Summary

Dear Guests,

when traveling to Uganda, the city of Entebbe is most probably your gate to this wonderful country. Right at the heart of the city, ViaVia is unmistakably the coziest option to start your long-awaited trip. We also offer a wide collection of tissues for tears of goodbye when heading back home.

ViaVia sure is an affordable and cosy alternative for your overnight stay. Add our top-notch hammocks, dazzling garden and delicious healthy food to the mix, and you have a truly heartwarming experience that’s very hard to beat.

Our notorious campfires make the ideal meeting place for people from across the globe. And while we have an excellent internet connection at the bar, reception and restaurant, our large population of birds doesn’t need any 4G to twitter twit all day long. ViaVia is a home away from home, but then slightly better! We even have romantic sunsets on request.

Head to our Facebook page to stay tuned for the latest ViaVia news!

Café/Resto

From freshly made smoothies and local beers to some good old Ugandan coffee: our beloved bar has it all.

On today’s menu you will always find fresh and healthy food, spiced with world flavors. Start the day with our signature hearty breakfast, have lunch and get surprised by our international and Ugandan cuisine.

If you’re lucky, you can share dessert with the resident monkeys playing in the trees while you’re relaxing on our outside terrace or in one of our hammocks.

Hotel

With 9 rooms overlooking the garden, all self-contained with hot tub and a private terrace, we offer outstanding quality for only 50 USD. Our pristine laundry service and luggage storage solutions make for an even smoother holiday experience and thanks to our great internet connection, your dear followers won’t have to miss a single tweet.

Traveling on a tight budget? Try the dormitory or pick a spot in our spacious green garden under a mango or jackfruit tree to set up your tent or to park your overland car! Prices from 5 to 20 USD.

How to get there

Follow the main road from the airport. Take a left turn after you have passed the second Shell fuel station (the one right next to Total) on your left side. You will see the first sign post on your left side at Mayor’s’ Garden ( Before you pass another Total Fuel Station). From there you follow the sign posts. ViaVia Entebbe is just 2 minutes (800m) ahead.
