To make a reservation, email the manager, Ronald Ssenyondwa, with your dates and times  of arrival and departure at ronald@hoteleq.com, cc’ing opm@irbh.com. Please reference the Global Energy and Water Exchanges Project of The World Climate Research Programme to receive the appropriate rate, and state that you will be paying your bill directly to the hotel. This will save time at check-in. You can pay with Visa, Master Card, and American Express, but note that there is a 5% surcharge for payment with credit cards. Note that paying through the hotel website’s online reservation system may result in a higher rate.

The hotel is a few miles from the Entebbe International Airport. The hotel offers airport transfer at a charge of $10 USD per person/trip. Arrangements must be made in advance, so we recommend mentioning in your reservation email that you will need transportation to and from the airport.

Uganda requires that you have a visa and a passport valid for six months beyond the date of entry. Visas are available at the Entebbe Airport upon arrival for $100 US. You will also need proof of a yellow fever vaccination.
Visas can also be obtained from the Embassy of the Republic of Uganda. It is recommended that travelers obtain visas to Uganda in advance of travel, particularly those who will arrive via land. If you plan to obtain your visa upon landing at Entebbe Airport, you should confirm in advance that your airline will allow you to board without a visa.
