We stayed one night at the Wildwaters lodge, and were mesmerized by this place. The location is absolutely breathtaking - sunset, moonrise and sunrise, the landscape changes and the Nile flows loudly around this island.

The Lodge is on an island in the middle of the thundering Victoria Nile rapids. It is accessed by a short boat ride. There are just ten lodges with huge bedrooms, bathrooms and outside decking including a bath. It is about to undergo a major programme of renovation to replace the wooden walkways and upgrade all the furniture and crockery...

Wildwaters was our last destination and truly a jewel of a property! The adventure begins with a canoe ride to the private island. Once at the island you are greeted with the customary juice and wet towel to rid your travel dust welcome. Wood decked trails lead you to the private individualized cabins. The family cabins are two stories with...

Our stay at Wildwaters was the culmination of an amazing honeymoon experience travelling around Uganda. The journey to the hotel certainly makes it feel very exclusive and an adventure - being rowed to the island across the calmer stretches of white water gives a great sense of what your stay will be like! The lodges are incredibly beautiful structures, with...

Wildwaters was our last stop on an amazing two weeks travelling round Uganda. Arriving at the lodge on a rowing boat is certainly different and the lodges are beautiful, large and private with your own terrace with a free standing bath outside. We were in lodge 1 and had awesome views of the rapids. The nightly African stories were a...

The best thing about this place that it is completely photogenic , because the stunning beauty of nature is all around this place. This place is surrounded by at least 8 or more tiny miny waterfalls. Rooms are neat and some of them are even on waterfalls. A complete satisfaction journey. The only issue arise is, being a vegetarian as...

Wildwaters Lodge, located on an island in the middle of the Nile River is everything you want for a quiet relaxing get away. The rooms are beautiful, with large bathrooms, a large comfortable bed, plenty of storage and seating as well. My room had a porch with a victorian tub where you could relax while enjoying the sounds of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
WILD WATERS LODGE is nestled in a luxuriant rainforest on it's own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile and is breathtakingly beautiful. The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite. Softly lit with hand-made furniture, you can relax in comfort on this island paradise listening to the thunder of the Nile rapids, and the calls of the many species of bird who call the island home. ... more   less
