Good location, but when we checked in at 3 pm, the room is still not yet ready. And there is a strange smell in the room. The scenery is beautiful. Imagine you pay usd250 for that, is it worth while. It's location is Very close to the white rafting stating point. The main problem is dinner, it took 50 minutes...

This review is late coming...like 6 years today. I was reviewing my daughter's wedding pictures and The Haven was an important part of her wedding. She was married in Jinga, had a reception for 250 in town. After that reception she invited 40 of us to join her and her new husband for an American/European reception at The Haven. What...

The Haven has it down. Nice, clean, welcoming accommodations, good food, pleasant helpful staff, unparalleled views of the Nile and its impressive "Dead Dutchman" rapids. Great for romance or for family times. It's got the space and privacy to accommodate different kinds of visits.

Very beautiful, fantastic food, brilliant service and amazing management, if you want to relax get away from the urban hullabaloo, heavy Trafic and noisy Taxis this is the place. 2.5 Km of Jinja - Kayunga on the banks of the Nile is the haven.

We stayed at The Haven in a family cottage for one night while visiting the Nile River in Jinja. The cottage was perfect for our family of five adults. It had a great view of the river and was absolutely beautiful. Downstairs was a private bedroom with two twin beds and large bed for two. It also had a living...

We stayed in the bungalows - each isolated with a sense of privacy. Decorated with African charm - a bit rustic (lizards in the bathroom) - but clean and tidy. Food was quite good (excellent breakfast), hot water - fine. And free wifi throughout the hotel (including the rooms. Exceptional views on the Nile. A wonderful spot in the midst...
