The upscale, boutique Hotel No. 5 is the ideal respite to either begin or end your adventure through Uganda. Located in the pleasant suburb of Entebbe, there’s no better place to replenish and refresh after a long flight or a week of gorilla trekking and game drives.
Perfect for an overnight stay, Hotel No. 5 affords every creature comfort and pre-empts all needs. Spa treatments, poolside lounging, top-tier dining and modern gym facility ensure that your short stay is comfortable. The quaint, luxury rooms exude an air of tranquillity, aided by the balcony views overlooking the lush garden and glistening pool, providing a calm atmosphere in which to fully relax.
The small town of Entebbe sits on the shores of the majestic Lake Victoria. Hotel No. 5 makes it easy to explore on foot or by ‘bodas bodas’ (local motorbike). Filled with craft markets and local tailor shops, it’s the perfect point to pick up a few souvenirs to commemorate your travels. You might not go on game drives, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see any wildlife. Visit the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre and the Ngamba Island Chimp Sanctuary to get up-close to chimpanzees or take a cruise down the Mwamba swamp to spot the elusive shoebill bird. And of course, you can’t leave Entebbe without taking a sunrise or sunset cruise on the lustrous lake, watching the first or last rays of light on the horizon.
