The Original African Queen relaunches with Wildwaters Lodge, Uganda


Wildwaters is delighted to announce the relaunch of the original African Queen featured in Humphrey Bogart & Katharine Hepburn's eponymous movie.  A labour of love requiring hours of dedicated and delicate work the "Queen" and crew conduct atmospheric river trips on the River Nile in the flat water above the Wildewaters Lodge in Uganda.

Nestled in luxuriant rainforest on its own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile, Wildwaters Lodge is breathtaking.  Thick riverine forest naturally covers the island and each of the ten timber-floor rooms is nestled amidst the forest with private, breathtaking views over the River Nile and its rapids.  The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched, rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite.  Softly lit with hand-made furniture, you can relax in comfort on this island paradise listening to the thunder of the Nile rapids, and the calls of the many species of bird who call the island home.
