I loved the location high above the Nile and the bar area had great views. The facilities are pretty good. Nice clean showers and bathrooms. It is also nice that you can use the pool at the hotel next door for sch.8000.

This is a well-positioned campsite that boasts "the hottest showers in East Africa" - an unsubstantiated claim! The shower block is VERY communal, with no real privacy available and shower cubicles too small to keep your possessions dry, assuming you find one with any usable hooks. At first, on the men's side of the curtain, none of the 4 taps...

Tents are okay but simply broken things like lights and other equipments will not be replaced when damaged. Offering hot showers, but if fully booked it reaches only half. The air on the whole area smells mostly of excrement. Personal in restaurant unmotivated. For example, other things than ordered will be delivered in reason of unprofessional communication beneath the personal....

We stayed here for one night as part of an overground tour. It is perfectly located on the edge of the Nile. We decided to upgrade from a tent to a private cabin (a hostel option is also available). The cabin was large enough with two single bed and a bed side table. It also had two chairs outside. The...

The tents were ok, and the shower block was reasonably clean with flushing loos and plentiful hot water. Monkeys playing around the campsite provided plenty of entertainment. However, while the location is good for whitewater rafting and bungee jumping, the thump of music into the small hours makes it difficult to get a good night's sleep

We stayed here for two nights. We stayed in the Hair of the Dog room, I t had three level bunk beds. It was kind of cool and then a pain to get up and down. Bring earplugs, according to my friends there was a lot of loud noise at night. I wore earplugs, so I wasn't phased. The wifi...

Went here with a group of 9 and they were really accommodating - they set us up in a dormitory fit for nine that had all the essentials (beds, mosquito nets, electricity). The bathroom area was kept very clean and there was hot water for the showers, which was always a plus as we were a group of long term...

If you're rafting in Jinja, this is a great place to stay. They arrange your trip for you and bring you back after your day on the Nile. The bar is fantastic - almost hangs over the edge of the river and it gives you a great view of the bungee if you're watching your mates take a dive. The...
