Sezibwa Falls, a place of wonder and legend, is named after the Luganda phrase "sizibwa kkubo," meaning "my path cannot be blocked." According to Baganda legend, this unique site is believed to have been birthed by a woman named Nakkungu Tebatuusa, who was married to Nsubuga Sebwato. The story goes that while on her way to Kavuma Bukunja, she gave life to these rivers.
This fascinating excursion offers you the opportunity to explore the 40-foot gorge that leads to the falls. As you ascend, the curator regales you with the captivating legend of the twin rivers that emerge from Sezibwa Falls. One of these rivers, Kato, finds its way into the mighty Nile, while the other, Kana, flows into Lake Kyoga. It is here that Sekabaka Mwanga, the king, would traditionally bestow royal appointments.
After your royal appointment, delve into the nearby caves, where you might encounter locals seeking blessings from the mediums. In these mystical surroundings, you may even come across the siblings of these spiritual seekers, the pythons, or residents from far and wide. These individuals offer eggs as offerings and indulge in the local 'tonto' brew while lighting a sacred smoke to connect with the spirit mediums.
This extraordinary experience can be combined with an adventurous ziplining adventure at Griffin Falls in Mabira Forest. Explore the natural beauty, legends, and excitement that these two remarkable sites have to offer.
