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.

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. The place reminded... More
