Plunge into the beauty of Sipi Falls

Sipi Falls is located in east Uganda and northwest of Mount Elgon rise in a series of massive basalt cliffs, often several kilometres in length, over which the mountain’s rivers plunge as beautiful waterfalls. Here we stay at Lacam Lodge that’s built on slopes with breathtaking views of the Sipi Falls.

  1. Mara & Cas (The Netherlands)

    (Read detailed review) Dutch language review: We hebben een geweldige tijd in Uganda gehad. Full African experience met werkelijk alles er op en er aan: ontzettend veel dieren gezien, prachtige natuur – van jungle tot woestijnachtige savanne -, oneindig veel bumpy gravel roads, hele mooie lieve mensen ontmoet en overal begroet met een glimlach van oor tot oor.

    Kara-Tunga had alles heel goed geregeld: bij aankomst stond de Toyota Land Cruiser inclusief camping gear op ons te wachten (links rijden was even wennen) en vanaf dat moment hebben we ons geen seconde verveeld met ons custom-made uur-tot-uur programma. Volgend jaar weer!

  2. Vera Rustema (The Netherlands)

    (Read the original review on Facebook) We had an amazing time in Karamoja staying at Kara-Tunga. Friendly staff, nice rooms and lovely local food!! The place felt like coming home after the first part of our trip through Uganda.

    We started our trip in Karamoja visiting the annual cultural festival and got the chance to experience real Karamojong culture. The day after the festival we visited the Kraal to spent the night with the shepherds. They gave us real Karamojong names and told us stories about their culture. It was really special. We also visited a local village to join the ‘Sunday’ dance with the villagers and saw how they were spending their Sunday afternoon.

    Besides visiting Karamoja we also visited the rest of Uganda with Kara-Tunga. (thank you Theo for being our guide!) We did amongst other things, a boda boda tour in Kampala, rafting in Jinja and visited the national parks Kidepo, Murchison and Kibale forest. If you want to see real nature with beautiful views you must definitely visit Kidepo.

    Thank you Kara-Tunga for one of the best holidays and learning us about the culture of Karamoja. We will definitely come visit you again. Uganda is a beautiful and safe country with friendly people.
