The Haven has it down. Nice, clean, welcoming accommodations, good food, pleasant helpful staff, unparalleled views of the Nile and its impressive "Dead Dutchman" rapids. Great for romance or for family times. It's got the space and privacy to accommodate different kinds of visits.

Very beautiful, fantastic food, brilliant service and amazing management, if you want to relax get away from the urban hullabaloo, heavy Trafic and noisy Taxis this is the place. 2.5 Km of Jinja - Kayunga on the banks of the Nile is the haven.

It had a great view of the river and was absolutely beautiful. Downstairs was a private bedroom with two twin beds and large bed for two. It also had a living... More

We stayed in the bungalows - each isolated with a sense of privacy. Decorated with African charm - a bit rustic (lizards in the bathroom) - but clean and tidy. Food was quite good (excellent breakfast), hot water - fine. And free wifi throughout the hotel (including the rooms. Exceptional views on the Nile. A wonderful spot in the midst... More

When we rode our horses through the Haven gate, it was like heaven on earth. Serene, quiet, beautiful views, friendly and helpful staff, great food. Eat out on the patio overlooking the Nile at breakfast or dinner, by yourself or with good friends - you won't be disappointed. Be aware that they do offer laundry service but they do not... More
