“The perfect place to relax and enjoy the nile”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

There is nothing as lovely as a sundowner on the verander of your own peaceful bungalow overlooking the nile and watching the spectacular sunsets. The hosts Wim and Monique are warm and friendly and so helpfull with things to see and do. Holland Park is close enough to Jinja to head out on safaris to game parks, it's a great base to holiday from, and after a few weeks treking around game parks, it's great to come back to, to relax and recharge. There are plenty of activities along the nile, quade bike riding, white water rafting, horse riding etc, that it's easy to base yourself there and enjoy all the area has to offer. if you are traveling on your own, you feel very safe and secure there, and very well cared for. We are lookiing forward to our next trip..Sherry and Keith from Queensland Australia

What can I say? It's obvious from the other reviews that this is a great place. Just back from my 2nd visit. Wim & Monique who run the place make everything easy for you and can book any trips and activities for you. Just tell them what you want and they'll sort it. The cottages are perfect for 2 or 3 people and they've resisted the temptation to add more so the place is so quiet it's like having your own house on the Nile for a couple of days.
A perfect base for a trip to Jinja - simple as that.

I stayed at Holland Park for a couple of nights when visiting a friend and exploring Uganda. It is such a beautful place with stunning views and was one of the most relaxing days of the trip. The rooms were excellent, very clean and everything you'd need is provided. Fishing trips on the nile are also available which were a stunning way to see the beatiful river. It's run by an amazing dutch couple who were soo friendly. Can't wait to go back!

Imaging waking up to the call of a Fish Eagle, to open your eyes breathtaking uninterrupted views of the Nile in your backyard from from your own cottage. Set amongst stunning open gardens on a large property bordering the Nile itself, Holland Park is all this and so much more. A great experience and I can't wait to return.

Trip of a lifetime, and staying at Holland Park was one of the highlights. We spent 3 weeks with Wim and Monique and they made us feel like we were special guests. The location is peaceful, beautiful and exotic. We can't wait to return. I am at a loss for words for truly expressing our time there. It will forever be in our memories.

If you want a beautiful spot to stay on the Nile river look no further! Very nice location near to the origins of the Nile river. Lots of activities you can do in the vicinity. Very nice owners who know their way around and give good advice on what to do.
Jinja is also a very nice place to just wander around a bit (if you get tired of all the things you can do!)
