As others have mentioned; the chef at this place is a catch. He prepared a terrific goat-stew and an even better fish-dish on the fly (it took a few hours but still impressive as it was low season and we had not booked our stay upfront... and some remarkable scrambled eggs on homemade (multigrain) bread for breakfast. So simple and SO good....more value for money than most places I´ve visited in rural Uganda. Also: The view and the ambience at the terrace is superb and staff is both hard working and nice. If there is a decent supply ( more than 2 min..) of hot water next time I visit this site will definitely earn my top rating on TA.
FYI:despite some rumours regarding "very bad road conditions" @theriver can be reached by a 2-door RAV even after an insanely heavy november rainstorm....!
