We stumbled across Wildwaters Lodge on recent trip to Uganda. One of the greatest travel finds to date. A few reflections... The location is a living postcard. Simply breathtaking from every view and at every time of the day. We enjoyed French press coffee in the mornings looking out over the roaring Nile, watched monkeys and fish eagles in the trees and dined under the stars along the rapids. The food was outstanding. Fresh, local and beyond expectation. Could not have been more pleased and thanked the Chef in person. As far as activities, you can pick your poison. My wife slept, wrote and read. I went white water rafting on the Nile. Crazy, but so much fun. We both took a guided tour of the local village which was great as well. Beyond all of this, the staff was amazing. Truly amazing. We look forward to returning someday soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- WILD WATERS LODGE is nestled in a luxuriant rainforest on it's own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile and is breathtakingly beautiful. The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite. Softly lit with hand-made furniture, you can relax in comfort on this island paradise listening to the thunder of the Nile rapids, and the calls of the many species of bird who call the island home. ... more less
