We stayed at Karibu on two occasions. For 3 nights when we first arrived in Uganda and then for single night prior to our return to the UK. Karibu is situated in a great location, close to the State House it is on a hill overlooking the sea. The rooms are of a great standard and the garden is a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of a trip to Uganda and loved it so much that we changed our plans so that we could also stay here on our last night. Everything was perfect, from the airport pickup, the lovely and extremely comfortable garden room, the beautiful garden itself, the surroundings of the hotel which are... More

We were blown away by how nice Karibu Guest House was. Firstly, the private garden is a beautiful and a relaxing place to spend an afternoon. We really enjoyed the bird watching and saw many different species. The staff were great in all aspects. They helped us arrange our tours, fed us delicious meals, gave us a nice room, arranged...

In a beautiful setting with staff of the highest quality, this guesthouse is my favorite lodging in Uganda. Spacious and comfortable rooms--especially the lovely terrace rooms near the garden, make this a great spot to start or finish a trip to Uganda, or to stay if you are seeing the sites in Entebbe. Highly recommend!

As I reside in Entebbe, I have not stayed in any of the beautiful and tastefully decorated rooms at the Karibu Guest House, but I have many international visitors who travel to Entebbe for work and I always recommend the Karibu Guest House.

This small guest house is a fantastic start- and finish-point for your journey in Uganda! The owners are very friendly and over the top service-minded and flexible, as are all the staff. Every evening a 4-course dinner is offered - the best food I had in Uganda (have been coming here for 3 yrs...). Rooms (especially the garden rooms) are... More

Kevin and his wife were very welcoming and helpful. They and their staff were extremely attentive. Entebbe was the first stop of our trip and they picked us up for free from the airport, which saved us time and hassle. Kevin gave us good recommendations on places to go and stay for the rest of the trip. The rooms were... More

This is my first time reviewing Karibu, but we have been coming here for respite from Kampala for several years, and it has to be said that Karibu is consistently excellent - not just for a stopover before/after a flight, but just to get away from the hectic city or to have a chill weekend. The rooms are great value,... More
