3 Days Sipi Falls Tour – Eastern Uganda
Day 1: Ssezibwa falls – Source of the Nile – transfer to Sipi Falls
To beat the morning traffic, you will rise early and after your breakfast set off. Your first stop will be Ssezibwa falls; a traditional cultural site for the Baganda. Here your guide will take you through the cultural significance which originates from the legendary history of the place.
Driving through sugar cane plantations, tea plantations, you will have lunch at the source of the mighty river Nile, and later on be transferred to Sipi Falls for the night. You will stay in a simple, but nice self-contained cottage. From the resort you have beautiful views over the valley and one of the waterfalls.
Day 2: Whole day Sipi Falls
Prepare yourself for a beautiful day. After breakfast, choose to go on a 3-hour or – for the real adventurers – 7-hour hike. A local guide accompanies you on your hike to explain flora, fauna and culture.
Return to the lodge for lunch, dinner and relaxation.
Day 3: Coffee experience – transfer to Kampala / Airport.
After a rich breakfast you’ll be ready for a fantastic cultural experience of coffee farming. The tour starts with a walk around the local area to see the coffee plantations to learn a little about the life of a coffee plant. If you’re here during the harvesting season (usually around September) then you can also help pick and wash the coffee.
After the coffee tour experience, you will return to the resort, freshen up and head back to the airport.
