Griffin Falls Camp in the Mabira Forest Reserve

So far in Uganda I had only visited cities like Kampala, Entebbe and Jinja, so when my friends asked me if I wanted to tag along to the Griffin Falls Camp in the Mabira Forest I happily accepted and Saturday morning we were on our way.

The camp is quietly located two hours drive from Kampala, by a small village called Wasswa, close to Jinja. There was not much to do there other than walking through the village, hiking to the Griffin Falls and the main activity which was ziplining. Costing 80usd I skipped the zipline(last time I did it it only cost 3usd in El Salvador), but I had a couple of nice walkes to the black water falls and got to see some beautiful birds and some red tailed monkeys which apparently are quite rare. The evening was spent playing cards and drinking Nile beers before going early to bed in my bivvy bag.

My Bivvy bag is super small and easy to set up!
