Besides accommodation, Griffin Falls Camp also offers:

Forest Walks:

Our guides are trained to give you a comprehensive forest experience. We offer forest walks for any skill level, from a long and adventurous trek into the back country to a gentle meandering stroll through our well maintained trails. It’s difficult not to run into one of the 3 species of monkeys native to the forest on your 30 minute walk to Griffin Falls. You will also see rich populations of birds and butterflies and giant, ancient trees.

Cultural tour:

The cultural tour takes you through all facets of human life around the forest. See how the local gin is distilled in the forest and learn the importance of the ecosystem to the health of the local population. Find out about the history of Mabira forest and how it is used to benefit the local community while maintaining its pristine state. Finish with a beautiful view at a hilltop school.


Our birding experts can take you on a full or half day of forest walking to see many of the 315 birds that Mabira Forest has to offer. You may encounter the Blue Turaco or the Black and White Casqued Hornbill or the playful Guinea Foul.

Environmental Education:

Environmental education is a major component of MAFICOs mission. Griffin Falls Camp is appropriate for any level of education. We have programs designed for primary and secondary schools as well as guides capable of assisting with professional scientific research. We can accommodate and educate large groups.

Mountain Biking:

Take your bike and ride through our forest trails and neighboring communities. You can choose to be guided or to explore independently. (Unfortunately, bike rentals are currently unavailable).

  • Six zip lines over the rainforest canopy, crossing a river twice. Don't just go for the ziplining though - I went on an amazing nature walk, saw butterflies, birds and monkeys and learnt lots about...  more »
  • Wonderful experience & the guides are pretty friendly! I’d super recommend but if you’re Ugandan don’t forget your ID so they can identify you as one & you don’t have to pay the foreigner fee.  more »
  • Daring. Great place for a challenge. If you want to feel like a bird, it's the place to be. BUT, it is only great for Zip lining.
  • Found in the middle of a thick rain forest (mabira forest). The best place for zip lining. Five ziplines so high in the canopy..... So interesting and audacious
