island National Park?

Tanzania’s Rubondo National Park is located on an island in the southern portion of Lake Victoria – the second largest freshwater lake in the world - & borders 3 countries: Kenya, Tanzania & Uganda.

Experience Despite Lake Victoria’s massive surface area of just under 70,000 square km, it is quite shallow & has little wildlife compared to other parts of Tanzania.

Rubondo Island National Park is the only reason travellers visit this area. The forested island is home to a variety of big game, including chimpanzee, elephant & giraffe as well as an impressive bird list of around 400 species.

Activities Nature enthusiasts can enjoy the peace & tranquillity of lake life & also choose from a variety of forest activities, including chimpanzee trekking safaris, game drives & forest walks where the emphasis is on smaller animals & birds.

Guests can also try catch-&-release fishing on Lake Victoria. Exciting overnight fly-camping expeditions are usually a highlight for the more adventurous traveller.

When To Travel The best time to visit is during the cooler, dry season from June to October. As a tropical island, it may rain on Rubondo on any given day.

Note that Rubondo Island Camp is the only camp in the wild & virtually uninhabited national park & is closed throughout the long rains in April & May.
