Went here for lunch with friends. The view was excellent of the Nile river with rapids nearby. We all had a good relaxing lunch. They have a set 3 course menu for meals and you have to prebook-there is a good choice on each part of the meal. The tilapia fish was excellent. The location is 30 minutes from Jinja...

We used to camp at the Haven as a convenient escape from Kampala. The food at the restaurant is very good, so we often avoided bringing our own food.

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.

Peace, wonderful view, monkeys and birds, great food, warm hospitality. Bucket list kind of stay. We had visited the restaurant a couple of years ago and promised each other that we would come back and spend some time. We stayed after a two week business trip in the countryside and needed a rest. Met interesting travelers and ate overlooking the...

THE Haven is situaties at THE first rapids THE rafting boats passes. You have a wonderful view on THE Nile. Service is very friendly and THE staf does everything to make you comfortable. We needed a rest and descided to stay for 7 days! There is only THE sound of THE water and THE birds, no disturbing sounds of music....

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.
