We arrived at the Haven on our first night of a three week tour of Uganda . We had left Entebbe late after Kenya airways had lost our luggage for 6 hours and arrived after dark in the rain exhausted after our flight from the UK. We had planned on camping but the staff at the Haven took pity on us and allowed us to sleep in one of their bandas for the same price as camping. What a spectacular surprise we had in the morning .The Banda looks out over the most stunning view of the Nile rapids . We moved on the next day but agreed to return to the Haven for our last 2 nights in Uganda which included New year.
The Haven gets just about everything right. The location is stunning ,the facilities for camping and the bandas are first rate . This is the only camp site we found in Uganda that had hot water in the showers . The general atmosphere of the place is very relaxed similar to a well worn pub in England complete with pool table and TV. The food is not brilliant but it is good for Uganda and is served beautifully by the staff. New Year's Eve celebration was great fun ,the staff were very amusing as the evening wore on and they let their hair down!
The new swimming pool looks great and will be a further asset.
A very enjoyable stay and a great end to a wonderful Holliday .
