Certificate of Excellence
Our clean, safe and spacious guesthouse is located in a Victorian villa in the calm outskirts of downtown Kampala. ICU guesthouse is situated in a 10 bedroom house with a lovely garden, big veranda, comfortable living room, dining area, and roof-top terrace equipped with couches for lounging, WiFi, a bar, BBQ and cinema. Our restaurant offers a combination of Ugandan and Western style meals and provides breakfasts with Western-style bread, fruits, different spreads, coffee and tea. We accommodate both short term and long term international guests, which creates a great hub for travel-planning and sharing experiences. Additionally our own travel agency Grassrootz Adventures combines culture and nature and offers affordable tours to community based tourism sites all around Uganda. Also we are connected to a wide range of long term and short term volunteer opportunities in different fields and locations. Plenty of opportunities to explore possibilities for your staying in Uganda. Please inform us if you want to be picked up from the airport or any other location in Uganda, so we can arrange you comfortable transportation to Kampala. In case you are not familiar with the city we offer City Tours with experienced guides who will show you around different parts of Kampala. To introduce you to the public transport system, where to get your groceries, a SIM-card and other things you'll need during your stay.
