Dream Kenya Safari

Wildwaters Lodge

Spread across approximately six hectares on Kalagala Island, Wildwaters Lodge is perched on a distinctive private island within the dynamic currents of the River Nile in Uganda, roughly 25km downstream from Jinja in the eastern part of the country. Accessible exclusively by boat, the lodge offers a unique and adventurous retreat. Positioned on granite rocks, it provides a singular viewpoint surrounded by thrilling rapids.

Following an action-packed day, Wildwaters Lodge transforms into a serene haven, providing an ideal setting for honeymooners and couples seeking tranquility, with a spa overlooking the ancient river. The rhythmic and calming sounds of the mighty Nile create a hypnotic experience, engaging all the senses.

The ten stand-alone elevated timber floors and super-spacious luxury suites are nestled in the rainforest with amazing river views. Each is linked by raised wooden walkways to the restaurant, bar, and library, and features glass-fronted windows, locally handmade furniture, stylish bathrooms with rain showers, and secluded wooden decks with daybeds and romantic free-standing open-air bathtubs. There are also delicious sunrise breakfasts and candle-lit three-course dinners and a lovely swimming pool cantilevered above the river in the attractive main communal lodge area.

  • 7 standard suites, 2 private plunge pool suites, and 1 two bedded suite make up the total complement of accommodation on the island.
