Just 10 minutes from Entebbe International Airport, Karibu Entebbe is a boutique guest house set in a former presidential residence on the leafy hillside of Entebbe. It is a peaceful, tranquil place to relax when you first arrive into Uganda.
The hillside location and mature gardens are frequently visited by over 30 species of birdlife - from miniscule Fire Finches to the resident Palm Nut Vulture.
Entebbe itself is located on a small peninsular in Lake Victoria around 40 km from the capital city of Uganda - Kampala. All major international flights come through Entebbe Airport, however there plenty to do here if you have some spare time.
Just 5 minutes from Karibu, the Botanical Gardens were established in 1898 and are home to over 300 varieties of exotic plant species as well as an abundance of birdlife, black and white Colobus and vervet monkeys. The rainforest zone in the gardens was used as a backdrop during the filming of the original Tarzan film in 1940.
The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee sanctuary was founded by the Jane Goodall Institute in 1998 and this 100 acre island is now a refuge for over 40 rescued chimpanzees, or just one hour from Entebbe are the Mbamba swamps, a fantastic habitat to spot the rare shoebill in the wild.
Or simply relax and cruise out onto Lake Victoria to watch the beautiful colours created by the sun as it sets on the horizon. This is also a great opportunity to see some amazing bird life on the waters edge.
The 8 unique and individually designed rooms are spread over the original homestead and an extension in the tropical gardens. Rooms in the main house enjoy superb sunsets over Lake Victoria, whilst the rooms in the garden open the door to exotic plants and bird life.
There is also a swimming pool and spa treatments such as massages can also be arranged.
