The Nile River Camp is a stunning camp site on the banks of the Nile River overlooking Bujagali Falls. Just 6 kms from Jinja, Uganda with a spectacular view of the Nile, brilliant sunsets and beautiful surroundings, the camp site is second to none in the area. The Nile River Camp has 8 spacious dorms, each with 3 double bunks that come with bedding. Each room has a veranda area overlooking our swimming pool and the bar/restaurant area. There is a massive camping area with designated levelled off sites for those who wish to pitch a tent and have their own space. We have 10 Private Safari style tents available each overlooking the Nile and come either in single, double or twin configurations. Complimentary tea and coffee are served up to 10am for our overnight guests. The toilets and showers are very clean with hot water. Laundry facilities are also available. Our menu is also vegan and vegetarian friendly! In house activities include Grade 5 Rafting, Fishing Trips, Birding Trips, Double Kayak Excursions, Mountain Biking, Rope Swing, SUP, Sunset Cruises, Tubing, Community Projects and Village Walks. You can also book Bungi Jumping, Horse Riding, Quad Biking and Jet Boating with us. For more info, check out our website. Come on over and enjoy the Nile with us!

Really nice place to stay. Lovely staff, amazing view and sunset. We really felt like home. Good place for camping always, with an outside BBQ you can use, and you can use their fridges to keep your stuff cold. Rafting with their friends of Nalubale completes the the stay!

I travelled with my 3 kids aged under 10 and stayed at their recently established cottage (as an airbnb). We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets overlooking the nile. The staff were very friendly and accomodating to our requests. It felt like home away from home. The staff helped us organise for a chef on the days we wanted a home cooked meal. The cottage was definitely value for money - right next to a small stream that drains into the nearby nile - and the sound from that was very relaxing, quiet and private. This was my second holiday in jinja but definitely my best.

I've stayed two different weekends now at Nile River Camp and I have nothing but good things to say. The staff is friendly, the accommodation is affordable, the food is great, and the beer is cold. The Black Lantern next door also provides a wonderful place to use wifi and have a fine dining experience on the River Nile.

Basic but clean accomodation in safari tents and small rooms.You can also camp.Good bar and simple 'pub grub' style menu. Nice pool next to river (popular with monkeys)Hot communal showers.Solar powered so occassionally lights are low. Strong security boxes behind bar. Good base for lots of river and adventure activites. Very friendly helpful manager Dylan. Generally quiet but if you want a party head to Nile River Explorers next door.

Nile river camp is the most welcoming beautiful camp spot I’ve ever stayed at in Uganda. A place that I look forward to returning to every time I return the the area. NRC is a hot spot for tame monkeys, beautiful bird life and breath taking sunsets. The owner Dylan is passionate about making sure everyone has the best possible stay for the best value of Cost! I can’t recommend this place enough!

Right on the water and a very friendly staff. Lots of activities start and end from the hotel. Nice bar, great views and amenities are good. Rooms are mediocre for the price but overall I would recommend it as a backpackers or economy option. River cruise for $45.00 was very expensive for the type of boat so might not consider that but quite enjoyed my stay there. They have a cool water slide and rope swing but it was closed because a crocodile was spotted in the area.

My daughter, granddaughter and I, along with 40 friends stayed here during a humanitarian mission trip. It is a lovely, relaxing place, with good food, and a most excellent view of the Nile River. I love this place.

Can't say enough good things about this place. The view is unbeatable, reasonable prices, good food and the staff is absolutely amazing. Accommodation is very reasonably priced and you can choose to stay in a dorm or the safari tents which really cool, and nothing beats opening your tent to that view. Also very clean and quiet. There's also the choices to go wondering to neighbouring restaurants and bars, it always feels like a family! Dylan and staff run a tight ship and will go out of their way to make sure you're ok and enjoying your stay. I recommend the boat tours that they do and the rope swing!
