This is an experience you can only take for yourself. The variety of plants, the animals and the gorgeous scenery are all so enchanting. Every day brings its own beauties. The mountain has no crowds and you get the sense of being in this all...More
Me and my boyfriend had traveled around Uganda for 3 weeks. Before we left sweden we had decided to go trekking in the Rewenzories but hadn’t booked anything.
Two companies runs guided trekking tours and we talked to both of them. In the end we...More
My partner and me did a 5 day trek to Weisman peak with rwenzori trekking services. We normally hike by ourselves so the expierence with guides was new for us, but was very pleasant. All is foreseen to make your hike comfortable. Excellent guides, good...More
One of the best treks, if not the best, we have ever done. We spent 6 days hiking to the top of Weisman's Peak.with Rwenzori Trekking Services. We had perfect weather with no rain and no need for gumboots!
Dramatic, unique scenery, challenging trails (gnarly...More

My wife and I went to the park expecting to find vistas and scenic walks like those in the advertisements; unfortunately you can hardly see anything from the main gate. Furthermore, once you pay the park entry fee (we avoided this with a special pass)...More
Unfortunately, we only spent a few hours in the entrance area os the park but this was already breath taking. Next time we will come back with more time and do one of the 3 or 5 days trips. Highly recommended.
I could write a big big review of our 8-day Kilembe Trail to Margherita Peak, but it will condense down to the following messages:

The climb varies significantly from the rainforest, bogs, rocky terrain, to the glacier. Having good balance and flexibility is key throughout much of the trek (especially for the bogs and slippery rocky terrain). On steep rocky portions and the glacier you will use ropes with a harness in portions and crampons on the glacier, but your guides should be able to show you exactly what to do. I had excellent guides with Rwenzori Trekking Services. In general, being in good physical condition is required and you should be able to ascend about 1000m/day in elevation and hikes lasting from 5-12 hours a day. Be prepared for rain as well. Do not let any of this stop you though. The Margherita peak climb and every bit of the Rwenzori National Park is magnificent!
