Lemala Wildwaters Lodge (Uganda Luxury Safari Lodge)
Located on roughly six hectares on Kalagala Island, Lemala Wildwaters Lodge lies on a unique private island mid-stream within the mighty River Nile in Uganda: around 25km downstream from Jinja in eastern Uganda. It’s in a sublime location and only reached by boat which makes it a very adventurous place to stay. And, it’s uniquely perched on granite rocks with noisy and exciting foamy rapids roaring all around.
The ten stand-alone elevated timber-floor and super-spacious luxury suites nestled in the rainforest with amazing river views. Each are linked by raised wooden walkways to the restaurant, bar and library, and feature 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 and far above standard sunrise breakfasts and candle-lit three-course dinners and a lovely swimming pool carved out of natural pink granite rocks in the attractive main communal lodge area. The canvas walled and thatched cottages feature a private deck with free-standing bath. The units also offer hand-crafted furniture and the beds are draped with a mosquito net. Each unit has a safety deposit box and complimentary toiletries.
The restaurant and bar area can be reached via elevated, wooden walkways. Guests can indulge in a full English breakfast with a selection of cereals, fruits and juices. For lunch and dinner, the restaurant is an a-la carte menu.
Activities on the river for guests in the nearby adventure hub of the Jinja area including heart-pounding white-water rafting or bungee jumping and gentler horse riding or fishing. Additionally, Lemala Wildwaters is a perfect platform for viewing some of the more than 1000 bird species that Uganda is so famous for – from turacos and cuckoos to hawks and eagles – and you might also spot giant otters and monitor lizards in the water.
It is fun for the whole family, but Lemala Wildwaters Lodge also offers a relaxing and intimate stay for honeymooners and couples looking for some quiet time – if of course the roar of the racing white-water rapids does not interfere. But, really these sounds on the mighty Nile are quite hypnotic and calming so Lemala Wildwaters offers an experience in all the senses.
