The Space

This cottage is newly renovated and located in a beautiful garden overlooking the river Nile and is especially designed for people who love nature, birds and a quiet environment. 65 different species of birds have been spotted in the adjacent gardens. The cottage is self catering but a "meal of the day" can also be ordered from the next door retreat centre. Please order your meal a day in advance. * Big veranda overlooking the Nile * Small sitting room with bar * Kitchen with gas cooker and gas fridge * Bedroom with double bed * Bathroom with hot and cold shower * Solar powered (no power cuts) * use of 12 x 5 swimming pool The room is 5 km away from Jinja Town. A boda boda (motorcycle taxi) can be arranged for transport to and from the town to Njeru. A number of a private taxi can also be given to guests. In Jinja, you will find supermarkets and restaurants and of course the famous "Source of the Nile." Swimming and fishing in the Nile are possible and rafting or bird viewing trips can be arranged. The room is small but very cosy and ideal for people who want to be "away from the world."

Guest Access

The guests will enjoy the swimming pool, and the large garden next door with swing beds and a trampoline. There is good access to the river for fishing.

Interaction with Guests

I live next door to the property and will be able to assist when needed. However, the practical things will be taken care of by the staff of the retreat centre next door.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is very quiet and away from the noise of the city. It is near a local village with friendly people who are very helpful.

Getting Around

There are a number of boda boda's (motorcycle taxi's) that will come and pick guests up and there are private hire taxi's to Jinja for approx. 6 euro's.

Other Things to Note

There are a number of tourist attractions such as rafting, kayaking, bungee jumping all within 5 km from the house. A local tourist company can pick guests up from the garden for a 2 hour trip on the River Nile.

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.
