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 chalets is blended 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 the largest island national park in Africa.
The Rubondo Island Camp Experience
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.
Rubondo Island is home to a very special group of chimpanzees whose ancestors were brought here in the 1960s as part of an ambitious conservation project, today you can be part of the Chimpanzee Habituation Process. Available for a limited time, this is a unique opportunity to join the habituation team as they accustom the chimps to the presence of humans and witness them up close in the wild.
You’ll find information on the chimpanzees and their unique journey to the Island as well as infographics, books, and even skulls of different primates and chimps to give you an idea of how each differs from the others.
