Relaunch of the African Queen

The African Queen

Enjoy the magic of a steam-powered cruise at the Kalagala Falls in Uganda!

The original African Queen has recently been relaunched into the flat waters of the river Nile at Wildwaters Lodge. After hours of dedicated and delicate work on the “Queen”, the boat is now back in full steam making atmospheric river trips. The African Queen was featured in the 1951 famous movie of Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn.

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.
