We stayed here for two nights in April in a private bungalow. We arrived and reserved our bungalow on the day, which was probably only possible during the rainy season (it wasn't raining at all during our stay) since there are significantly lower numbers of travelers. There was plenty of parking in the grounds, but again this might be different... More

Fantastic place! Stayed here regularly as a hoilday break as a volunteer over a year, and each time has been great! Bar staff are very friendly, kind and hospitable. Food is also very good, highly recommend the bacon and egg toastie! Prices are very reasonable, and if you are living on very tight budget (like us) there is a rolex... More

My friends and I are 20 somethings living in East Africa and came to Nile River Camp for an inexpensive spring break getaway. It was lovely! Great food, comfortable beds, decent bathrooms/showers, pool, safe area, AND a rope swing into the Nile River which was definitely our favorite part! I highly recommend this place!

Very well organized and fun place to stay, tented accommodation is very affordable and dorm rooms are great too. Food is cheap and very well prepared. Beers are cold and everything is kept clean by great staff. Well worth the visit for a break from Kampala or just a backpackers stay.

Amazing place. Incredible staff, great food, warm showers, cheap but clean accommodation (if fact the beds are extremely comfy), cold beers and an all round lovely vibe, The two managers are wonderful, always willing to go the extra mile and cook up an amazing BBQ on request. This is my favourite place for a weekend get away with friends. Oh... More

There's so much to do during the day, wether it be white water rafting or the famous flying fox and at night every night can be a party but there's always room for quiet when you want. Definitely the highlight of my trip to Uganda, with a brilliant new manager and the best burgers in Jinja. This place is definitely... More

We camped two nights at the Nile River camp when we did our whitewater rafting with Nalubale on the Nile river at the end of February. Nile River camp is nicely located outside town (quiet), has a beautiful view over the River from the bar/restaurant area. The facilities for the campers were good (very clean shared toilets and showers with... More

I stayed in the dorm for a night since I was doing rafting the next day. The place is pretty awesome - very friendly and helpful staff, clean, lots of things to do and good food! I happened to chat with Bingo (one of the owners) and Anton ( the manager) over a game of cricket and they were extremely... More

Normally I like budget spots, and enjoy the young people I meet in hostel style accommodations. Perhaps it was just that night. But the experience I had this particular night was just awful. From the exceptionally rude people I met to the unbelievably bad fruit (who in the world can mess up fruit??? These guys did- what they did was... More

There are lots of activities you can engage in. I did enjoy the rope swing into the Nile and hikes in the near by villages. The bar is perfectly located with a great view and good food. In addition they have great accommodation and friendly staff.
