Useful Information
  • Guests will be able to seach for animal, bird, insect and plant life, and learn about the forest and its flowers and fauna.
  • The plan is to habituate the chimps, so that proper chimp walks will be possible in the future.
  • Opening up some previously unexplored beautiful areas of Tanzania.
  • Exploring the swamps by vehicle and boat might give guests the chance to spot the elusive sitatunga.

Rubondo Island Camp Game Viewing and Activities

Elephant and giraffe are dwarfed by ancient trees, and wild chimpanzees inhabit the untouched forests. In the shadows lurk bushbuck and genet, and the elusive sitatunga hides in the papyrus swamps. Crocodile lie in wait along the shores and hippo crash through the shallows. Nile Perch in excess of 100 kilograms call these waters home, and over 200 bird species thrive in this rich natural habitat. This is virgin paradise, uninhabited for decades. Rubondo Island offers superb rewards for the adventurous from exploring the pristine forest to water based activities around the island. On land there are guided forest walks on offer, chimpanzee scouting, excellent bird viewing and game drives through the dense forest. Out on the water there are world class fishing opportunities and superb boat-based game viewing possibilities. There are two fishing boats available for half day hire.
