Did Nature walk at the foot hills of Rwenzori mountain also a walk on Mubuku River at Rwenzori. A lot of short and long circuit trails for hiking for those who don't want a long hike to the peak of the mountain available.

This trekking company does a great job of providing an unforgettable trip. The guides are awesome – we had Samuel and Robert, two guys who really knew what they were doing. This is important as your lives are literally in their hands on the summit. They were super nice, and listened to what we wanted to do. The porters were... More

Went on the two-day trekking 2 weeks ago with Rwenzori Trekking Services (RTS). Because I seemed to be fit the guides would take me on the three-day trail in 2 days, which was very exhausting but definately worth the efforts. Stunning views and unique landscapes!

I have traveled extensively and seen many places of immense natural beauty, but I think that the Rwenzori Central Circuit hike has been the most memorable so far. The Rwenzori Mountaineering Services control access to the park and do take advantage of the monopoly, but the upside is that only 32 hikers per day are allowed in. Because of the... More

Rwenzori National Park was the highlight of my travel in Uganda, it was such a wonderful experience to trek in the National Park, the trick is to be ready for any weather, rain, sunshine, in a matter of hours.

RTS guided a 3 night trek for our school group (25 in all) with skill, thoughtfulness and good humour. When I (one of 4 leaders) collapsed close to Kalalama camp on day 4, they could not have been more efficient or kinder. I was stretchered swiftly and safely down to medical help and accompanied to Kasese clinic where Nick from... More

Did 8 days to Margherita peak with RTS in June 2015. Could not fault the service from RTS, great food even days into the trek, but most importantly great safety skills. Obviously we'll trained in glacial travel, had ice screws handy on the step sections of the glacier. Despite a challenging trek we never felt unsafe. We've trekked in many... More

This February 2015 we went on the 7 days trek in Rwenzori Mountains with Rwenzori Ranges Guides and Escort Association and had the most amazing experience. The Bukurungu Trail was quite a challenge, but unique experience. Our support team with Denis was very knowledgeable, experienced and professional - they really made the trip exceptional. The scenery was spectacular. Getting through... More
