I stayed at Karibu around 1 year ago while travelling with my family. I was back on business this time and my evening arrival and morning departure a few days later were a great excuse to stay here again.
A lot of work has gone into the place in the last year, construction of a new wing of rooms which have been very nicely designed and decorated, my favorite parts; the huge mozzie nets which hang around, not on the bed, and the cool rock design in the showers.
The staff were as friendly and professional as ever and mostly familiar faces which is good to see they are forming a good experienced crew there. I raved about the meals last time and was not disappointed again with some amazing fillet steak on my first night and fish in wine sauce on my way out. Both nights I stayed the guesthouse was fully booked but the food service was impeccable, the wait staff and kitchen obviously very adept at the timings of meal service, something I usually find to be either far too fast or incredibly slow in other restaurants in Uganda, even in the expensive hotels!
My work will have me coming back to Uganda more often, and Karibu will be my No.1 option for Entebbe. My only advice to other people reading this review is to book early, I tried to book for March next year and they were already full!!
