Tucked in the southwest corner of Lake Victoria, Rubondo Island is the world’s second-largest lake. Rubondo protects precious fish breeding grounds. The shaggy-coated aquatic sitatunga, the most elusive of antelopes, is remarkably easily observed here, not only in the papyrus swamps, but also in the forest interior. Giving this island a close look is well worth it for those looking for a quiet corner of Tanzania.
