Overview & Features

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.

  1. Andrew B Wiltshire says:

    We had a really wonderful view of the middle waterfall (the ‘son’; the ‘father’ being the first and the ‘mother’ being the uppermost of the three) – and could sit at our door and watch the water cascade down, seemingly in slow motion. At night we could sit outside and listen to the roar of the water and stare at the brilliant stars.

    The staff members are friendly and helpful.
    The food was delicious and while it is a fixed menu they catered for my special dietary needs.
    The walks from this place are beautiful. The one to the middle and upper falls is better than the more famous walk to the lower (greatest) falls. On the upper walk it’s really worth continuing up over the top falls and sweeping back to the village in a round circuit; a great walk.
    You need a guide for these walks and the lodge have members of staff who double up as guides. They all seem to be excellent; friendly, attentive and helpful. Our guide Wycliffe is highly recommended.
    My only comment about this place is that the room, though perfectly adequate and still good, by general African standards; for this class of place is probably due for an update soon.
    But this is a really good choice in Sipi.
