Bird Watching keeps watchers busy around the gardens, a walk in suburban Entebbe streets, a walk to the docking shores at Nakiwogo, and great attractions around Entebbe. If you’re heading back from a gorilla trekking experience, we recommend Tides Spa to loosen your tense muscles before/after your flight.

Entebbe offers a great introduction to Uganda’s inland attractions. The legendary Jane Goodall operates a chimpanzee sanctuary on a nearby Ngamba Island. If you won’t be visiting the primate capital jungles, visit the islands, and meet orphaned chimps, it a great alternative. UWEC zoo and the botanical gardens are also close by for a great introduction to Uganda’s wildlife. A canoe boat ride in Mabamba Swamps, where one of the world’s most amazing birds, the shoebill, finds refuge, is a must-visit for birders. Modern shopping malls, local markets, upmarket restaurants, and bars are within walking distance of Karibu Guesthouse.

End the day with sundowners on the magnificent Lake Victoria. A breeze whispers through the air, cool and soothing, as you motor through the lake winds and sip a refreshing cocktail. The evening is yours.


Our gorilla trekking experiences are entirely customizable with the help of an expert safari planner. We can show you these and more for inspiration to put together an incredible trip to Africa.
