Lemala Wildwaters Lodge

Nestled in the rainforest on its own private island on the mighty Nile, Lemala Wildwaters Lodge is breathtaking. Thick riverine forest covers the island and each of the ten timber-floor rooms is nestled amidst the forest with private views over the River Nile and its rapids. The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite. Softly lit with hand made furniture, you can relax in comfort on this island paradise listening to the thunder of the Nile rapids, and the calls of the many species of bird who call the island home. Elevated wooden walkways gracefully link the rooms to the restaurant and bar area and offer an unforgettable walk through the heart of the forest.

The main lodge is located quite unbelievably on a solid rock peninsula, amidst the rapids of the River Nile. Relax here, cooled by the constant breezes from the racing rapids or plunge into the adjacent natural swimming pool, carved by the river over millennia from pink granite. This is the ultimate location to enjoy one of the last wild areas of the entire Nile.
