Has camping, dorms and safari tents. Dorm beds at $10 per night, safari tents are $45. Great views of the Nile, a pool, bar, firepit and a rope swing into the river. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food can take a very long time so order before you are hungry! 5 min walk away from NRE Camp, which is... More

Great white rafting experience. Beautiful setting over the Nile river. Staff were helpful. Big site with lots of overland trucks. Tends to have party people after white water rafting days, if thats not your scene, maybe avoid. Apart from that, showers and toilets, clean and well maintained. Food good value for money. If you have time, take a walk to... More

Lovely and friendly place to stay with the most amazing views of the Nile River. Both dormitories and tents are good. First ones are great to travel with friends, these are witg bed linnen so there is no need to bring sleeping bag. Tents also with bed linnen and facing the river. They also organize boat trips, fishing and rafting!... More

We stayed here two nights as part of our Nalubale River Rafting trip. We paid for an upgraded safari tent which was overlooking the Nile River. The tent was fine - two twin beds instead of a double - but they pushed the beds together for us. The tent was clean and comfortable. The shared bathrooms were better than I... More

You must eat dinner at the Black Lantern! Relaxing next to the Nile river and watching the sunset makes your stay here a wonderful place to unwind. The staff has been great to tell us fun things to do in the area. Making arrangement was very convenient. This is a repeat visit and will never stay anywhere else in Jinja... More

We camped here for two nights as part of our rafting package with Nalubale. And we could not have asked for more. We had a good tent pitch and we could park the car right next to the tent which meant we did not have to unpack all our stuff. The ablution blocks are great with hot water (something of... More

Ok, so now for constructive feedback. Only having dorm rooms and 54 USD safari tents is a bit of a drag. Some variety would be nice yet still keeping it in the budget travel range. Also, more hooks please...in the dorm, in the toilet, etc! Also, having a power outlet to charge things in the room is helpful. At $12... More

We stayed here the night before we went rafting with Nalubale rafting and it was a great place to stay! We stayed in a dorm room, which was included in the rafting, but the dorm room had 6 beds and since there were 6 of us we had the entire room to ourselves. There is a beautiful little bar area...

Me and my two friends stayed there for one night. We had a dorm room, witch was okay considered the price. The staff were friendly and helped us getting a taxi to town. The food was also okay considered the price. The view was amazing and there was even a pool. Great place for a short stay.
