Yes, what a fabulous place to finish our week long trip to Uganda! Literally perched up on the banks of the Nile in lush green bush with monkeys leaping from tree to tree and frequently on to our roof! We stayed in a gorgeous Banda-tent with a double and single bed and lovely bathroom, perfect for our needs. The view was out of this world! The swimming pool was nice and refreshing and dining at the famous Black Lantern was a treat. Short wander to the backpackers next door for kayaking. But the best part had to be sitting with a sundowner back at our Banda watching the sunset over the Nile. Absolutely recommended!!

I visited this lodge 4 years ago and found it good but on revisiting just before Easter it has changed to unacceptable rooms in bad condition. My room had a huge crack down the wall behind the bed, some of the lights didn’t work, there was a frog in my shower and a worm and to cap it all when looking at the pillows inside the pillow cases they were absolutely filthy as was the duvet which even the manager said was serious. The setting on the Nile is beautiful so it’s such a pity that the lodge rooms are so poor. There is a good restaurant and a swimming pool but this doesn’t make up for sleeping in filthy bedclothes and I will never visit the hotel again sadly.

We absolutely adored our stay at The Nile Porch. If you're looking for a private stay with luscious surroundings then you have found the place! Nile Porch has the best swimming pool in the area and unbeatable Nile views. Saleem, the awesome director, and the staff will bend over backwards to ensure you have a comfortable stay. The rooms are clean with a lovely rustic yet modern feel, with very comfortable beds. Not forgetting about the black lantern restaurant, where the food is simply delicious! 100% recommend, you won't be disappointed!

Nile Porch in Bujagali is one of my favorite places in all of Uganda ! Overlooking the Nile River, we stayed in one of their bandas . We loved the serene and quiet atmosphere, relaxed in their pool and watched some of the most amazing sunsets In Africa . Their restaurant Black Lantern is also a bonus with amazing food and amazing breakfast . Really hope to be back some day . Thank you for a wonderful stay !

My wife, daughter and I stayed at Nile River Porch. We stayed in tent 7. It had an unobstructed view od the Nile. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The people at the NRP are what make it special. Salleem, the Director, was very hospitable and made sure we were very comfortable. The wait staff, Katie, Judith and Beatrice made us feel welcome every meal. The food and drinks are very good. Dont miss out in the sunset cruise down the Nile. Stunning. We look forward to our next stay. Cooper, Kate and Doug
