I had the best time zip lining here. It was very reasonable for 6 zips. Climbing the tree was the most challenging part that gave me some palpitations but it really is easy. The zips are not really long but they are really fun. it...More

The staff accommodated us within 24 hours notice, including picking us up from Jinja, a meal, ziplining, and a forest walk. The guides are very safety conscious and friendly. Highly recommend. Cash only.
