travelling to the Rwenzori areas is a fascinating experience,looking at the kilembe mines areas where copper is mined & looking at how the floods from the top mountains how they destroyed & moved houses taking along their path very huge stones which cleared peoples houses.

the Rwenzori offer spectacular scenery! unusually large plants and tough trekking. RTS did an excellent job of ensuring we all enjoyed the trip and were more than well fed on the trip.

The hike is quite tough and very steep but rewarding, the conditions while quite simple are made quite pleasant by the staff with quite nice... More

Again hitched from kadrrsr a little harder than expected. When you get to the mountains it's a whole different world chilly and very damp. Hit a lot of light raon. Vegetacian was different and locals really friendly. A nice trip

The forest is spectacular, from the dense tall trees to the old bamboo forest and the wild life was beautiful too. They really... More

This August we went on the 8 day trek in the Rwenzori Mountains with RTS and had the most amazing experience. The trek to Margherita Peak was quite a challenge but the guides, Uziah and Sam were very professional and helpful. Although cloudy and wet at times the scenery was spectacular and the camps were comfortable and well organised. I... More

The Snow capped Mt Rwenzori is breathtaking and I would recommend it for Hikers. Its ranges stretching through more than 100kms is amazing. Margherita peak is the highest and snow can be seen on clear morning hours.
