Opening on December 15th 2012, Rubondo Island Camp will be the only camp on Rubondo Island in Lake Victoria, Tanzania and it will be the largest Island National Park in Africa.
With forest eco-systems increasingly scarce in equatorial Africa and across the world, Asilia will work with Tanzania National Parks and other partners to develop Rubondo Island into a lasting conservation area – protecting wildlife and habitat, and contributing to the economic development of the region.
The small and exclusive camp is being constructed using local materials to blend in with the island’s natural vegetation. The eight luxury cottages will sit in the shade of the forest canopy near the lake shore. Three cottages will be ready for the ‘soft opening’ in December 2012 to stand alongside the five luxury tents under thatch. During the camp closure in April and May the tents will be replaced by larger cottages and the camp will be completely ready by June 2013.
