Our famous restaurant serves mouth watering pizzas made with fresh herbs from our garden and is perfectly baked in a wood fired, clay oven.


At 3986 feet above sea level, Jinja enjoys a pleasant climate all year long and is only 75km from the capital (Kampala) and 115km from Entebbe airport.


In it’s hay day, Jinja was the manufacturing capitol of East Africa. Today, Jinja is a very well-designed town best described as “laid-back”, “peaceful” and “tranquil” by its many international visitors. Jinja is quite simply the perfect getaway town.
