Sipi Falls Explorers

was founded in 2018 by Achami Kevin, born and raised near Sipi Falls. Our goal is to offer the best services to our clients and share the beautiful nature and surroundings that Sipi Falls has to offer.

Our activities benefit the local community by generating employment opportunities for tour guides to give back to the community (sustainable tourism) by emphasizing them to produce local products, such as crafts, shoes, hats, and coffee among others.

Through traveling, which is one of my hobbies, I gained experience and more knowledge. Visiting most of Uganda’s tourist attractions helped me to influence the young upcoming tour guides. Currently, we have several tour guides who are passionate, informed, hospitable, and welcoming.

Sipi Falls Waterfalls

 

Sipi Falls consists of three main waterfalls, which are located on the foothills of Mount Elgon in Kapchorwa district, Uganda. The Sipi Falls are approximately 277 kilometers away from Kampala, the capital city of Uganda which is strategically located with good transport network and good accommodation facilities.

Sipi Falls sprawling at the edge of mount Elgon with beautiful views of the hills, plains and valleys. It binds a beautiful scenery of the region, which attracts most of the tourists, at an elevation of 1779 meters above sea level.

The source of the Sipi river originates on Mount Elgon as it flows down the hills while joining up with some small tributaries making it to increase the water level which makes the sipi river to a permanent river throughout the year. The water levels increase drastically during rainy season. On its way down to the valley, the sipi river drops in three major drops creating beautiful waterfalls ranging from 65 to 100 meters, and finally poring its water into Lake Kyoga.
