Sebei Cultural Experience

By Discover Sipi
These are one of the unique tribes living in the East of Uganda along the slopes of mount Elgon and ancient life of the Sebei cultures ranging from their social ,economic, and the their rule of administration. They belong to the kalenjin community whose origin is believed to have come from Abyssinian Highlands (Ethiopia). The Kalenjin clusters of people of today are descendants of migrants from the Nile River area of the Western Ethiopian highlands. One of their myths says they came originally from Msiri, a name for Egypt. They lived mainly under a chiefdom but due to the dominance of tribes they found in Uganda, they were influenced to create a kingdom which was formed up to date. With the help of our experienced storytellers, you will never regret your stay with us in Sipi.

      Unforgettable Uganda Roundtrip
      Discover Sipi organized a wholesome weekend in Sipi (hikes, coffee tour, sunset walk) followed by an adventorous 7-day Safari trip (Pian-Upe, Kidepo, Murchinson) for us 3. Not only did we see and got to know a lot of stunning Uganda but we also had a great blast with our guide William and our Driver Hillary. William customized the whole trip to our wishes and budget and answered any questions very quickly. He is also a great photographer, so we didn't need to take care not to miss a shot and could just relax and enjoy nature + wildlife. Cute surprises along the way were included too! I'm really glad to have come across Discover Sipi and recommend it 100%.

      Great experience!
      Discover Sipi has a very professional and accommodating approach to take you around Mount Elgon and Sipi Falls in the East of Uganda. I would definitely recommend them to organise your trip in the mountains and going to the falls: the guides are good, the food is very tasteful and the views are amazing!

      Fantastic company! Amazing tour!
      This trip with discover Sipi was incredible. William helped us design a bespoke itinerary and then carried out our plans efficiently and with excellent customer service. William and elvis were so organised and friendly. We did amazing activities like visiting the source of the Nile and a hike at Sipi falls. I would recommend this company to everyone looking for a weekend trip in Uganda!

      What a memorable experience i had. My first time to visit Sipi, Kapchorwa district became more memorable with Discover Sipi travel guides. They are very friendly, reliable and most importantly legitimate. They suggested me the hotel accom as well as the fees for all the amazing activities. They are very Helpful and generous to share information. I really enjoyed it. Kudos to the team spearheaded by Willam and his team Simon & Ezekiel. What are you waiting for, book now.

      Wonderful experience
      We had a fantastic time at Sipi Falls! William arranged everything for us, like the pick up in Kampala, the nice stay in Sipi and guided the hike through Sipi and the coffee tour. We really enjoyed our time!

      One step at a time...
      This was a well-organized 'expedition' for a group of five friends up the new Bushenyi Trail. William was easy to communicate with in advance on the particulars, and the guides, rangers, and porters did a good job motivating us and getting us up and down the mountain comfortably and safely. We all summitted this very pictaresque trail. Try it out!

      A great experience! Many different types of landscape, all with amazing views. The organisation was really good. The porters created a comfortable rest camp and the food was fresh and nice. Thanks again to William for the organisation!

      Amazing hike! Worth every penny and more!
      This was the most wonderful hike, with beautiful views and very pleasant and helpful tour guides. Upon arrival we could choose between short, long or extended hike. We chose the long hike of about 11-12 km. It was a long day, but it was marvelous and you didn't really feel that the kilometers passed by. The hike is a round (so you see new things along the entire hike), and you go a lot on quite flat or not very steep terrain, except for a few parts (in total maybe 25 minutes all over), which were necessary to reach the nicest parts of the waterfalls. Despite 11 km sounding long, it was completely fine, and we just adjusted the pace according to how tired we were, how hot the weather was etc. There are people selling water and fruit along the way, so it's also not necessary to pack tons of water for example. I have been many places in the world and on many hikes, and this was definitely one of the most amazing hikes I have done. People you meet on the way are also incredibly nice and welcoming, so there is not much to complain about (maybe just the hassle of getting there from Mbale, but my recommendation is to find a private car that would cost you between 70k-100k and avoid the eternal negotiations for a seat in a matatu (public taxi) that is usually very unsafe as well). 10/10 for views, very good communication, really nice tour guides and all over it was an amazingly spent day!

      An unforgettable experience
      What an adventure and fantastic experience to do the 4day hike on the top Mt. Elgon with William, to experience the incomparable landscape. William is such a humble guide. He was always in a good mood and no matter how strenuous it was - he is a master of motivation . I can only recommend everyone to explore the beauty of Mt. Elgon together with him.
