Zip lining is an activity that makes you behave like monkeys thus giving you unforgettable experience in the Mabira Forest which is located 44 kilometers East of Kampala City outside of Lugazi town. The first of its kind in Uganda, canopy super skyway is a canopy “zip-line” system that sends you soaring between the tallest trees in the rainforest. While in the canopy, one is able to enjoy a clear view of the forest layers, mammals such as; grey cheeked mangabeys, red tailed monkeys and many more including various bird species such as palm nut vultures, African fish eagles, great blue turacos and the roaring griffin falls thus making your Zip a memorable day.

The activity starts by passing through the ancient trees being led by experienced Sky Captains or Sky guides across a network of 5 zip-lines that stretches 250 meters across River Musamya. Using strict International safety standards with imported climbing gears and art high ropes from America, participants are belayed up the first tree, brought through the whole system and repelled on a 78m diagonal zip. Zip-line activities are done from 8am in the morning to 1pm and from 2pm to 6pm daily with a minimum of three people.

Mabira forest Super Sky way is the most interesting zip line in Uganda and as per now it is best zip lining in East Africa which is ran by a team that’s well-versed in giving visitors one of the best experiences of zip lining. These Sky Captains do a very good job about your security during the experience at the canopy. You will have the opportunity to fly through the rainforest canopy and experience a bird’s eye view of the lively forest below.

The hike back from the skyway takes you past the beautiful Griffin Falls and back to the camp which offers accommodation, meals, mountain biking among others. The activity takes a maximum of 4 hours. This is a one day activity that you can add to your tour once you are in Uganda. Griffin Falls Camp was created from several different donations corrected by Mabira Forest Integrated Community Organization in order to encourage eco tourism and generate income to fund future projects.
