DAY 1: KAMPALA - SIPI
We drive towards Sipi above Jinja and Mbale looking gradually over Mount Elgon (4300 m). By early afternoon, before we reach Sipi we drive up the mountain road and get a good impression of the plateaus, which is the setting for the three impressive Sipi waterfalls. In the afternoon we can relax and have time to enjoy a drink and the view of the sunset.

DAY 2: SIPI - HIKE
After your relaxed breakfast, we gather together to start the hike and you can choose between a short or longer route to the waterfall through fruit plantations and villages. One waterfall is perfect for taking a quick shower and you can even enjoy a cold swim. Another hike for seven hours takes five waterfalls, a cave and most beautiful scenery passing through plenty of villages and fruit and coffee plantations.

All journey times are close approximations, as you can never quite guarantee what will happen on the African roads… We could be in for a bumpy ride on parts of the route (which adds to the excitement of being on safari!); we may encounter road-works and of course, there are the photo stops. Either way, you can be certain that although you may be seated for long periods at times during the trip, you will be passing some spectacular countryside and there will always be something of interest to see along the way!
