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.

ViaVia Entebbe was founded at the end of 2016 by Pieter, Lobke and Steven, finding the right Belgian and Ugandan ingredients to shake the cocktail until it bustles, inspires and invites.
ViaVia is a meeting place in Entebbe for locals, expats and travelers. The aim is to be an open space for innovation, for social and sustainable entrepreneurship, a place for musicians to jam, a space for poets to perform, for children to play, birds to fly and monkeys to eat fruits, a place where you can forge plans, where people can create, dream and try out … ViaVia Entebbe is embedded in the local environment and reinforces the community.
