This new property offers something truly unique in East Africa and a wonderful opportunity to see an unspoilt natural environment in all its beauty.
Rubondo Island Camp, Rubondo Island, Tanzania
Island Camp is the only property on the pristine island of Rubondo in Lake Victoria. Recently renovated and overhauled by Asilia, who own a number of luxurious camps in Tanzania, this is an exciting new property and offers something truly special for the intrepid traveller.
There are currently 13 tents, five of which are simple meru -style tented rooms under a thatched roof and eight new luxury tents which are newly built. The standard tents are older, but are ensuite, and perfectly clean and comfortable and offer a good value option which are available until 31st March when they will be replaced by three new suites. The eight new tents are tastefully designed, and feature a decking area and balcony and are 60 metres from the sandy lake shore. The living and dining area is set on an elevated outcrop of rocks amidst scattered trees, with views over the lake and bay. Nearby is a swimming pool surrounded by a deck, located close to the beach (swimming in the lake is not possible, hence the swimming pool). You can spend your days enjoying a spot of birding, going on guided nature walks and game drives, fishing and boat trips on the lake.
