Located in Mukono about 35km east of Kampala City; the falls are on Ssezibwa River with a source in the wetlands between Lake Victoria and Lake Kyoga West of Buikwe District. From Buikwe the river flows northwards through Mukono into Lake Kyoga in Kayunga District. The water flows down a ridge for a height of about 7 meters. The flow of the water down the steep ridged stones results in a magnificent sound of soothing water.
The falls are most spiritual and cultures centres for the native who flock to site in hundreds for blessings in the form of wealth, love, children, business and fortunes. The site is also believed to have healing power.The blessing ceremonies are performed by a traditional healer around the site.
Local folk believe that the two rivers Ssezibwa and Bwanda were born by a woman on her way to Kavuma Bukunja when she experienced labour pains. Nakkungu Tebatuusa whose husband was called Nsubuga Sebwato gave birth to twins in form of water. Sezibwa flowed west, passing many obstacles hence deriving its name, while Bwanda flowed towards Nyenga in Eastern Uganda to the mothers’ homeland.
