A GREAT idea for Jinja

WILD WATERS LODGE sounds phenomenal--on an island in the Nile , near Jinja. But its accommodation tariff is beyond my budget.

However here 's anotehr way to combine time there, witha jet boat trip on the Nile. It is $135 per person. (less for kids)

Do i have an ulterior motive for sharing this info? (-: Yes!! They only go with a minimum of four people, and I am traveling alone!!

Scan down to bottom of page for "Special"


and here's a letter from WW:

We are delighted to answer your queries as follows.

The departure point will be the Adrift camp site (Riverbase) in Jinja between 9.00am and 10.00am for the morning trip and 12.30pm and 1.00pm for the afternoon trip.

The trip can only take place with a minimum of 4 people.

The morning trip normally starts between 11.00am and 11.30am so the lunch is after the trip and afternoon trip between 2.00pm and2.30pm so lunch can be before the trip.

You can book with us by email or you may call 0776 286 433 (Gavin) or 0772 286 433 (Ruth).

Payments can be made at Wildwaters lodge or at the Adrift Campsite (Riverbase) in Jinja.

Thanks, Ugandasafaris

I just rec'd confirmation email from WW for my date in July. I hope there is the minimum number of people so the boat can go.

Either way, i'm looking forward to a delicious lunch on a little island overlooking Nile rapids.
