“The Mystical Challenge”

Mountain trekking in surreal montane setting, Equatorial Snow Peaks, Afromontane vegetation

The 5100m Mount Rwenzori – or “Mountains of the Moon” is the snowy source of the Nile referred to by early geographers. The trails to the snow peaks ascend glacier-carved valleys filled with colourful mosses and giant forms of lobelias, heathers and groundsels.


The continent’s highest mountain range, the Rwenzori, or “Mountains of the Moon” are Africa’s only snow-capped Mountain Range. Hiking in the Rwenzori Mountains is a highlight for active couples, and the truly fit can take on the challenge of climbing to the top of snow-capped Mount Stanley, Uganda’s highest peak – an experience that makes you feel like you were in the Alpine Meadows of Switzerland.


Mountain Climbing (Up to 7 days), Spectacular Sceneries and unique plant life

Unlike other national parks in Uganda that offer excellent game viewing opportunities, Rwenzori is better known for its spectacular Sceneries and Unique plant life. Mountain climbing is a major activity with trekking along the Rwenzori Central Trail circuit taking up to 7 days. Most notably are the permanent Snow Capped Peaks – Margherita (Speke & Baker Peaks) the highest and Stanley Peak the largest, among 3 other peaks.


Tropical Rain forest, Alpine Meadows and Snow

The range supports its own species and varieties of giant Lobelia. The Albertine Rift-Valley hosts six endemic small mammals which include the Rwenzori Otter Shrew and Rwenzori Red Duiker. The Mountain supports 19 endemic bird species including the Rwenzori Turaco, and the Blue-headed Sunbird. Endemic reptiles include the Great Lakes Bush Viper and the Strange Horned Chameleon. 212 bird species and 77 mammal species have been recorded in the Rwenzoris.
