It was a privilege to spend a few days here with my family. Kids are young so we did not get up as a high as we wanted to in the mountains but even still. Beautiful scenery, lush rainforest and a very well organised national park with great guides.

Hi, I did the Weisman Peak 6-day trek with Rwenzori Trekking Services just two weeks ago. Organising was extremely easy, office is very responsive to all emails/calls or you can simply pop into their office in Kampala if you are there (at Backpackers Hostel). Transport to/from Kampala is easy with a 7-9h bus (Linkers, Kalita, etc), costs 30,000 UGX. The... More

We trek and climb all the way to the summit of Margharita Peak at the end of September 2016. This park is great for hike and nature lovers. Even Though the hike is quite though due to the condition of the trail, it's worth it and the national park is improving continuously the trail, with metallic ladders and boardwalks on... More

We went with Rwenzori Trekking services for a one day hike into the mountains. Although the starting area is quite interesting (you will see the locals, coffee farms, and there are some nice views), when you arrive at the protected park area the scenery is much of the same. We walked along a riverbed in a forested area, there are... More

We reviewed this activity on trip advisor and on the company's website. There were great reviews for 2-3 day walks but no reviews for 1 day. We only had time for 1 day but we're disappointed and should have missed out. We spent hours on a vertical climb with glimps of views and no flat viewing point for lunch. This... More

Rwenzori mountain is trully beautiful. Yhe trails might be difficult because of the mud and wet weather but it's worth the effort to trek the mountain. I went out with Rwenzori Trekking Service and they provide excellent services. The huts are in great condition with decent toilet. I just had problem with the lead guide who tried to get more...

Recently (July 2016) did a 2-day trek on the Kilembe trail with Rwenzori Trekking Services. We had been hoping to be able to do the longer option 2-day trek up to the 2nd camp, however one of my friends started experiencing altitude sickness. One of our guides was willing to take me and my other friend up to the second... More

In the beginning we were wondering if its possible to do a few days' excursion in the Rwenzoris but found contradicting answers. We had just 12 days in Uganda and we wanted to do track chimpanzees, raft the river Nile, Hike the Rwenzoris and visit the Murchison falls. We contacted our guide said its possible to do all this if... More
