Waterfall - at Mabere ga Nyinamwiru caves in Fort Portal

A fun afternoon execursion, not too far from Fort Portal, is the Mabere ga Nyinamwiru caves and crater lake walk. The waterfall is part of the nature walk through the mythological caves. The name is gotten from the many stallictites on the cave roof which resemble breasts. An old tale from those parts tells of a princess whoses breasts were removed so that she could not feed her son. I don't tell the story half as well as our guide Edward so I recommend people enjoy this afternoon out and hear about it all from their guides.
