Yes it is possible , it can also be done in 7 days as follows. But will be very hectic.

Day 1: Nyakaleginja - Nyabitaba

Day 2: Nyabitaba - Johnmate

Day 3: Johnmate - Bujuku

Day 4: Bujuku - Elena

Day 5 : Elena - Margherita - Kitandara

Day 6: Kitandara - GuyYomen - Nyabitaba (8hrs -10hrs)

Day 7: Nyabitab - OUT (3-4 hrs)

I would advise you go for 9 days hike if you have time.

just came back from four weeks travel in East Africa. we were a group 7 people. we had a very nice trip. stayed in camps/lodges.Rwenzori and Kirimanjaro mountains was really a great adventure and we also did the chimpanzee exprience in kibale,gorilla tracking in Bwindi Queen Elizabeth national park ,Ssese islands,masai mara,serengeti,lake manyara . we felt like we were in danger of pick pocketers in Nairobi. i had read this forum before going and was anxious, but once there, i felt may be the only people who write about this issues are a few unlucky ones who got robbed. full trip report will be posted soon..
