A trip into the Rwenzoris is an exhilarating and rewarding experience but one, which must be planned. Those who have climbed this mountain range have promised to come back. If you are an excellent hiker, looking for a lifetime adventure, please make your reservation now. For more information on reservations, click hereReservations guideline. for Rwenzori Mountaineering

 It is not just the Rwenzoris alone that you hike in Uganda, there is the famous Mount Elgon National Park. At Mount Elgon National Park, mountaineering can be experienced on this volcanic mountain which is (4,321 m), the 4th highest mountain in East Africa, located in the eastern part of Uganda on the border with Kenya. The park boundaries contain 1147 Sq. km of mountain. Most of this area is covered with typical afro-montane vegetation, complete with giant groundsels and bamboo forest. Many travellers find Mt. Elgon an exciting alternative to some of the more strenuous climbs in East Africa. It has many of the same attractions, with milder climate and lower elevation. Climbing the peaks requires no special equipment or technical climbing experience. It is possible to summit the mountain in as little as three days, but slightly longer visit will permit a more thorough exploration of all Mt. Elgon has to offer.

 Mt Kenya, Africa’s second highest peak is regarded as the realm of Ngai, a traditional god of the local Kikuyu people. In the past, all Kikuyu homes were built facing this sacred peak. They call it Kirinyaga, or place of light. The mountain is an awe-inspiring sight. Its ragged series of peaks are crowned with snow, and its slopes are thick with forest. The mountain is best seen at dawn, when the days early light silhouettes its impressive summit high over the surrounding plains. While the 5199 metre summit is a difficult technical climb, the lesser peak of Point Lenana (4985m) can be easily reached by any fit trekker. This trek takes between 3 and 5 days, through a fascinating world of forests, wildlife, unique montane vegetation including podocarpus and groundsel, and finally one of the world’s rarest sights, equatorial snow.

 Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park is home to one of the world’s most accessible high summits, a beacon for visitors from around the world. Kilimanjaro is generally accepted as the highest ‘walk able mountain’ in the world and so is a considerable achievement for walkers though it requires no technical climbing skills. It is a long and hard trek which reaches an altitude of 5,896m. Most climbers reach the crater rim with little more than a walking stick, proper clothing and determination. And those who reach Uhuru Point, the actual summit of the tallest mountain in Africa, or Gillman’s Point on the lip of the crater, will have earned their climbing certificates… and their memories.
