Sipi Falls In Eastern Uganda

Sipi Falls is one of the magnificent adorable natural features that is located in Kapchorwa district in the eastern part of Uganda. Visitors landing at Entebbe international airport in Uganda will need to travel on road another 277 kilometers from Kampala city to Sipi Fall. Remember, that Kampala city is just 35 kilometers away from Entebbe International airport.

The Falls are situated in the foothills of Mount Elgon adamant volcano nearly at the border of Uganda with the republic of Tanzania. The word Sipi originated from the Sabiny word called Sep which means a wild banana plant that usually grows along the banks of the river. This means that the areas surrounding the Sipi Falls are covered by this wild plant. This plant is also of medical significance to the people of this area they use it for treating malaria and measles.

The name falls was derived from the hot springs that fall on river Sipi which moves down the Mt Elgon slopes. As it pours down from a high altitude, the river is interfaced with cliffs forming different rapids and falls and it contours to pour the water to Lake Kyoga. And of course, Sipi Falls were formed as the result of the cliffs that formed that water in the river to move over it creating waterfalls Sipi with powerful force.
