Gorilla Tracking
One of the most organised countries for Gorilla viewing is Uganda where just north of the Virunga Volcanoes, in the Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest, several groups of gorillas have been habituated and are visited on a daily basis. Permits must be obtained well in advance. Almost 100% chances of seeing the gorillas - possible one of the best animal encounters available.

Safari
Uganda
The recent history of Uganda has been very turbulent but a period of relative stability has allowed the country to recover some of its former glory. Several magnificent mountain ranges and national parks rich in wildlife are all worthy of a visit.

Mount Elgon
This has one of the world's largest craters; of the several summits Wagagai (4320m) is the highest. The lower slopes are clad in magnificent forests, home to the shy Ndorobo forest dwellers, the Colobus monkey and the colourful Turaco. A remote camp-site between hot springs and a chilly mountain river provides an idyllic setting to relax in or explore the caldera and its surrounding peaks. More mountain information.

The Rwenzori

Point Alexandra

As early as 150 AD Ptolemy had written of the "Mountains of the Moon", where snows fed the lakes, sources of the Nile". The Rwenzori range lies along the western border of Uganda and represents a true mountain range composed of several massifs; it includes Africa's third highest summit, Point Margherita (5109m). These massifs offer great attractions to climbers, walkers and naturalists. There are several endemic species of birds including the brilliant Rwenzori turaco, also monkeys, red forest duiker, hyrax and leopard. Some elephant and buffalo live in the lower valleys. Though the flora is similar to other East African mountain ranges it is exceptionally luxuriant mainly as a result of the high rainfall in the area; however, from mid-December to the end of February and from mid-June to mid-August there is little rain and good climbing weather.
'The Mountains of the Moon', are a chain of remote fold mountains, set in the very heart of Africa. They contain some of East Africa's most lush and unusual vegetation together with beautiful lakes. The main summit, Margherita, 5109m, stands above the Stanley Plateau, the largest glaciated area on the continent. Looking west, you can see the endless expanse of the Congo jungle, from the east mist and clouds boil up over the Lake Victoria basin in Uganda, sometimes enveloping the range for several days.

Queen Elizabeth Park and the Rwenzori details
Fly to Entebbe then drive to Kasese. We complete the Mubuku - Bujuku circuit with time to explore or to climb three of the main summits (Margherita, Baker and Speke. The last few days are spent relaxing at a game park. This is a fully supported trek involving some tough terrain comprising mud, deep undergrowth & boulders. The difficulties underfoot are easily made up for by the exotic vegetation and scenery. Prices | Rwenzori Area - Trekking Routes | Map of Kilembe Treks | Map of Central Circuit Trek Area
