After refusing to stay in the over priced, soulless hotels that Entebbe has to offer and reading the tripadviaor reviews for Karibu Guest House, I thought I would give it a try... I arrived early on a Saturday morning to be warmly greeted by a smiling Jenny and the offer of a cup of fresh coffee in the garden -... More

What a treat. Huge comfortable bed, serene and beautiful gardens with lovely outdoor eating area, views down to Lake Victoria, my first wildlife sighting of a fishing owl, great food, wonderful staff and a homely feeling. Felt really safe as a solo traveler.

We have stayed twice at Karibu and really like it. Though it looks "African" with lovely gardens and "quaint" buildings, we enjoyed niceties like hot water, horizontal surfaces, great mosquito netting, delicious breakfast, free wi-fi, and efficient airport pick-up that are often lacking even at "big, Western" hotels. We had a delicious dinner one evening (reservations made beforehand). Some small... More

We stayed there over a weekend and it was wonderful. The room was beautifully decorated and the mosquito net was the biggest I have ever seen. The staff were friendly and helpful - they came to spray insect repellent and prepare the net around 6 pm. They also helped us get a taxi to town the next morning. The only... More

We stayed recently at the beginning and end of our safari holiday In Uganda. Ideally located after a long flight with wonderful views of Lake Victoria. The garden room we had was ideal with plenty of hot water in the clever and naturally designed shower. A roomy mosquito net prepared every evening by the helpful staff. A safe is a... More

This place is amazing for many things: beautiful yard with lots of greenery and birds chirping all day long, creatively designed accommodation, fantastic food but most of all - because of its staff who are really helpful and nice, especially the couple who is managing the place. They will help you with everything and anything and make you feel almost... More

We stayed at Karibu Guesthouse last week whilst on a business trip. The location is good. Entebbe is small but the hotel has a lake view and is in good reach of everything. It's not too close to the airport so you don't have to listen to the jets. Tim, the Manager, was good fun and made us feel like... More

This lovely guest house with beautiful gardens, excellent service and lovely rooms. It is a bit more price wise than other places but the lovely three course meal at night is worth every bite. It is also very close to the airport. Spoil yourself and stay here at the beginning or end of your trip.

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!
