Karibu was founded in May 2012 by Leslie (from Corsica) and Kevin (from New Zealand) and quickly established itself as a popular choice amongst travellers with a reputation for service, style, good food and cleanliness.

With a background in managing African Safari Lodges, Luxury European Hotels and operating Safaris in Uganda, we understand what is important during your stay – and that it is the little things that count

Whilst we are proud of our room designs, food and tropical gardens – it is our staff whom we believe set us apart from the rest. Our team of 18 come from all parts of Uganda, many of them have been with us from the first day we started.

“Karibu” means welcome in the Swahilli language – a sentiment that we want all guests to truly feel when you stay with us.

Our Dogs
Rocky, Rango and Bella are our healthy, friendly dogs whom are our friends, our security and are very much a part of life at Karibu.

While they generally stay behind the property, they are present on the premises. If you do have an allergy or are uncomfortable with dogs please let us know when you make a reservation so we can make the necessary preparations.
