Rubondo

Kitulo
Kitulo, which recently has become a fully protected National Park, is situated on the Kitulo Plateau, which forms part of Tanzania’s Southern Highlands. It is understood that the area, which is known locally as the “Garden of God,” provides a home to a wide variety of wildflowers such as balsams, bellflowers, honey-peas, irises, lilies and orchids.

Rubondo Island

Located on the south-west shores of Lake Victoria, Rubondo Island National Park includes Rubondo Island and several other small islands of Lake Victoria. The park boasts for its rich and diverse variety of butterflies and bird life, easily viewable from the lake shore. The rare Sitatunga, an extremely endangered amphibious antelope, can sometimes be viewed escaping from the charging predators by hiding and camouflaging itself in the lake shore marshes.

A visit to Rubondo Island National Park offers visitors a break from game viewing in the tranquil peace of a lake shore setting. Exploring the islands within the park creates an excitement for day trips. Fishing expeditions into Lake Victoria are easily arranged through the major lodges. Rubondo Island National Park is a relaxation from the rigorous safari circuit and a relaxing place from which to explore Lake Victoria.
