We have created a little paradise along the shores of the Nile full of flowering plants, teeming with bird life and with a one in a million view on the river Nile.

The sound of the rapids, frogs, cicadas and birds is all you hear.

Nile it! is the place where you can relax.

We serve coffee/tea, cold drinks, snacks, and also nice meals. Nothing fancy - just good food. Want to go out to town: We are only 10 KM down from the Owen dam.

The space
About us:

We stumbled across this lovely spot three years ago. Our first idea was to use it as a weekend get-away from our hectic Kampala lives but soon we realized we love to have something going on. We are running Banda Island Resort and Campsite (bandaisland.biz) and enjoy interacting with guests. So the Nile it! campsite idea was born.

First we planted dozens of trees and created gardens with hundreds of plants. We made a posh gate, a nice thatched roof terrace with viewing platform and a really beautiful bathroom.

Guest access
You are welcome to explore our place and you can access the River Nile directly.

Other things to note
We are a campsite. So you sleep in a tent, fitted with real mattresses and all the bedding. Our accommodation is inclusive of Breakfast and we provide nice meals. Cooking is not allowed.. sorry.

I am also a host on AirBnB and I love the concept. Mostly I travel for work, and I feel best in a homey environment with a space to work and cook my own food. I don’t really like hotels.
