I spent about 8 nights, off & on, here, over Christmas & New Year. Stayed in a dorm room all the time. Comfortable, clean, apart from a few animal droppings from the roof. Really clean, well maintained shower & toilet block. Bar area clean, friendly,as were all the staff. Beer prices reasonable, as was food, which was adequate, but not... More

Nile River Camp has much to offer - a variety of accommodation options, great bar with very friendly, helpful staff, delicious food, kayaks to rent, boat trips, a swimming pool and a stunning view of the Nile. Needing to recharge? Then stay over for a few nights - tents and dorms available or bring your own camping gear.

The camp has a gorgeous view of the Nile, set up high, with a swing rope to throw yourself into the river. There is also a pool which is always clean and loungers round the pool. It's set in large grounds which you can wander around in or take a boat ride out onto the Nile. The bar area is... More

We stayed 2 nights in the camping and we couldn´t sleep for this 2 days. The first day was saturday and they did a party in the camping bar. The problem was that they let the music playing in a high volume until 5:00am! The party was over at that time, but everybody was so drunk that they forgot to... More

On the recommendation of friends who told us that NRC was quieter and more sedate than the Nile River Explorers camp next door, we stayed here on a Friday night and again on the Sunday night while visiting friends and taking a couple of tours with Kayak the Nile next door. In general we were impressed with the camp; it's... More

This place was heaven to come back to after spending 3 weeks on project in a rural village just outside jinja! It is westernised but i welcomed that after spending 3 weeks eating rice and beans for 2/3 meals a day. The food was nice and reasonably priced. The views were stunning and the rooms were nice.

Location is wonderful. Sight at the lake from above. The rope swing into the lake is just awesome. Monkeys are around (but not aggressive), a lot of lizards and birds as well. The owner (dylan?) is a nice guy and the campsite is managed very well. Get dinner just outside of the camp: rice&beans for 1500UGx or other local meals... More

Stayed here with three friends for two nights. While it's a bit of a drive from downtown Jina (about 20 minutes and 10,000 UGX for two people on a boda), it's worth it. Very peaceful location, clean accommodations (stayed in one of the dorms, had the entire 6 bed dorm - 3 bunk beds - to ourselves). We did however... More

Our bag was stolen from the bathroom and we suspected some of the staff. That turned out to be true when couple days later the owner called us that our bag was somehow found, but we were already miles away. The place had a bit bigger locks than I've seen commonly in Uganda, and ever present posts that the management... More

Amazing, lively atmosphere of an evening. The staff are always great to chat to. Excellent value for money Good wifi service, a breathtaking view of the Nile and rooms were both clean and spacious. If you have a spare few hours you can rent a kayak or stand up paddle board for your leisure at a reasonable price. Quad bikes... More
