hire a taxi and put the driver up for the night (if you have a small group like we did) to make it more cost effective and easy in terms of travel to get there. amazing view from the hotel, good food, and amazing local guides, comfy beds and warm-ish showers.. This is the closest I've felt to literally being... More

The resort is nice, the food is ok. The rooms are good but dark and with a cold light bulb. I would recommend to get warm light bulbs. We had no bulb in our bathroom, and my friend no bulb at the entrance of the room. No problemo, they brought other bulbs within 5 mins. Very nice, but it would... More

My friend and me went on a 4-day-trip from Kampala to Sipi Falls / Mount Elgon and stayed 2 nights at the marvellous Sipi Falls Resort. We especially enjoyed having breakfast or tea in the garden with the stunning view of one of the falls and the whole area. Jaliet was very friendly and helful. We stayed in the family... More

But we were told that since there was a bicycle rally or something they could not accommodate us. Anyways we move to this place and trust me when I say this, it did perfecr justice... More

beautiful location overlooking the falls Friendly and helpful staff. Chalets are clean though a little basic. Warm water in an outside shower. Chalets are cool at night as the wind whistles through the bamboo walls, so the blanket on the bed ensured a restful nights sleep. Meals were generous useful local produce. Local coffee was wonderful. One night wasn't enough.

We had originally booked to stay in a nearby lodge but were put off by being told that the only spare accommodation was in a dormitory, even though we had booked weeks before. So we moved to Sipi Falls closeby. Here we were offered halfboard in one of the well-kept cottages other guests have mentioned for almost the same price... More

This was one of our basic accomodations in Uganda, but we were pleastly suprised with our nice looking bamboo banda with a bathroom with shower and compost toilet. The views from the garden are excellent and the food was also very nice. We also did a day hike and had lunch in a homestead, which I can recommend to do... More

Perched on the cliff with a great view of the main falls, this hotel offers private, self contained thatched cottages and a very relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were spacious with individual compost toilets. Hot water was quickly available by arrangement (they had to light a fire) and the rooms were surrounded by pleasant gardens, There was a shortage of electricity... More
