Holland Park
Ranked #7 of 30 Specialty Lodging in Jinja
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The cottage that we stayed in was beautiful, and the view was too. Staying here was like staying in Dr Doolitle's garden, we had monkeys (2 species) hundreds of birds and even some very friendly dogs for company. The view of the Nile is mesmorising, especially at sunrise (from 6.45 onwards). The owners are very welcoming and helpful too

Holland Park is the perfect venue for relaxation in the peaceful, heavenly backdrop of Lake Victoria, whilst staying in keeping with the natural beauty of Jinja.

The cottages - seemingly rising from the shallow rolling hills - are a great place to get back in touch with nature, with all the creature comforts of home. The owners have paid meticulous attention to detail in putting together the spacious cottages; I strongly suggest you try them out yourselves ;)

If I was to pick one of the many qualities of Holland Park, it would be the unobstructed view of the Nile. A short walk from your terrace takes you to the banks, or simply take it in from a few metres away as you take a stroll through the expansive grounds.

The atmosphere of this place is simply amazing. Total privacy, amazing view over the Nile and fantastic hosts.
We have stayed in a luxury tent with a mind-blowing view over the Nile. Staying at Holland Park you will simply forget about everything: the calmth and beauty of this place will catch you and all you feel is relaxation.
Tip: We went for a bird-watching trip with Wim, which was really great: touring the Nile with a motor boat and watching the amazing beauty of the surrounding nature.

Room Tip: .All of them are great, we have stayed in the large luxury tent which was extremely special. The vie...

I recently stayed at Holland Park for the third time (this time in the safari tent) and every one of my visits have been perfect. Holland Park is still the best place in Jinja to relax by the Nile - so peaceful and serene that every time I come here I don't want to leave!

I have now stayed in both a cottage and the safari tent, and both options offer a comfortable stay and fantastic night's sleep. The view from the tent is amazing and is very private - a slightly cheaper option than the cottages but only really suitable for a couple, whereas the cottages can sleep up to 4 or 5.

My favourite things about Holland Park is that all the accommodation is eco-friendly on solar power, and also very private. The owners have not over-crowded the plot with many cottages or safari tents, and so you feel like the wonderful view of the Nile is your own.

Just back from a wonderful night at Holland Park. We had a wonderful time and didn't want to leave. As everyone says below the view is excellent and the owners, Wim and Monique, are perfect hosts. The dogs are friendly too.

We were three- my husband and a friend. The place had plenty of room for the three of us. We bought a fish from Jinja and barbequed it there.The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, cutlery and so on. We would have liked to have better knives, but apart from that, we found everything we needed.

There are games in the house too and we spent a wonderful evening playing scrabble on the veranda.

We hope to go back again soon!

Holland Park is THE spot in Jinja if you're looking for an affordable, relaxing, and top-notch experience on the Nile. The view over the river is magnificent, and the cabins, for the price, are luxurious. The beds are the most comfortable beds I found during my time in Africa, since they are from Europe, and the shower has hot water and pressure for hours. Stay here if you're looking to relax and really enjoy yourself in Jinja.

Room Tip: All the cabins are great!
