Overview of Lemala Wildwaters Lodge

Wildwaters Lodge is an African Eden: 10 spacious suites lie within 6.5 hectares of pristine riverine forest that make up an island in the middle of the Nile River – the longest in the world – that flows and rages through Uganda. Leave the mainland behind and arrive by canoe, your guide expertly handling the rocks and rapids. Then walk through pristine, emerald-green jungle that teems with birdlife – listen out for the distinctive cry of the African fish eagle – until you arrive at one of the most unique lodges on the continent.

Wildwaters Lodge is a water-sports lover’s dream: whitewater rafters can tackle ‘wild or mild’ courses, taking class 5 rapids if they choose; jet boating; fishing or swimming in the pool that has been forged from natural rock. As you enjoy the fresh waters of the Nile, keep an eye out for fellow water babies like otters or monitor lizards.

Each of the suites has balcony that not only has wonderful views but also an outdoor, claw-foot tub for alfresco bathing – a wonderful way to enjoy the sunset. In addition, suites have queen-sized daybeds that are perfect to relax with a book from the lodge’s library, and hand basins carved from local pink granite. Whether you are in your suite or out on the water, Whitewater Lodge provides a stress-free honeymoon or holiday.
