The Nile River Camp is a new 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 now 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. 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.

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.
