We stayed here for one night as part of an overground tour. It is perfectly located on the edge of the Nile. We decided to upgrade from a tent to a private cabin (a hostel option is also available). The cabin was large enough with two single bed and a bed side table. It also had two chairs outside. The... More

The tents were ok, and the shower block was reasonably clean with flushing loos and plentiful hot water. Monkeys playing around the campsite provided plenty of entertainment. However, while the location is good for whitewater rafting and bungee jumping, the thump of music into the small hours makes it difficult to get a good night's sleep

We stayed here for two nights. We stayed in the Hair of the Dog room, I t had three level bunk beds. It was kind of cool and then a pain to get up and down. Bring earplugs, according to my friends there was a lot of loud noise at night. I wore earplugs, so I wasn't phased. The wifi... More

Went here with a group of 9 and they were really accommodating - they set us up in a dormitory fit for nine that had all the essentials (beds, mosquito nets, electricity). The bathroom area was kept very clean and there was hot water for the showers, which was always a plus as we were a group of long term... More

If you're rafting in Jinja, this is a great place to stay. They arrange your trip for you and bring you back after your day on the Nile. The bar is fantastic - almost hangs over the edge of the river and it gives you a great view of the bungee if you're watching your mates take a dive. The... More

After only my 3rd day in Uganda, had the pleasure of experiencing first ever bungee. I will never forget the incredible hospitality of the team at Adrift. I strongly recommend this experience. The accommodation was wonderful and the food delicious.

Had the best time staying at Adrift in Jinja. We did white water rafting on the Nile, bungee jumping and a sunset cruise while we were there. We did the canoe in the roof challenge at the bar also! We camped and upgraded to the permanent tents. The facilities at Adrift were great! Always hot showers which was a welcome... More
