We hosted a 90-guest wedding at the Haven and they are the best hosts we could have asked for. The staff were so nice, the location is stunning, and everyone was accommodating. About 30-35 guests staid at the Haven overnight while others staid at lodges nearby. If you’re considering a destination wedding in Jinja, please do yourself a favor and have it here 😊

If you want a one in a lifetime view, experience, come to the Haven. The Manager is very friendly. The service is top, the food is great, you are even attempted to eat things you have never tried. They organised for us a wild water rafting trip that I dreamed of for a week. Am so grateful and happy to have had this chance. Sophie

Lovely place to stay. Good rooms, good food, excellent service. Great views of birds on the river and plenty of other birds on site. I don’t like being forced to write 200 characters minimum because it stretches my imagination.

It was really beautiful, the food was amazing, shower water was hot and staff were professional and flexible. The sounds from the falls are just so calming and the view of the rapids is BREATHTAKING!!! They have beautiful birds and these orange tailed monkeys that are high up in the trees. The only thing I didn’t like was the bedsheets.. I don’t like the colour brown for bedding and the sheet material was a bit rough. But the mattress was comfortable and the room was alright.

At the end of a Uganda tour we spent the last few days relaxing here. It was pure relaxation in a beautiful place. The bungalows are at a large distance so that you have full privacy. Wonderful view of the Nile. You only hear the rushing water. The name "The Haven" fits perfectly. We loved every minute and hope we can the Haven again.

The Haven is a perfect place with friendly staff, beautifull environment and stylish banda's. The staff is willing to help with the questions you have. Having a diner with the stunning view from the terace is highly recommended. Just like the massage, would definitly recommend that too!

Great place situated along the edge of the Nile, with good views and in a perfect location to watch the rapids. We camped here in our Overlander for 4nights. David (the Manager) was superb throughout, and it shows in how well managed the place is. We stayed longer than initially planned, just because it was so peaceful and relaxing. Its hard to single something out, but everything works together to make it a fantastic place! Comes highly recommended
