I did a quick overnight in Entebbe before catching a flight home to the States and Karibu was a great place to stay. My room was clean and comfortable, and the grounds are quiet and safe. The room I stayed in was right above the restaurant, which meant you could hear some noise, but they close things down fairly early... More

I just had my second stay at Karibu Guest House and was so happy it was as good as my first. Calm and friendly even as a storm passed directly overhead, the staff took it in stride. The food was great and the night's sleep peaceful. So glad for the quick shuttle in the early morning!

We stayed two nights at Karibu at the beginning of our Uganda trip. It is well located and reasonably priced. The rooms are nice and clean, the food decent, the owner really nice and helpful. The garden is lovely.

What a great place to pop in and spend some time in Uganda. Entebbe is by far a better place to stay if you are not up for the hustle and bustle of the city life in Kampala. We stayed at Karibu for 3 nights. Food and rooms were really good. Service was excellent. Very clean and comfortable guest house.... More

I spent a week at the Karibu guest house and I have to say I have never felt so at home in any hotel/guest house in ten years of travels around Africa The place is beautiful, furnished with lots of taste, very simple but very beautiful. The garden around the rooms is a little Eden, with different trees sheltering all... More

We were booked into the guest house for an overnight stay on the way to see the Mountain Gorillas. The morning of our gorilla excursion, i broke the filling in an old cavity, leaving the root exposed. Pain!! Samm and Rhys arranged for me to go to Kampala, see a wonderful dentist and have the tooth repaired. I was able... More

A beautiful guest house that has lived up to all the reviews on Trip Advisor. The themed rooms are beautiful and clean, the grounds are pleasant and restful, and the meals are the best I have had in my month in Uganda. I particularly like the deck and furniture of the garden view rooms where I write this review. Complaints... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way home after 1yr in Uganda. The staff are attentive without being stalkers, the food is excellent without being pretentious, the rooms are beautiful without being OTT. Dogs roam free all over Uganda & Entebbe is not immune so noise at night is sometimes an issue but you cannot hold Karibu responsible.... More

This was a jewel to stay in to start my trip in Uganda. The rooms are nice and it's in a quiet area with a very pretty view of Lake Victoria. The staff was amazing and very accommodating and the food was delicious. I stayed here on my arrival to Entebbe and also the night before I flew home, and... More

A nice location and management was very supportive. Due to crazy factors we arrived a day late. They should have charged us for 2 nights but only charged for one. Our rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good
