What makes Wildwaters special?
Wildwaters is one of Uganda's most unique lodges. The lodge sits on a private island and is accessible only by boat. The lodge is an innovative example of how to blend adventure travel with luxury lodging.
Most travellers use Wildwaters as their base as they spend a couple of days doing adrenaline activities around the Jinja area: kayaking, canoeing, white-water rafting, paddleboarding, fishing, horse riding and quad biking to name a few.
The lodge itself ticks all the boxes for a modern luxury lodge. Well-designed, spacious rooms, en-suite bathrooms and private verandas, and exceptional service. Wildwaters is a very special place.
Rooms & Amenities
Wildwaters has 10 suites, including 1 elevated family suite. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The views from all the suites will impress, but river room views are particularly stunning. Complimentary drinks are brought to your private veranda, and there are massage and spa treatments available as well.
The main building is where you'll find the bar, restaurant, lounge area and dining area that leads out onto the pool and the rapids of the Nile just beyond.
Activities around Wildwaters
Wildwaters is just 25km from Jinja, Uganda's adrenaline capital. It's common for travellers to top or tail their Ugandan itinerary with a couple of days around Jinja for some high-octane adventuring around the Nile. Kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, horse-riding, mountain biking, bungee jumping and the famous white-water rafting are all possible here.
Returning to the comfort of your luxury suite after a day of intense activities is blissful, and Wildwaters is the perfect example of hard days, soft nights.
