Fort Portal what to do?

Any suggestions about things to do out of Fort Portal? We already planned an afternoon walk in the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.We’re not interested to see the Chimps in Kibale Forest. ( too expensive for nothing special).

The chimpanzee trekking in kibale national park is a great experience which you don't have to miss... if not you can do a forest walk in same forest or You can try a night walk or cycling around the creator lakes and this can be arranged by chimp nest lodge.

Try this out, Mabere ga' Nyinamwiru, the Kasenda crater region, Mahooma falls, Kihangami, wetland, Rwehamba Market, Toro Palace tours, if they do not work for you, try the night, it's great.

Well as you are going to Kanyanchu anyway why not ask for a guided walk in the Forest?

You could do worse than speak to Richard or William at Kabarole Tours.

They organise several day trips/hikes etc., in the area. If you are fit you can walk over the Rwenzoris via Bwamba pass to Bundibogyo where they will meet you and drive you back to FP.

Where are you staying? It may have a bearing.

There are some other interesting things to do, such as visit vanilla plantation or tea plantation etc.

There's lots of different types of accommodation over there, offering different activities. You can even play lawn tennis or croquet at one of the lodges! :)

If you are there on a Wednesday you should definately go to Mugusu market. Just 5k down the Kasese road loads of transport there all day.

We would like to stay at Ruwenzori View guesthouse or Mountains of the Moon Hotel. Any other suggestions?
