Wildwaters Lodge Factsheet
Situated on 6.5 hectares of unspoilt island paradise. Nestled in between thundering rapids on the Nile River. The energy of the river meets the majestic serenity of the pristine natural surrounds of the riverine Island. Only 3km east of Kangulumira Town on the quiet tarmac Kayunga Road that loops around Mabira Forest on the west bank of the Nile. You are in a private oasis of tranquility and energy. Just 30 minutes to the Adventure hub of Jinja and 1.5 hours from Kampala.
The Lodge has beautifully appointed stand alone suite style rooms, perched aloft the ground level connected by a network of meandering elevated walkways, amongst the riverine rainforest. Each with a unique aspect to the Nile that is both breathtaking and spectacular.

After Ndere Centre you reach the Northern bypass round-a-bout. Take the 2nd exit. At the T-junction turn right moving past Moonberg Breweries. Travel along this road until you get to a junction at Kayunga town you will see a large blue Wildwaters sign up on the right hand side. TURN RIGHT TOWARDS JINJA. Travel past Nazigo village until you get to KANGULUMIRA where you will see another large blue Wildwaters sign on the left hand side. Turn left just after PetroCity Petrol Station.
