#1 of 60 Specialty lodging in Entebbe
Travelers' Choice
ViaVia is located alongside beautiful fish ponds with a spectacular view of the water and the opposite hill in a lush green environment: plain African nature full of birds, monkeys, turtles and more. All rooms are self-contained with lodge-style mosquito nets overlooking the garden. Our garden, backyard & pond view rooms have private verandas. We also have three stunning tents that are fully equipped and have everything guests need for a fantastic glamping experience. From freshly made smoothies and local beers to some good old Ugandan coffee: our beloved bar has it all. On today's menu you will always find fresh and healthy food, spiced with world flavours and a Belgian touch. If you’re lucky, you can share your breakfast with the resident monkeys playing in the trees while you’re relaxing on our outside terrace or in one of our hammocks.

Via Via was the first lodge where we overnighted on our first trip to Uganda (and Africa), and it was a most welcoming experience! The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was quaint and clean, and the breakfast was delicious.

the reception (at midnight) was friendly and helpful, the restaurant was still open, the room was clean and quiet, the beds and the shower were comfortable, the breakfast was very good the service (organizing a taxi) was quick in short: we decided to come back to Viavia Guesthouse at the end of our trip.

Great to hear that you had a good time at ViaVia while visiting Uganda! We indeed make sure that people arriving with Brussels Airlines or KLM still find the reception open and can have something to eat upon arrival so you do not need to go to bed hungry. Tropical greetings from the ViaVia team!

This is a well run travelers hotel, outside seating is cozy and the staff is competent and friendly. Bring cash as they do not accept credit cards or change money on site. Another plus is that the kitchen/bar is often open late for those late night arrivals. Thanks ViaVia Team for the great value!

This place is just perfect! It is as well located in a beautiful place in Entebbe. The whole ViaVia team has always been more than happy to help me when needed. They have exceeded my expectations at all times and could not stop smiling. For Uganda I have found my place to stay at when coming back. As a solo traveller, I did not get bored at any moment and always found something nice to do, this as well, for a big part because of the Via Via team!! I will definitely promote this place to all people interested in travelling to Uganda. Thank you to the whole team for this great welcome and service!! You all deserve 5 stars. Weebale!
