A friend and I stayed here on three separate nights in our two week trip. I can't speak highly enough about all aspects of our stay. The menu was big, well-priced and the food delicious. The breakfast was free and tasty. The laundry service was affordable and efficient. The gardens are delightful and relaxing - full of birds and plants....

We stayed for one night upon our arrival in Entebbe. Having just arrived from a very long international flight, it was great having just a 15 minute ride from the airport. We found the room to be adequate, the grounds were beautiful and the food was good. We enjoyed watching the many birds and seeing the gardens. The pool looked...

Timely pick up at the airport, well situated to visit the Wildlife Education Center and Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary Island. Lovely pool with lots of birds and lizards around. The grilled tilapia from Lake Victoria is outstanding and the Boma was the first place that I had a fabulous Ugandan avacado. They have laundry service and you can refill your the...

The hotel is very peaceful, and the rooms are lovely, and people friendly. Birds everywhere, and a drink by the pool is a treat. The wifi is pretty poor, though, and the food could really do with being much better (dinner - food is tasteless and tasted quite old, breakfast - muffins are dry and fruit limp). It's quite expensive...

As many travelers have indicated, the Boma is a good choice for stop overs as you begin or end your Uganda experience. We spent a night at the beginning and end of our visit and found everything to be very satisfactory. The staff were very helpful and efficient.We were traveling to Mozambique later in our trip and had packed clothes...

Boma is a boutique hotel with carefully designed and managed facilities. The rooms have terraces and you sit in middle of trees and flowers, and hundreds of birds live on the compound. It is just lovely. Water is heated by solar energy (sufficient to take a shower). All windows have mosquito screens and the king size bed is protected with...

Our booking agent Africa Travel Resource recommended this hotel for our first and last night of our Uganda adventure . Certainly a good choice . High walls around the property and lots of security made us feel very safe in Entebbe. The hotel is more a country style home and has decent rooms , a bar and restaurant . The...

Under advice from our tour company, we used The Boma as a day room stop. We came in from our treks at 10 am, but our international flight wasn't leaving until nearly mid-night...so we took a day room here in between. The location is terrific being so close to the airport. The property is nice with beautiful surrounding and a...
