Rubondo Island Camp is the only camp on the 250km2 Rubondo Island – one of the biggest islands in Tanzania's vast Lake Victoria. The lodge sits on the sandy lakeshore, backed by dense forest. With some interesting wildlife on the island, including a troop of chimpanzees, and very good birding, it aims to be halfway between a safari camp and a beach retreat.

Our view of Rubondo Island Camp

Rubondo Island Camp is not the place for those seeking big game, guaranteed sightings of chimps, or back-to-back activities. However, it's wild, remote, off the beaten track and a truly lovely camp to relax and spend time just enjoying nature, with a flexible schedule. You can explore by boat and on foot, as well as by vehicle, and we think it would be a perfect last stop after a busy safari – or possibly a more nature-oriented alternative to Zanzibar. At times it felt a little unorganised but for the relaxed traveller, perhaps already familiar with the usual spots in East Africa, it has a lot to offer.
