We stayed here for two nights, once at the beginning of our holiday and once at the end. The property is about 10 minutes from the airport, so very convenient. The welcome was warm and friendly, we were met by Dora and Jennifer. The rooms were very comfortable, the garden rooms are newer and have fantastic mosquito nets. The garden... More

We landed at EBB just before midnight, and were happy to be taken in at the Karibu Guest House. We spent a couple of relaxing days there before heading off to western Uganda. The staff were wonderful, and the garden was almost as wild and beautiful as western Uganda. Don't miss the nearby Entebbe Botanical Gardens.

Karibu is just what it's name means welcome.. Or welcoming, which it is from the moment you arrive! The staff is friendly but not intrusive, the ambiance is calm and peaceful and relaxing. Simple yet exotic, especially the garden rooms. Then ther is the cuisine which has to be called by that name for its quality and deliciousness! It's also... More

We stayed here for a night with our young daughter before starting a safari. Clean rooms, good showers and lovely garden for relaxing in. They were really welcoming and accommodating. The dinner was the best food we'd had during our whole stay in Uganda!

I've visited the Karibu for dinner prior to this visit but had not stayed. The staff are fantastic - they make you feel like a member of the family returning home - nothing appears to be too much trouble for them. Room was clean and spacious and the large bed nets a welcomed site. The veranda is a wonderful way... More

The owners talk to you and provide you their recommendations which really helps when you are trying to get around and have limited time. Rooms are clean and reasonable size. Breakfast was top notch. Would recommend this place to people visiting.

We loved Kariba Guest House. After a long and tedious flight it really was the perfect place to relax and unwind. As soon as we arrived we were made welcome. We were shown straight to our room where we enjoyed a lovely pot of tea on the porch. That evening everyone really went out of their way to make us... More

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
