The tour begins with your arrival at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda. You will be met and transferred to Karibu Guesthouse, a short drive away. Overlooking Lake Victoria and formerly a presidential residence, the guesthouse has everything you need to relax and unwind after your journey. There is a swimming pool, lounge and bar plus high-speed Wi-Fi and, with only seven suites at Karibu, you are assured of personalised attention. Food at the in-house restaurant has a distinctly Mediterranean flavour – you could start with creamy pumpkin and thyme soup and boeuf bourguignon with gnocchi a la Romana and perhaps finish off with their Nutella and mango panna cotta. Karibu means ‘welcome’ in Swahili and this is indeed a fitting welcome to Africa.
