Reviews of Rubondo Island Camp
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
What a beautiful island! Forest walks with the chimpanzee researcher and trackers were fascinating - we got to learn all about their habits, nests, diet etc and my daughter actually saw chimps on a later walk she did but which I - sadly - didn't attend! It's not easy to spot them but Rubondo isn't just about the chimps - it has great birdlife and fishing (not our scene, but others would love it) and other wildlife too - we particularly loved Bella, the resident bushbuck.
In terms of the activities and facilities, it's a bit difficult to comment because we went before the camp was officially open and it wasn't completely finished (we did know this beforehand), so the swimming pool and reception area were still incomplete. However, the lounge and bar/dining area had stunning views across Lake Victoria and were extremely relaxing, the food was superb and the rooms well-equipped and beautifully located.
Some of the roads were also inaccessible (meaning we couldn't get to the area where the giraffes frequent) but were being repaired in time for the opening in June. Our grades therefore relate to the activities and facilities which were up and running at the time of our stay.
