Rubondo Island Camp, uniquely located on Rubondo Island, is a real treat if you are dreaming of a luxurious Robinson Crusoe experience. Surrounded by a shady forest canopy, much of this exclusive camp is footsteps from a beautiful sandy lakeshore. The dining and lounge area, which is situated at a higher elevation, offers superb views of Lake Victoria and the bay, whilst the swimming pool and its wooden decks is located close to the beach. Rest your head in one of eight sumptuous suites or thatched chalets. This unusual location brings with it a plethora of variety, whether you wish to go on forest walks, boating, game drives, trekking through wild chimpanzee territory, gain insight from chimpanzee researchers, or simply relax! If you have a panache for angling from a beach, then this is your spot! For any discerning adventure traveler, this is where the wild things are!
Such an opposite of what we had experienced for the previous 3 weeks, but a welcomed change. A topical island hideaway. No dust, no game, no drives - water, boats, fishing..... great!
Arthur was excellent. The staff were also excellent. The food was fine and the drinks good.
