The camp provided hot showers, and delicious food for a reasonable price. However, apart from the main restaurant/bar area offers very few places to sit and enjoy the view of the lake. I booked a tent with a view. Unfortunately the first two tents I looked at did not have a view. One tent didn't have working lights--and when I... More

Beautiful spot overlooking the river. Clean bathrooms with hot water. Nice bar with good wifi. Menu is small, but food is good. Friendly staff. We camped with our own tent and felt very welcome to use the amenities, pool, Wi-Fi, bar, etc. Great value!

I was living in Bujagali for 6 months and this place is a FAR better hang out than Nile River Explorers. The bar is just above the rope swing...which is a experience you must have when visiting Bujagali. Dylan and Anton are the best managers of any bar I have come across and really make sure everyone is having a... More

The camp is well set up with a great bar and restaurant. We had a safari tent which was perfect. The only down side was that the toilet block was a little far away. The staff were helpful and there is a lovely sunset over the nile.

The best place for a weekend with friends. Amazing staff making sure that everything is ok constantly, great food, very clean and safe, lovely swimming pool area. Long list of activities that can be arranged. There is nothing better than watching the sunset on one of their Nile tours.

In a spectacular setting over the Nile, with great food, a very well stocked bar and the best staff to be found anywhere. All the facilities required to guarantee an amazing experience: hot water, wifi and even a swimming pool!!

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.
