It's a nice place with good customer service a water slide going up to river Nile. They charge 20000shs for a slide and the dressing room at the slide is very dirty with human wastes. The toilets are so bad not flashed very smelly and going to wash your feet without shoes in them is a nightmare.

I was expecting to see amazing falls but it was more like a rushing lake. I'm used to Niagara Falls, so this was not up to my expectations. I heard that the building of a dam a few years ago is what ruined the falls, too bad!

This is the real highlight of Jinja. I strongly recommend the boat trip. There is no falls due to construction of a dam. The boat area is private land and the entrance fees is UGS10,000 ($US2.50) per person. The 2 hours motorized boat is UGS 120,000 ($US 35) for entire boat and is worth it. The boat can accommodate 10 persons. The ride is very relaxing and we saw lots of birds and a specific lizard that swims in the water. The scenery is magnificent. Very enjoyable two hour boat ride.

Really spectacular .. such a shame they are being raided by the government .. the adventure sports coupled with cultural significance of Bujagali makes these falls a gem in the desert

While growing up, we used to visit this place but ever since the government started the project of building the dam, it is no more. Basing on my young childhood and high school memories. Every person who had never visited, i would recommend for them to visit. But currently there are other alternatives nearby which are not as spectacular as the original Bujagali dam. We miss it soo much.

We visited Bujagali in 2010 before it's conversion to a Lake, and it was an awesome experience. Such a pity it's a pale shadow of it's former self now

Unfortunately, it is like a lake now. However, it is pretty to sit and look at the water. The owners of the land where the falls used to be, are now charging people to go that area. So, I recommend you sit up at NRE bar and restaurant, The Black Lantern Restaurant or River Camp bar and restaurant instead to look at the water or watch a sunset. They all have great views of The Nile.

Bujagali falls near jinja is quite an amazing place..Humbled by the sheer force of nature...you can go kayaking and white water rafting if your are an adventure enthusiast. If u r not then stay at a safe distance as the place is slippery...Lots of greenery around and you can also see a variety in f water birds around.

Thankfully, despite the building of the dam and subsequent drowning of Bujagali Falls and other mighty white water rapids, Bujagali Village is still a hub of activity due to two great camps (Nile River Camp and Nile River Explorers), the rafting they provide, and the presence of Kayak The Nile kayak school. Both camps offer lots of activity on the water with great food, great atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and stunning sunsets. Boat cruises, fishing, sit on top kayaking/ guided tours, mountain biking and walking tours (if water is not your thing) are all very popular, as is the yoga which recently started at River Explorers. Not to mention the slip and slide and the rope swing which are excellent fun. I was disappointed never to have the chance to see the Falls, however I still feel that the village is well worth the visit. Twenty mins from Jinja, which in turn is max 2 hours from Kampala. The falls were located at the end of the village with paid admission through Speke Camp. However there is no need to pay to walk here as it is a waste of time - no falls and nothing to see in Speke Camp. Rating based on satisfaction with village experience.
