Itinerary
Detailed itinerary
Day 1: 
Mwanza city | Rubondo Island National Park.

Rubondo Island camp exudes an atmosphere of serene tran- quillity. Set on an island in the middle of the world’s second largest freshwater lake, its manicured velvet lawns stretch to the water’s edge and its exotic trees are a haven for birds— 369 species of them  including African Fish Eagle! With renowned hospitality, delightful hosts and indulgent accommo- dations, Rubondo is divine. Romance resides in breathtaking sunsets over the lake, moonlit dinners on the jetty and can- dlelit champagne along the shore of Lake Victoria. Get settled in your waterfront chalet, beds dramatically draped in sheer white netting, offer splendid views from verandas facing the sweep of the lawn to the lake beyond.
