Why Choose Discover Sipi
Get to know me

We did with Discover Sipi 2 nature walks. 1 to the Sipi falls and 1 into Mount Elgon nationalpark. Both nature walks were amazing. The landscape and nature were beautiful, we saw different birds and stunning waterfalls. Our guide Ian was very friendly and he knew a lot of interesting facts. Our walk to the Sipi falls included all 3 impressive waterfalls, we saw a chamaleon and learned something about the community, such as their culture and farming. Our walk in Mount Elgon was very interesting. We came across a beautiful waterfall and walked up to an impressive view point. Discover Sipi is very spontaneous and they react quickly. We could not tell our arrival time on the first day, but after noticing them we arrived they only needed 15 minutes to send us our guide Ian. Ian also organised on the second day just in minutes a ride with boda-boda’s for us. We highly recommend doing activities with this competent tour operator.
Great communication from William from the get go. We had a short hike (3.5hr) to see all 3 falls – William was flexible to meet our timings, kept a good pace and overall the falls are incredible. Williams trusted assistant – Puppy – is also super cute!
My time in Sipi was my favourite during my travels in Uganda, I can highly recommend doing it with Discover Sipi. William is an amazing and very welcoming guide and a great photographer as well.
Great service. William and Simon made our trip to Sipi unforgetable. They even assisted us with getting to Sipi and travelling onwards after Sipi. I would recommend Discover Sipi to everyone. They go above and beyond for you!
Ich habe bei William eine 3 tägige Tour zum MT Elgon gebucht und noch eine Sipi Falls Besichtigung. Beides war sehr gut. Vorab hatte ich Kontakt zu William und die Kommunikation war super. Ee hat mich sehr gut beraten und war sehr hilfsbereit. Vorab der Tour hat er mich in Mbale abgeholt. Außerdem hat er für mich einen Rücktransport nach Kampala nach der Tour organisiert. Die Bergtour war sehr schön und mit tollen Eindrücken, guten Essen und schönen Aussichten. Die Wasserfall Tour hat Simon mit mir durchgeführt. Er war sehr nett und hat mir viel über die Landwirtschaft und die Menschen dort erzählt und gezeigt. Die Wasserfälle sind wirklich sehr schön und sehenswert. insgesamt sehr nette Leute und tolle Erlebnisse!
I and my friends visited for a community walk and a hike to the three Sipi Falls, I must say it was amazing!! William was very welcoming, very knowledgeable about the local culture, the adventure activities plus he made the hike so easy. We ended up doing Abseiling as recommended by William and it was so amazing. I really would recommend Discover Sipi anytime!!
10/10 experience with discover sipi. From accomodation to activities to transport, everything was perfectly arranged. Along going with the best guidance of tourguide William, who told the most interesting stories and made the best photos and aftermovie. Would recommend no one else but William to book for your sipi tour!
