Wings Over Lake Victoria (5 Days)
Tanzania, truly, is a safari destination without peer thousands upon thousands of wildebeest that march in mindless unison on the annual migration through the Serengeti, a pride of well-fed lions sunbathing on the grassy plains and Rubondo Island tucked into the corner of Lake Victoria with deserted sandy beeches nestled against a clock of virgin forest.

Rubondo Island N/P Flycatcher Luxury Tented Camp (FB)
Day3 &4. After breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip for a flight to Rubondo Islands-Lake Victoria. Upon arrival you will be received and transferred to the luxury tented camp. Rubondo Island is tucked in the southwest corner of Lake Victoria, the world's second-largest lake, an inland sea sprawling between Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. With nine smaller islands under its wing, Rubondo protects precious fish breeding grounds. Tasty tilapia form the staple diet of the yellow-spotted otters that frolic in the island’s rocky coves,
while rapacious Nile perch, some weighing more than 100kg, tempt recreational game fishermen seeking world record catches. Rubondo is more than a water wonderland. Deserted sandy beaches nestle against a cloak of virgin forest, where dappled bushbuck move fleet yet silent through a maze of tamarinds, wild palms, and sycamore figs strung with a cage of trailing taproots.
The shaggy-coated aquatic sitatunga, elsewhere the most elusive of antelopes, is remarkably easily observed, not only in the papyrus swamps it normally inhabits, but also in the forest interior.
