  • Important Information
An island archipelago on the magnificent Nile, the Hairy Lemon Island provides rustic secluded bandas, family cottages, dormitories, and camping areas tucked under canopies of rain forest. Hairy Lemon Island offers accommodation for various plans and budgets. Get a good night's rest in our clean and comfortable units, consisting of dorms and private bandas.

The two dorms are equipped with bunk beds, clean and simple, and are quite suitable for backpackers. For the traveller that requires a little more comfort and privacy during their stay, the bandas would be a perfect option. The Sugar Shack, a rustic double unit, comes with a secluded natural splash pool and a view of the river, proving to be the most popular choice for guests. For those who enjoy camping, simply pitch your tent on our hillside campsite within eye and earshot of the Nile River.

Prices include three meals, with tea and coffee available any time after 8am. Drinks and snacks are available at the bar at an extra charge, and laundry services are offered for a nominal fee. Come and lounge on the sunlit beaches and dappled lawns, or relax in the comfortable open-air lounges on the hilltop. The Nile flows in shallow eddies between the islands, creating natural pools for swimming. Volleyball and is also a popular sport, and the area boasts good activities for fishermen and bird-watchers.
