this place is hidden in the middle of the mabira forest but its worth hnting for it because the falls are nice to view and you also take a walk in the forest.

Stayed at Griffin falls camp. Basic accommodation but over priced. 10000 UGX for a basic room. They charge 30000 UGX for a 2 hr forest walk which I should say is a rip off. You see nothing except for fire ants, fungi and a couple...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.

Griffin Falls is East Africa's only ziplining experience, and it does not disappoint. I've been back twice - once for a day trip in 2014 when it first opened, and again for an overnight camping and ziplining trip for my birthday in 2015. You drive...More
