Directions via Kayunga

** This is our preferred route from Kampala - less traffic, nice scenery, and generally faster than coming via Jinja Road.

  • Leave Kampala via Gayaza Road
    • To get to Gayaza Road from Kampala, travel to Ntinda and turn left after the Ndere Troup at the main junction. You will then reach the Northern Bypass roundabout.
    • Take the 2nd roundabout exit towards Kisasi / Gayaza
    • Follow the road until you reach Gayaza Road T-junction, then turn right onto Gayaza Road (you will shortly pass Moonberg Breweries)
  • Travel along Gayaza road, passing Gayaza, Kalagi, Nagalama, and Nakifuma, until you get to a junction just before Kayunga town. 
  • Turn right at this junction towards Jinja
  • Travel for approximately 25 kms on this road, passing Nazigo and Kangulamira (Wildwaters Lodge) until you see a small white signpost on your left for for Saranac on the Nile, just after a valley with rice on the right hand side.
  • Turn left at the signpost, head towards the river, and follow the signposts until you reach the gate of the estate. If you miss the first signpost and reach the village of Bukeka, you have gone too far.
  • See map below showing the route for the last couple of miles
