Hellen, the landlady, is most committed to European standards of professional housekeeping which is a reason why so many of her guests keep coming back to her place when they travel in Uganda or come to the capital Kampala for business.
She speaks English and some regional African languages. Her son knows some German.
Most of the guests are international, mainly from Europe and many of them come with their families.
What they all have in common is the appreciation of the high standards of security, the peace and quiet, the wonderful garden and the unique view on the huge Murchison Bay of Lake Victoria.
The large variety of birds coming to the well-kept garden inspires a truly exotic atmosphere and makes it a paradise for birdwatchers.

The Guest House is located off Entebbe Road, about halfway between Entebbe and Kampala up on the beautiful hillside of Kitende.
There are four bedrooms and a living room with a verandah for the guests.
