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 now have both our new cottages open, Anient and Kapsurur. With private views of the waterfall, these spacious new cottages are the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and to have a romantic weekend away. Features include a large king sized bed, a second twin bed for family or friends, a double shower with views of the falls, lounge area and veranda. For more information look at our accommodation page.
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!! Currently we do not have Mountain Bikes for hire, however if you are a keen biker with your own bike then bring it along and we'll be happy to show you the routes!!
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!
