The Space

Our home is located in Bukaya village, which is 10km from Jinja town on the west bank of Lake Victoria. The road access to us is on dirt and rough tarmac which can be adventurous in the wet, although a 4WD is not essential, it's always worth driving with caution, especially in the rainy season. Sarah is our lovely housekeeper and works for 4hrs, 6 days a week. She will do her best to make sure you're looked after and will launder your clothes as part of the house service, but as an extra if you would like your clothes to be ironed please pay her a local fee. While you have full access to the kitchen, Sarah does not offer catering services nor cook or prepare food. Sarah is available from 8am until 14:00pm. Please liaise directly with Sarah on which hours suit you best for her to come in. Also, if you wish for more privacy please ask Sarah about leaving early or starting later. To the side of the house is our staff quarters where Sarah and the property care taker lives.

Guest Access

Guests have exclusive access to the house and garden. The property reaches to the Lake however access is quite steep.

Interaction with Guests

You will be met upon arrival by my co-host, Minette, who will show you around the property and answer any questions you may have.

Getting Around

We are a few hundred meters from the Source of the Nile where you can catch a boat across the river, from there hire or pre arrange a boda boda man to take you into Jinja town. It is a quick way to get across to town for supplies or entertainment. King Fisher Resort is only a few hundred meters up the Road. Here you are able to use the pool for a day fee and order food from their restaurant.

Other Things to Note

We provide a welcome basket with a few basic essentials, but it's advisable to shop for all food and drinks prior to your arrival as the nearest supermarket is in Jinja town 10km away. All bedrooms have sliding mosquito nets as well as Foot fans.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
