A typical African style cottage with a large veranda, overlooking the River Nile. The garden has a wide variety of birds and monkeys. Cool off in the swimming pool or catch your own fish for lunch.
5km from Jinja, the adventure capital of E. Africa.
This a thatched house with big verandah, sitting area, kitchen, hot showers, solar power, and private parking space. 1 bedroom with double bed and a mezzanine floor with two single beds. For a fifth person, there is a sofa bed in the sitting area but it is not very comfortable and only fit for young children.
The cottage has a beautiful big garden sloping down to the river Nile and a newly built 12 x 5 meter swimming pool.
You can choose to do self catering or you can order "the meal of the day" from the retreat centre connected to the garden. Bird safaris on the Nile and rafting can be arranged as well as horse back safaris. The river is great for fishing too. It's the perfect place for nature lovers, so bring your binoculars!
The house is 5 km away from Jinja, the second biggest town in Uganda. It is easy to arrange public transport to take you to Jinja, where you will find restaurants, supermarkets and the famous "Source of the Nile."
The cottage is an ideal place to go with friends or meet family far away from your home country.

I am available for guests if there is need. However the practical things are taken care of by the staff of the retreat centre next door.
There are a number of tourist attractions in Jinja, such as rafting, bungee jumping, kayaking and fishing. A local fisher boat can pick you up from the house to do a bird safari on the river Nile. A list with activities and phone numbers are in the house.
There is electricity in the cottage, with a solar back up in case of power failure. Water from the tap needs to be boiled or filtered. It is advisable to come with bottled water or buy it from the retreat centre next door.
We kindly ask guests to play music only inside the house as there are other people living nearby. Smoking is not allowed in the house, only outside.
The house is for 4 people only, with possibly space for a extra child. The house is equipped for 5 people so please do not cook meals for bigger parties as the house is too small to accommodate more.
