Visit Rubondo Island:
Rubondo Island National Park is located on the south-west coasts of Lake Victoria and comprises Rubondo Island as well as numerous other tiny islands. The park is known for its large and diversified collection of butterflies and birds, which may be seen from the lakeshore. The rare Sitatunga, a critically endangered amphibious antelope, can sometimes be seen hiding and camouflaging itself in the lake side marshes to avoid charging predators.
Visitors to Rubondo Island National Park can take a break from game viewing and relax on the shores of a lake. Day trips are made more exciting by exploring the park's islands. The major lodges can readily organise fishing outings into Lake Victoria.
Rubondo Island National Park is a welcome respite from the arduous safari circuit and a tranquil base for exploring Lake Victoria.
Visit Saanane Island:
Since July 2013, Saanane Island has been a fully fledged National Park, encompassing an area of 2.18 sq km and consisting of three islets and an aquatic environment. The islets are located on the main island's southern coast.
The park set a record for being the first National Park in the world to be located within a city, as well as the smallest National Park in Tanzania and East Africa. Impala, Rock Hyrax, Velvet Monkeys, and Wild Cats are among the species that call the park home. The presence of the "De-brazas Monkey" highlights its potential as the country's only park with the species. Crocodiles, Monitor Lizards, Agama Lizards, Pancake and Leopard Tortoises, and Snakes, particularly Pythons, are also common.
The Park's aquatic area is home to a variety of fish species, primarily Tilapia and Nile Perch.
