A Tropical Paradise In Tanzania

This was my favorite resort in our trip to Tanzania. We stayed in some rougher spots and more luxurious but Rubondo Island Camp was a perfect blend of luxury and a traditional bush camp. The service was amazing! The hikes in the jungle gave me a new appreciation for Tanzania that was unknown to me before, that of the little creatures. So many butterflies, little critters that are amazing to interact with. The food was AMAZING, the chef is intense but in a comical way and really added to charm of this little paradise. My wife and I wish we would have scheduled more time at Rubondo Island Camp. We will definitely return for a longer trip...definitely!

Safari with a twist!

The team at Rubondo Island Camp epitomised for us our experience of 2 other Asilia camps on the same trip, Charming, attentive and providing hospitality to a high standard.
Rubondo is however different to other safari lodges as you have the opportunity to walk through the forests and beaches to get up close to the local wildlife. The hippos snort and the elephants grumble at you - but keep their distance, leaving you to explore the small creatures and the amazing variety of birds.
No doubt that our highlight was fishing for Nile Perch with Henk as our guide and keeping just one of the catch - for dinner!"

Excellent in Every Way!

I have been many times to Rubondo Island in the last 30 years and never has it had such a charming, comfortable, luxurious and all round great place. You feel completely exclusive and the Hosts and staff are fantastic. We stayed only 3 nights and would have wished to stay many more and were sad to leave.
Thanks so much for a perfect weekend!!! Thanks to Janine, Henk and all the staff!"

Perfect place, wonderful service, unforgettable experiences

Driving around with the camp's safari vehicle is perfect for discovering the local fauna and flora, including giraffes, elephants, and some of the rarest antilopes in the world. Adventurers can track Elephant on walking safaris led by the camps experienced safari guides (special thanks to Hamza, our guide). Or why not go fishing in lake Victoria with Henk, the camp's manager, who has been a professional sports fisher for more than 15 years? The fish you will catch will be deliciously prepared by the camp's chef, who did an excellent job preparing delightful meals everyday. My personal favorite is his basil/lime sorbet, absolutely wonderful!"

Island Adventure!

This place is begging to be explored, by boat, canoe and on foot. Birding is excellent and you will be surprised around every corner in the forest with birds and birdsong that you have never seen or heard before. The forest and giant trees are beautifull and the light early morning and late afternoon makes for a photographer's paradise - filtering through the high forest canopy, lighting up butterflies and all kinds of strange insects. The forests are home to chimpanzees and elephants, and during our walking outing we saw many signs of elephants, apparantly much bigger in size than the mainland counterparts! Hippos, otters and huge crocodiles are all around, fish eagles calling everywhere."
