Initially we planned on visiting Wild Waters for lunch and then swim/Kayak in the afternoon. After touring the rooms and other amenities (The outside bathtub was a game changer :-)) we decided to spend the night. A drink at the deck late afternoon was special, so was the dinner. The Chicken Breast is a must order. We had a great...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. We really do appreciate this. And whats is even more amazing is that you were only joining us for lunch but then decided to stay over - so pleased about that. Hope we see you again. Warm regards Veronica

The hotel is set in amazing location on the river Nile. The service is just splendid and very welcoming. Food was great. I would highly recommend this hotel set in the middle of nature at her very best.

If you want a beautiful hideaway luxury retreat for a day or two or just a lovely day out relaxing on an island in the River Nile, Wild Waters is the place to go. Listening to the waves crash against the rocks while chilling in a pool, eating a lovely meal or sunbathing with a glass of wine is just...

They are damming the river, and it is likely to change the rapids forever. We did not stay at the lodge overnight, but went over for lunch and a look around. Very good food in a beautiful setting. Each of the rooms has it's own particular view. Just gorgeous.

Thank you for your review. There is talk about daming the river and whilst this might affect the rapids in some of the areas Wildwaters will continue to be surrounded by lush vegetation and rapids. I do hope that you will stay with us next time you are up for a visit Warm regards Veronica

Outstanding lodge on a more than great location. If you are looking for a relaxing place, far from civilization, don't hesitate. Chalets are wonderful, comfortable and with a fantastic view, food is good, swimming pool unique, staff very nice and helpful. This is an idyllic place to stay! We had an amazing weekend in the family chalet.

A truly unique location, stunning rooms, great food and top service. This place is worth saving up to go to. Beautiful views, lovely staff. There is not really anything negative to say here other than that I wished that we didn't have to leave. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The lodge, located on an island in the middle of the Nile River, is inspired! Visitors inevitably spend time walking around filming or taking photos. The grounds are incredibly lush and one feels as if they're in the middle of a jungle. The Nile River provides a constant backdrop for incredibly restful sleeping. The individual cabanas are very private and...

This was an incredible place by the rapids in the middle of the Nile River. We really wished that we could stay more than one night. Our cottage / bungalow was huge. The bathroom was big. The bed was really comfortable. And there was a tub on the deck to enjoy a bath in the wild or under the stars....

Situated in the middle of the Nile River, Wildwaters Lodge is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. In order to get to this unique place, Lodge staff load all of your belongings into a canoe and paddle across the Nile to the island. The staff are incredibly kind and accommodating.
