Saranac on the Nile is a peaceful retreat on the Nile River, 22 miles from Jinja. It is our family home, as well as a get-away for our friends and adventurous travelers to share and enjoy. The secluded, 8-acre property has two self-catering 1-bedroom cottages (each w/ 2 beds), swimming pool, and beautiful river views.

If you are interested in also renting the main house (sleeps 4 in 1 bedroom), please inquire. We can also host team retreats.

The space

Saranac has two self-catering cottages and a main house, tucked away amongst lots of trees, giving you plenty of privacy. Guests can relax on their private patio, swim in the saltwater pool, paddle on the river, search for the more than 100 bird species spotted on the property, or explore the rocky outcrops that make the property unique. We also have a small playhouse for families with children.

In the evening, enjoy a BBQ (we provide the charcoal), or a campfire under the stars (just ask Steven!). Our wonderful staff can purchase certain basic items for you at the nearby trading center, such as fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, and drinks.

We have an inflatable kayak and a motor boat (with driver) for guests to use. Please inquire with the manager if you're interested.

Guest access

You will have access to the pool area, dock, inflatable kayak, motor boat, and kids playhouse. You are free to explore all corners of the large property as well.

Interaction with guests

We have a wonderful team, led by our manager Steven, who will help take care of you during your stay. They are available to help you at all hours with anything you need. At times we will be also staying at the property in the main house, and will be available to answer any questions that you have.

Other things to note

Immediately next door to our property is the wonderful Kipling Lodge. They have a fully stocked bar and a fantastic restaurant. If you are interested in having dinner there, please contact them ahead of time to make a reservation (+(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)). Note that they need at least 1/2 day notice to prepare for additional dinner guests.

You can stock up on food in Jinja before you come out to Saranac. Check out The Deli on Main Street in Jinja if you're passing through town for a selection of fresh, delicious food, including great meats for the BBQ.
