2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Jinja, Eastern Region
This typical African style cottage is overlooking the river Nile and located only a few kilometers from the Source of the Nile. It is 5 km from the second biggest town in Uganda, Jinja which is often called the adventure capital in East Africa. And it is 80 km from the capital city Kampala. <BR>The gardens have at least 75 different types of birds and when you walk down to the river there are great spots for fishing. An ideal place for people who love nature, quiet and "the african feel". The cottage has a back up solar powered in case of power cuts and there is solar powered hot water.<BR><BR>On the same compound is a double self contained room, ideal for families who want to go on a holiday together and still have their own privacy.

A charming little cottage and lovely place to relax on the banks of the nile.
Ingrid the owner lives next door and was very helpful.
If you want absolute solitude then the cottage is not for you as the compound is shared with another cottage. The pool is also shared with a retreat centre next door (that said it was very quiet).
The stairs to the mezzanine, where the 2 single beds are, are steep and not child friendly. If you have very young kids, or older accident prone children this may not be the place for you.
