You will be led to pass through these trees by experienced Sky guides across a network of 5 zip-lines that stretch 250 meters across River Musamya. While up in the canopy you are able to enjoy the view of the forest layers, mammals like grey-cheeked mangabeys and red-tailed monkeys, birds’ species like African fish eagles, great blue turacos and also the roaring griffin falls thus making your zip lining a memorable day. You hike back from the skyway going past the beautiful Griffin Falls and back to the base camp and this entire adventure takes up to a maximum of 4 hours.

Have lunch, then you proceed with your journey back to Kampala or airport to catch your flight back home.
