We are practicing a form of sustainable agriculture called Permaculture - which means we try to be as eco-friendly as possible, with a big beautiful vegetable garden, lots herbs and flowers and some really cute chickens and ducks.
Located in a residential neighborhood, very relaxed and friendly.
We really were pleasantly surprised by the phenomenal hospitality bestowed upon us three upon our arrival at this piece of paradise.
Leslie, many thanks for helping make our first night in Uganda such a positive experience.
we are looking forward to our next visit and best of luck.
Leslie was a wonderful host! So welcoming and invited me to share an evening meal with her each week that I stayed; much appreciated! Really enjoyed the conversation and sharing of our varied experiences of working in Uganda. I also greatly valued hearing her experiences of working in other African countries and communities.
I have already written a review that would seem to have been lost! Leslie my host was wonderful! She was so welcoming and provided a hospitality unexpected in a B&B. It was a delight to also share some similar experiences of working in Uganda and I valued her experiences of also working in many other African countries. After the noise and chaos of Kampala, the accommodation was an absolute oasis of calm and tranquillity with the pleasure of playing with the three dogs and wandering through the gardens.
I had a great time staying at Leslie's place in Entebbe when I arrived to Uganda from New York. It was a beautiful home that left me feeling refreshed and rejuevenated. It was a treat to stay there and recover from jet lag before making my way to Kampala for the rest of my trip. She has several adorable dogs that were fun to play with, and I enjoyed seeing her permaculture farm. Jane, who helps manage the place, made me feel at home as well as the two other people who stayed with me. There many beautiful flowers and other plants there as well, and the location is stunning.
This was a wonderful lace to spend our first 2 nights in Uganda, and I recent to anyone wanting après relaxed introduction than Kampala city chaos. It's a beautiful tranquil setting with chickens, dogs and a beautiful useful garden. You won't get eggs for breakfast fresher than this anywhere. Leslie was warm, interesting and very helpful in organising a good and cheap driver for the next leg of our journey . Thank you x
Loved staying in this peaceful abode with Leslie, her husband, farm and animals! My friend and I were collected from the airport as planned, and dived straight into a comfortable bed in the guesthouse. A delicious breakfast with fresh passion fruit and coffee was served. Throughout our stay Leslie bent over backwards to make it help us out. She smoothed over many a mishap on my behalf - providing much needed local advice and factor 70 sunscreen! Lotte and I really enjoyed hearing about Leslie's interesting life and sharing our global health stories. It was an ideal place to begin our amazing trip in Uganda.
About the Host, Leslie
I have been living and working in Uganda since 1999, managing an HIV vaccine research project at Uganda's national health research institute in Entebbe. We practice permaculture at our home in Entebbe and love to share experiences (and herbs and eggs) with anyone who is interested. We have dogs, a cat and lots of chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, quails and turkeys- all of them co-existing peacefully with us and each other. We love living in Uganda and are happy to share information and insights on this most beautiful and aptly named 'Pearl of Africa'
