Karibu was founded in May 2012 by Leslie (from Corsica) and Kevin (from New Zealand) and quickly established itself as a popular choice amongst travellers with a reputation for service, style, good food and cleanliness.
With a background in managing African Safari Lodges, Luxury European Hotels and operating Safaris in Uganda, we understand what is important during your stay – and that it is the little things that count
At Karibu we love to cook and take pride in the meals that serve. Our Mediterranean-inspired menu is prepared fresh each day and with care by our team of trained chefs. We source as many fruits and vegetables as we can from our own organic garden and the trees around the grounds. Most ingredients are procured locally and combined with a few imported treats to create our menu.
Karibu’s swimming pool has been designed to blend into the natural surroundings of the indigenous garden.
Screened from the rest of the hotel by Palm, Hibiscus, Avocado and Mango trees, the pool with its constant natural rock waterfall is a welcome respite after a long flight or a busy safari. The pool even has its own seating and floating table – perfect for a sun-downer in the temperate water.
Upstairs in the hotel is the secluded Spa Room, complete with professional massage table, manicure and pedicure facilities.
Karibu’s on-call spa-therapist was trained in the UK and offers a range of massages, reflexology, manicures and pedicures.
Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
