The staff is exceptional and knows each guest by name; the rooms are marvelously lovely; the food is nourishing and gourmet; the grounds are thoughtfully maintained and welcoming. We especially appreciated the strong and fast internet,...

A lovely guest house and ideal for a relaxing night before or after a long flight or even just a relaxing short break. Stayed in one of the delightful cottages. Food excellent and staff efficient and friendly. Airport transfer a bonus.

We stayed only for one night to be close to the airport, but would have loved to stay longer. It was so nice to get away from the city noise and enjoy the lovely room, well kept and tranquil garden, lovely pool and a hot shower after a long day. The food is fantastic!! The hosts, Kevin and Leslie, couldn't...

Right from the time you drive into Karibu guesthouse (10 minutes from the Entebbe Airport), you feel you are at a homely place. receptive smiles from the ladies at the reception counter to the brightly welcoming garden cottages. This guesthouse is a gem. One thing you will surely enjoy is the food.

Arriving at Entebbe airport late at night, it was a joy to be met at the airport and barely 15 minutes later enjoying a G+T at Karibu! I was shown to my spacious garden room with wifi, mosquito net and a wonderful hot shower. After a refreshing sleep I ate a delicous breakfast before starting on my trip. In previous...

Stayed at Karibu for one night on arrival in Entebbe before driving to Sipi Falls. Everything from pick up at the airport to leaving in the morning was brilliant, the rooms are charming and a decent size, with a hot working shower (once the water came through!). Staff at check in, breakfast and check out were all pleasant and friendly,...
