Tree climbing lions, crater lakes and the Rwenzori Mountains? This is the trip for you! Another of our very popular trips, it makes a great addition to other routes and can be on it’s own (average 4-5 days).

Fort Portal is an amazing little city. It’s considered the Switzerland of Uganda. Based at the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, this is popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Get ready to slow down from the hustle of Kampala and enjoy hikes and a relaxed vibe.

Queen Elizabeth is home to the second greatest family of mammals in Uganda after Murchison Falls National Park. It is hard not to appreciate its expansive 2000sq km landscape complete with views of the Rwenzori Mountains, Lake Edward, Lake George, Kazinga Channel and even Congo.
