INTERVIEW: Sipi Valley Resort could be the perfect place for you while in Kapchorwa

 

One of the challenges still faced by Uganda’s tourism industry is a lack of investment in tourism infrastructure especially both by government and the private sector.

This leaves few of them in several top destinations in the country that then charge outrageous fees because of lack of competition.  

Sipi falls, in the towering hills of Kapchorwa is one such a place that has for long faced a challenge with accommodation facilities, but the trend is changing now with new lodges cropping up, like Sipi Valley Resort.

Pamela Amia spoke to the lodge’s current manager Grace Mugabi during a visit to the facility.
