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...

Had a great time at the lodge. Ingrid is the General Manager, she is fantastic. Great service, good food and some amazing views from the communal areas! Can recommend it; 2 - 3 days is enough to get the whole experience. I recommend a half day white water rafting - a whole day is too tiring! Great for a couple...

We stayed just one night. A light or two were out of action. I could have tripped and fallen into the river a couple of times clambering around rocks. We were left a bit alone by waiting staff during our meal. The noise is distracting. A little bit of the wooden decking needs more maintenance... And I could strip on...

We had an incredible stay at the Wildwaters Lodge. What an incredible part of the world. We felt so privileged to share in the beauty of Jinja and the Nile. That staff is fantastic and attentive, the accommodations are luxurious, and food delicious. Drinking wine while taking a bubble bath on the porch as the sun sets over the Nile...

When I really need to get away from it all to relax and revitalize, this is the place I turn to. It's a bit of a treck to get to but ultimately worth the effort. The service is a little haphazard at times but the welcome is always warm. I have stayed in a few different rooms, my favourites are...

I have stayed in lots of different places and always try to rate based on expectations but if I could give this place more than 5 I would!

This is once in a life experience, it's heaven on earth. The tranquility on this island rejuvenates every part of your body and clears your mind from all the fast life in the city. Catching a cold Guinness on room 8 balcony while watching the Hypoxia rapids was peak. Everyone should visit this place before they die.

I had been a day visitor to this magical place a couple of times before and always vowed to return for a full weekend. I finally got a chance on the weekend of 5th Aug, it was lovely and relaxing as expected and ever so refreshing and beautiful. Got lots of lovely souvenirs from the gift shop too and 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
