Pristine forest is the habitat of such rare creatures as wild chimpanzee, introduced here in the 60′s to benefit from its remote, protected habitat. Elephant and giraffe are dwarfed by ancient trees in the shadow of which lurk bushbuck and genet. Vervet monkey cavort amid the leaves and toward the lakeshore, the elusive sitatunga antelope hides in papyrus swamp; crocodile lie in wait along the shore and hippo crash through the shallows. The birdlife alone, comprising over 200 species, is enough to get the most discerning birder twitching. This is virgin paradise; uninhabited for decades. We are the only guests here on Rubondo, the largest island national park in Africa.
