Day -1 Sail from Entebbe to Jinja:

Your 3 Day Luxury Safari – Wildwaters Lodge Safari begins as you sail from Entebbe to Jinja on the 54 passenger boat M.V. Vanessa.  Sailing on Wednesday, Friday and Sundays.  This pleasant journey on Lake Victoria takes 2 1/2 hours which on most days is less time than getting to Jinja by road due to the traffic gridlocks that you experience on the Journey by road.  Sailing by boat to Jinja is the preferred option for most of our Clients.

We pick you up at your hotel and bring you in time for the 9 am departure having pre-booked your journey to Jinja.  You will enjoy the boat ride mostly along the coastline to Jinja. The M.V. Vanessa is a modern sea-worthy vessel that started to plow the waters of Lake Victoria in March of 2019 and our clients have enjoyed the boat ride over the road trip.

In Jinja, you are met by our Driver-Guide who will take you to the luxurious Wildwaters Lodge on Munyanja Island in the Wildwater portion of the Nile.

Your room is simply an amazing delight where everything has been prepared for your comfort in luxurious style, it simply cannot get any better.  Before you is the rushing River Nile, behind your private cottage made from tented and natural materials that abound here, impeccably decorated, all with you in mind, even a private bathtub on  your deck where you can literally soak it all in.  Most certainly a unique out of the ordinary experience.

Take a midday dip in the natural swimming pool that is right along the River Nile, and cool off from the equatorial sun as you have the day of a lifetime experiencing the River Nile one of Africa’s Natural Wonders up close and personal.

Lunch is a delight and not a mere meal making the surroundings you are in even more pleasant, enjoy.

Walk off the lunch by taking a nature walk around the islands and enjoying the Trees, plants, flowers, birds, and monkeys and notice the quiet only broken by the sound of the River Nile.

Awaken to the sounds of the ancient Nile and songbirds all around you – it is breakfast time and some superb  Ugandan coffee to get you going for the day.
