Lemala Wildwaters Lodge

Located on a private island on the River Nile

Located on the mighty River Nile

Enjoy one of the last truly wild areas of the River Nile, only accessible by boat

Nestled in a extensive rainforest on its own private island, mid-stream of the River Nile, Lemala Wildwaters Lodge is located in one of Africa's most remote and exciting regions. The main lodge is perched on a solid rock peninsula, amid the thundering rapids of the Nile, making it a unique and once in a lifetime experience.

Thick forest covers the island, and the lodges are ten traditionally thatched rooms, each boasting private decks with free standing bathtubs and washbasins overlooking the Nile. The expansive, canvas walled rooms are decorated with handmade furniture, and guests can relax in a water paradise listening to the calls of endemic birds and the roaring rapids. The lodge has a library, a natural swimming pool carved by the river over millennia, and a large dining area overlooking the river rapids.

Lemala Wildwaters Lodge is at the centre of a new wildlife reserve aimed at protecting the pristine riverine environment for future generations and ensuring local communities benefit directly from lodge visitors. Activities at the lodge focus on experiencing the surrounding rapids, from whitewater rafting to kayaking and paddle boarding, guests can enjoy a variety of watersports. If extreme adrenaline is more your thing, you can even bungee over the Nile!
