This is a unique experience - lots of art, flowers, gardens, birds, monkeys and water in a very rural setting, just off the Entebbe - Kampala road. Janet, the owner with her husband Andreas, runs a tight ship, and service is very good. Thanks!

Incredible Place
My 4 sons and I looked for a place to stay for our weekend experience in Entebbe to visit the Ngambe Island sanctuary. Malakai was more than a place to stay it was itself an experience that my sons and I will never forget, from the family cottage, the environment, the pool, the restaurant and the staff. Beautiful very original place lovingly cared for and serviced by family owners. We’ve already picked our next cottage for our next stay in Entebbe
