The Ultimate Zip Line Experience in Mabira Forest

Blog thumbnail

Experiencing the Mabira Forest canopy just makes you behave like monkeys! The first of its kind in Uganda. The Mabira Forest Canopy Super Skyway is a canopy “zip-line” system that sends you soaring between the tallest trees in the rain forest. Located 44kms East of Kampala City, outside of Lugazi town at the Griffin falls camp, the skyway makes a great day. Mabira forest Super Skyway is the most thrilling zip line in Uganda and by far the best zip lining in East Africa which is run by a team that’s well-versed in giving visitors one of the best experiences of ziplining. These Sky Captains do a very good job of making sure you have a safe and fun experience! You will have the opportunity to fly through the rainforest canopy and experience a bird’s eye view of the lively forest below. At Mabira forest, you can have the best experience be it in a group of friends or individually.

You are led to pass through ancient trees by experienced Sky Captains / 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.

High up in the canopy, one is able to enjoy a view of the forest layers, mammals, 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 skyway takes you past the beautiful Griffin Falls and back to the camp which offers accommodation, meals, mountain biking among others. It takes a maximum of 4 hours. This is a one-day activity that you can add to your safari/tour once you are in Uganda.

Have you ever wondered what primates and birds find fascinating about the forest canopy? Mabira forest in Uganda is a pioneer in canopy exploration, where thick branches serve as platforms for the adventurous traveler, more than 100 feet above the jungle floor. If you’re wondering why you’d want to head to the top of a tree just to look around, remember that 90% of Uganda’s primates and bird species in rainforests live in the upper levels of the trees. When you explore that far off the ground, the view is spectacular and is something you’ll never forget!
