Location

Rubondo island lies in the southwest corner of the famous Lake Victoria, the second largest lake in the world. The park comprises Rubondo and eleven smaller islands covering 457 sq km. The main island is 26 km long and ranges from 3 km to 10 km in width with 80% of its surface covered by pristine, untouched forest.

A small contingent of park rangers, chimp researchers and our camp staff are the only inhabitants of the island.

Rubondo Island has a landing strip that can accommodate light aircraft.

For those on a self drive trip they can drive to Muganza or Nkome and take a boat from there. The recommended time for travel is morning or late evening.

Boat From Muganza: 

  • ASILIA or TANAPA speed boat to Rubondo Island (30 minutes).
  •  TANAPA boat US$ 100 (return)
