One of the pioneers and exclusive safari hotels in Entebbe that has maintained its charm for decades is the Boma Hotel. Located close to the International Airport, the Boma is set in tropical gardens, giving you the jungle’s rustic ambiance, which puts you in the right mood for a Uganda safari.

The Boma accommodation combines today’s modern comforts with the classic charm and character of the original 1940’s home. Its lovely décor and a flower-filled yard make for an intimate atmosphere that safari travelers rate highly. It is a perfect stop in Entebbe to freshen up before/after your scheduled international flight.

Popular with inbound/outbound tourists and expatriates alike, it’s a welcoming setup in a tastefully restored colonial homestead in a leafy suburb. The comfortable self-contained rooms are fitted with an attractive combination of English-colonial furnishings and African fabrics.

The Boma operates with regards to green principles that include solar-powered geysers, rainwater catchment systems, reusable water fountains rather than plastic bottles, recycling, and a kitchen garden to supply fresh salads greens.

There is a swimming pool with a shallow children’s area for travelers that want to float on summer days, a crafts and souvenir shop, and bicycle rental to ride around the suburban streets of Entebbe. If you’re heading back from a gorilla trekking experience, we recommend you get a rejuvenating massage to loosen your tense muscles before your next 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 the Boma hotel.

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.
