Mabira Forest Uganda Zip Lining 1 Day Tour Itinerary
0730 Hours: Depart Kampala for a two-and-a-half-hour drive to Mabira forest camp, where the Uganda’s largest zip line is located. The forest is about 44 km east of Kampala and about 8 kilometres off the Kampala-Jinja highway.
The 8 km dusty drive takes you through the large lugazi sugar cane plantation before you reach the camp, which is sandwiched by tall trees in Uganda’s largest natural forest. The camp was set up by the Mabira Forest Integrated Community Organisation to encourage ecotourism.
Upon arrival you proceed for a briefing session for zip lining by experienced zip-lining guides. Then next is a trek for 30 minutes to get to the starting point where there is a huge 12-metre tall tree with hinges on which you climb to get to the first zip line platform. (Note: your equipment can feel quite heavy on this walk). The highest platform is 40 meters so you get a breathtaking view of the forest.
The 250m line goes through ancient trees. It has five platforms with lines running above the tall trees and across River Musamya. You then bend your knees and squat, and then release yourself. The instructor gives you a just a little push to start.
High up in the canopy one is able to enjoy a view of the forest layers, mammals like grey cheeked Mangabeys and red tailed monkeys, birds like palm nut vultures, African fish eagles, great blue Turacos and the roaring griffin falls, making your zip a memorable day!
The hike back from the zip-line takes you past the beautiful Griffin Falls and back to the camp which offers accommodation, meals, mountain biking among others. Finishing the whole course takes about 3 hours of fun.
Enjoy lunch in Mabira Forest at the Griffin Falls Camp Restaurant. After Lunch, you will take a walk around the camp and given ample time to take pictures, return to the base to board the vehicle and depart for Kampala.
1800 Hours: Expect to arrive back in Kampala by 6.00 pm, drop-off at the hotel.
