    This was my third visit to Sipi Falls, but it’s always beautiful.

    We were staying in Mbale, so we hired a private driver and went to Sipi just for a day. We arrived at Crow’s Nest around 10am and went on a 2-3 hour short hike to see the first waterfall. The walk was great… absolutely gorgeous with the banana trees, coffee trees and mountain as a backdrop. Most of the hike was fairly easy, but the way back was a bit steep. When we arrived back to Crow’s Nest, we had a simple lunch there before heading back to Mbale (just about a 45 minute drive).

    Be sure to hire a guide at the beginning of your hike because you do walk through people’s property and the guides have a program where they give a portion of their fees to a community fund.
