This luxury lodge is set on a six and a half hectare private island in the middle of the Nile River in Jinja, Uganda. Built from locally sourced materials and designed to blend in with the surroundings, Wildwaters Lodge is a romantic, remote paradise with a spectacular rainforest setting looking out across the river and its swirling rapids. It is situated a one and a half hour drive from the capital, Kampala.
This enchanting eco-lodge makes a fabulous spot to relax for a couple of days after a gorilla safari and will appeal to travellers seeking a unique and unforgettable escape in an awe-inspiring setting. Facilities include a restaurant and café, a bar, a pool and a day spa. Children are welcome.
Wildwaters Lodge provides ten spacious and lavishly appointed suites designed for maximum privacy and comfort. Each room features a thatched roof, canvas walls, wooden floors, a king-size canopy bed, a bathroom with pink granite sinks, as well as a private deck with a freestanding bath. Each room is linked to the main building by a delightful wooden walkway.
The cuisine at Wildwaters Lodge is superb. Mouthwatering dishes prepared using local organic produce and fresh fish from the river are served in wonderful open-air setting.
The area is home to an abundance of wildlife including river otters, giant monitor lizards and thousands of birds, and the lodge is a haven for both nature lovers and thrill-seekers.
Activities are aplenty and include guided fishing trips, nature walks, white water rafting, horse riding and jet boat rides. You can visit local communities and Lake Victoria is close by. Or, simply relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings from the comfort of the lodge as you listen to the soothing sounds of the rapids; or take a dip in the inviting natural swimming pool, carved from the pink granite rock, as you admire the views.
