My friends and I had over 12 hours in Entebbe before catching our night flight out to Amsterdam. This was the perfect place to relax, shower, have a nice meal and catch a ride to the airport for our midnight flight. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and quiet, the food and wine delicious, all at... More

If you are looking for a safe, comfortable and clean place to relax while transiting Entebbe, Karibu is a great choice. The inn is just a short taxi away from the airport. Jenny, Jennifer and the rest of the staff were attentive and helpful. Our dinner was tasty and it was nice to be able to dine on property and... More

We stayed here on the first night of our tour and it was wonderful. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff went above and beyond for our comfort. The airline lost my luggage on my flight into Uganda, but the staff at Karibu went out of their way to help me track it down and even organised for it... More

We stayed just one night after our arrival in Entebbe from Amsterdam, NE. We left early next morning (before the birds were up) for our flight to Kidepo National Park. It was such a short stay, but obvious that Karibu Guesthouse was a lovely place and we felt so welcomed. We stayed in the Lavender Room, which was clean, very... More

We stayed two nights during our time in Uganda - one night at the start, and one just prior to departure. All the staff were very welcoming, and we didn't have to worry about anything during our stay. The room was very comfortable with plenty of hot water for a shower. Leslie was fantastic! She drove us into town to... More

Staff are well trained and SO friendly. Ugandan hospitality at its best. Great service, good location, though one does hear the noise of air traffic from Entebbe airport, there are ear plugs provided in the rooms.

We arrived at the Karibu after a grueling 26 hour travel day. They had arranged for a driver to pick us up at Entebbe airport - he was there on time and very courteous. The staff at Karibu were amazing! We were greeted in the parking lot and treated like family just returning from a long trip. The room was... More
