We arrived at the Nile Porch on our first night in Africa. It is so cool, you have a site looking out over the Nile River. You have a cement wall in the back and half walls around the side and the rest of you is incased in canvas. Our porch had a hammock and 2 chairs and our inner room had a loveseat and table, etc. Then there was mosquito netting and 2 beds, a flush toilet and a shower overlooking the Nile. There was no sounds from the Nile, though the first night we were here it was the opening ceremony of the Olympics and the celebration went on for hours...until about 4 am, which the hotel had no control over. There are backpacker hostels on both sides of the hotel, so you have to be flexible. We didn't eat breakfast the first morning because we were rafting, but on Sunday we had a great breakfast on the porch, even though a monkey peed on our waiter. On Monday our breakfast was different.....there was a short supply of yogurt and our pineapple juice was watered down. Nobody from the Nile Porch gave reasons for the lack of food. That was a big disappointment. We had a delicious dinner there on Friday night, talipia wrapped in banana leaves, melt in your mouth!! Also, they were great about having us play cribbage on the porch enjoyng just a few beers. A fun place to stay!!
