There’s time for a final morning game drive and lunch in camp before you fly out to Rubondo Island on Lake Victoria in the mid-afternoon. A guide will drive you through the dense tropical forest to the camp, which will be your base for this final stage of your safari. Settle in to Rubondo Island Camp for three nights. Rubondo Island Camp is the only lodge on Rubondo Island, the largest island national park in Africa. Tropical forests provide a protected habitat for wildlife that includes sitatunga, elephant, giraffe, 200 species of birds and wild chimpanzees. The deep waters of Lake Victoria also offer spectacular fishing for record-breaking Nile perch.
Activities from camp are focused around discovering and enjoying the remarkable ecosystem of the island. An astonishing array of birds and wildlife waits to be discovered and highly trained guides lead game excursions deep into the forest. Activities aren’t restricted to dry land either: canoe, kayak and boat trips and fishing excursions making for a memorable way to experience the island.
You’ll also get the chance for the Chimpanzee Habituation Experience. The 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 habituation process.
