Rubondo Island Camp (Lake Victoria)

Rubondo Island Camp is situated on Rubondo Island, in the southwest of Lake Victoria. This 240kmĀ² island provides an unforgettable experience for visitors to Tanzania, combining the breathtaking natural beauty of a forest refuge with the relaxing tranquillity of sandy lakeshore beaches.

NUMBER OF ROOMS & DESCRIPTION:
The camp operates 10 bandas (luxury tents). Each of the ten units overlooks the lake, a view which may be enjoyed from the seclusion of a private terrace and just a few yards from the sandy lakeshore. The comfortable large tents have windows on all sides and, instead of the common zips, an entrance door. A spacious en suite bath- and dressing room has been constructed for each banda. Great care has been taken to use local natural building materials.

RESTAURANTS & BAR:
An outcrop of rocks amidst scattered trees provides the perfect setting for the restaurant and bar, offering a splendid view of the lake and bay. A swimming pool is located conveniently close to the bar, among the palm trees.

OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES:
Activities available on the island (and may be subject to an extra charge) include forest walks, boat excursions, bird watching and fishing. Fishing is extremely popular and fees are payable locally to park authorities. For those guests who wish to remain in the camp, a small library provides several games for your enjoyment.
