Sipi Falls is home to a series of three spectacular waterfalls, some of the best Arabica coffee in the world, world class mountain biking and beautiful sunsets! Sipi falls sits just outside Mount Elgon National Park which is the home of an incredible number of bird species as well as being the largest volcanic base in the world.
Sipi Falls is a place to enjoy the challenges of the mountains, and also a place just to relax and unwind in a cool peaceful climate.
The Lodge is set amongst 17 acres of private grounds, which include the 80m Kapsurur Falls (the second of the three Sipi waterfalls), several caves and peaceful gardens to explore. The Lodge is run with only a small number of guests at any one time making it a very 'home away from home' experience and we pride ourselves on the personal service we offer our guests.
Sipi River Lodge offers a variety of accommodation and activities, all located within walking distance of the Lodge, including coffee tours, hiking, rock climbing, abseiling and trout fishing. We also organise Mt. Elgon expeditions. Find out more information on our activities pages.
Whether you are here to enjoy the challenges of the great outdoors or simply to relax and take in the sweeping views and abundant birdlife, Sipi River Lodge promises you a memorable stay.
We have recently finished a major extension within the main lodge. This extension gives us more space for dining and overall a more balanced feel to the interior. We've re-tiled the floor and increased the size of the bar giving us more space for our ever increasing whisky collection! Finally we opened up the fire place so it's open on two sides meaning you get the same great atmosphere wherever you sit
Other new developments at Sipi are that we've realised the amazing Mountain Biking trails we have right on our doorstep. There's something for everyone, from 20min family rides to long downhill single-track routes, with some challenging climbs back up - or if you like a boda-boda pick up to save the legs!!
We have just bought 10 brand new mountain bikes from South Africa and are busy getting things set up for what we believe will truly be a world class biking destination. Follow us on facebook to see the latest developments, but we hope to have the bike business fully operational mid way through 2015.
Last year we started our own coffee plantation - we planted almost 1000 saplings which we hope in about 3 years time will start to be harvested into our very own Sipi River Lodge Coffee. We still roast and grind our own local coffee which has been ranked as the best coffee in Uganda by more than one coffee expert!
