HIKING IN THE RWENZORI MOUNTAINS

The Rwenzori Mountains, also known as the mountains of the moon, are perfect for hikers who want a challenging ride "off the beaten track". The mountains have some of the highest peaks in Africa, and amazing diversity in landscapes, flora and fauna.

We offer everything from a few hours in the community areas, to treks in the national park. 

The hikes will start at our campsite in the Mbunga Community, at alt. 1600m. Transportation can be arranged from Kasese (car or boda-boda).
