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.
