Rubondo Island Camp – A New Look
Rubondo Island Camp is made up of only eight waterfront chalets – this means that the Rubondo experience is extremely exclusive, and because of the location of the cottages, the experience is one that is full of adventure and excitement too!
The accommodations at Rubondo Island Camp have just been completely revitalized, and now are more inviting than ever before. Each of the eight chaletsisblended seamlessly into the lush landscape and are shaded by the surrounding indigenous forest. These chalets are surrounded by rolling green lawns that roll further onto the beachy shores of Lake Victoria. Guests can enjoy the sounds of the forest and the view of the world’s second largest lake while relaxing on the verandah.
Have a look at some of the updates we’ve made and get inspired to spend time with us on thelargest island national park in Africa.

Something New – “The Nest”
We have an extremely exciting addition to Rubondo Island Camp, “The Nest” – now you may be wondering, what is this all about? As the name may suggest to you, The Nest is an information centre combining a whole range of information and interesting artefacts that will teach you all about chimpanzees. The name is fitting as each night, chimpanzees will make their way into the trees and build their nest for the night.This is a ritual they take part in each and every night, moving to a new spot and making a new nest for the night – which is why we have our Chimpanzee Trackers who head out early each morning in search of where the chimps will be for the day. You can get to know one of our trackers, Simon, a little bit better and what it is him and his fellow trackers do in this blog post.
