We spent 4 nights at Rubondo at the start of a 2 week Tanzanian visit. The heavily forested national park of Rubondo was a totally different experience to the subsequent tours of Serengeti and Ngongogoro. Being a small resort, we were treated exceptionally well by Henk and Janine and their staff; the food and service were excellent. We spent two days on boat excursions on Lake Victoria, the first to see the plentiful bird life, crocodiles and hippos ad the second to fish for Nile perch (6 fish caught with the largest about 45kgs:three were returned to the water and the others cooked by the chef at camp). We spent a third day in 4WD looking for wildlife which is not as plentiful as Serengeti but the jungle experience was very interesting and the bird life is good. Overall, an excellent visit in good facilities which I would recommend to other travellers.
