Rubondo Island camp

Asilia Lodges



Rubondo Island Camp is the only lodge on Rubondo Island, the largest island National Park in Africa. Pristine tropical forests provide a protected habitat for wildlife that includes sitatunga, elephant, giraffe, 200 species of bird and wild chimpanzee. The deep waters of Lake Victoria also offer spectacular fishing for Nile Perch of record-breaking size.

Rubondo Island – in the southwest corner of Lake Victoria – is for those seeking the thrill of adventure in a truly wild area, all but untouched by man. The camp – the only lodgings on this verdant island – immerses you in this lush and unspoilt ecosystem.

From its lakefront location to the ecofriendly design of the eight fabulous cottages, the camp offers unrivaled access to this one-of-a-kind destination, where elephant roam wild, colourful birds and butterflies flit through the pristine indigenous rainforest and the waters teem with hippo, crocodile and the iconic Nile perch.
