Welcome to Gorilla African Guest House – Entebbe (Uganda)
Entebbe is a quaint rural town on the northern shores of the stunning Lake Victoria. It is also home to Uganda’s international airport, which is many visitors reason for staying here, however the town is worth visiting in it’s own right!
Gorilla African Guesthouse is a 10 minute drive from Entebbe International Airport. The guesthouse can arrange both pick-up and drop-off service to the airport which is always a reassuring service when arriving in a new country. The guesthouse is located on a rural street, filled with friendly locals and smiling children. The local minibus service or Matatu as they are known, is 2 minutes walk from the guesthouse and can take you into the nearby town, Entebbe town centre or even to Kampala, the capital city which is one hour away.
The small town of Kitooro has plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and bars and a Barclays bank which makes it a closer alternative to Entebbe for all the small necessities. Entebbe is slightly larger with a shopping mall, botanic garden and Wildlife Centre.
There are various room types to choose from at Gorilla African Guesthouse, with something to suit everyone! There are single rooms, double rooms, twin rooms , triple rooms and even two family rooms. The standard rooms are simple yet comfortable, with hot water shower, a sofa and a large bed with mosquito net. The veranda just outside these rooms provides a great place to chill in the afternoon and enjoy the sunset or chat to fellow travelers.
