Not my first visit to The Haven although I'm unlikely to return again. The good has always been the Achilles heel of The Haven. Cannot fault the location and the staff as well as the effort that has been made by the proprietor to employ only locals. Rightly so, it's their land. The menu badly needs updating and the restaurant,...

Recently spent 3 wonderful days at The Haven. Stayed in a Bungalow 3 and loved the sound of the rapids that can be heard from that room. Staff was very helpful with arrangements for horseback riding and a massage. Food is plentiful and generally was good. Loved the shower-- great water pressure and consistent hot water were a treat after...

What is there not to love. The view from my bungalow was the Nile River with rushing rapids. It was clean, spacious, very well decorated in a decor that represents the continent. They have used natural resources from the environment. My shower was consistently hot, and my bed so very comfortable. You can choose which kind of accommodation you would...

I could write a very short review by just saying you need to go here, truly a magical place. Even though I took the cheap option of camping ($15). It was still such a pleasure, the combination of nature around you and the pumping rapids filling your ears really puts this place above the rest. Came away feeling completely relaxed....

Went here for lunch with friends. The view was excellent of the Nile river with rapids nearby. We all had a good relaxing lunch. They have a set 3 course menu for meals and you have to prebook-there is a good choice on each part of the meal. The tilapia fish was excellent. The location is 30 minutes from Jinja...

We used to camp at the Haven as a convenient escape from Kampala. The food at the restaurant is very good, so we often avoided bringing our own food. It is a great place to explore and you can walk down to the river via the village. The boat ride is an absolute highlight and the pool is great on...
