Holland Park is close enough to Jinja to head out on safaris to game parks, it's a great base to holiday from, and after a few weeks treking around game parks, it's great to come back to, to relax and recharge. There is nothing as lovely as a sundowner on the veranda of your own peaceful bungalow overlooking the nile and watching the spectacular sunsets. The hosts of Holland Park Hotel in Jinja town Uganda are warm and friendly and so helpful with things to see and do.
There are plenty of activities along the Nile, quad bike riding, white water rafting, horse riding etc, that it's easy to base yourself there and enjoy all the area has to offer.
If you are traveling on your own, you feel very safe and secure there, and very well cared for.
The place is really great, like a park, green, clean and a fantastic view over the Nile. The houses are beautiful with European quality, electricity, nice hot showers and 'gezellig'.
The energy is green, hot water and electricity by the sun.
If you want to sit by the Nile and soak up the atmosphere or take a boat ride out to go fishing and try your luck with the Nile Perch its your choice.
There are plenty of activities if you want, just ask and they can be arranged.
Jinja is only a short distance away and a good safe place so you are not isolated if you fancy a little of the night life or if you want to pick up one of the local tours.
We have stayed there three times now over the last few years and look forward to our return its like home from home.
