Ideal for chilling, birdwatching or white water kayaking. We're located right on the banks of the Nile overlooking the white water rapid "Bubugo" and "Superhole", an awesome freestyle kayak surf wave. It's a beautiful location with the sound of the river to keep you company, a lot of trees and birds and a beautiful starlit sky at night... Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

The space
The safari tent is located in our semi-wild garden space. Its a simple room with double bed. We have an outdoor cold shower and long drop toilet, outdoor shade area, outdoor kitchen and small store room. We use solar electricity to run the basics. We have a gas cooker and often Bbq. We have a small organic farm with a cow, goats and a variety of crops. Our home recently featured in Channel 4 in the U.K. in a programme called Escape to the Wild.

Guest access
You can enjoy the garden, look around the farm (help out if you like!), enjoy the river. Swim in our bay or one of the many others along the riverbank. You can use our shaded living room area with couch and table, and our picnic table. You can cook in our kitchen/on the bbq, and keep a small amount of perishables in our small fridge, and other food in our storeroom. You can use our discreet outdoor toilet and shower- you can't beat seeing the Nile as you shower! There are some solar lights In the store and kitchen and solar lamps in the tent. Please be mindful to not waste or overuse water or the solar power. We live a simple and lovely life with nature all around us.

Other things to note
We have two other double tent rooms available to rent on the property, so if you need more space for people then please let us know/find them on Airbnb. We also have garden space where you can put up a tent (or ten!) if you are a bigger group. Additional campers with their own tent are charged an additional rate (the extra person rate).

Location

Jinja, Eastern Region, Uganda

We are located in rural Uganda, and our relationship with our local community is very important to us. It is therefore important that our guests respect this and dress/behave appropriately when out and about locally. There are no amenities nearby and we are quite self sufficient. Any shopping needs to be brought from Jinja town or the basics from our local village. There are lots of footpaths to explore along the riverbank, walking upriver through crop land or down river through the forest to Itanda falls.

During your stay
We both work across two continents and are parents to our young children. We also manage the farm and land, and have a number of community projects we oversee. And we love to kayak. So, we are quite busy, but we are interested to meet people and learn about their lives and experiences! Depending on our schedules we may be around to meet you, otherwise our staff will welcome and look after you and we'll be available online/on the phone to help answer any questions.
