“Very beautiful area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

I did a 5 hour guided hike (village walk) from top to bottom of all 3 waterfalls. Great experience. I went from Jinja to see the waterfalls - well worth the 4-5 hour matatu drive.

“Sipi Falls Excursion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

I was teaching a workshop in Mbale and decided to take a short trip to visit Sipi Falls. It was about an hour outside of Mbale but the scenic views while driving are very impressive. The mountains and valleys are breathtaking. We had only a short time to visit the falls, but in less than 2 hours we were able to see 2 of the 3 falls. The site offers wonderful photo opportunities and the primary falls lets you walk down beneath it in sort of a rock shelter area. It was well-worth the trip to see the beautiful falls.

I liked the fact that the big waterfall is accessible for most people, even though it is very steep in places. Was with a group of students who sneered at the poles they were all given but quickly appreciated how vital they were. Beautiful walks to and behind other falls inside caves.
