Day 2

Road trip to the Rwenzoris

Driving

6 hrs

In the morning you’ll hop in the van, heading westwards towards the Rwenzori Mountains, aka 'the Mountains of the Moon'. Watch Uganda unfold out of the window as you road trip through farms, tea estates, thick green forests and rolling hills. Stop for lunch on the way, and stretch your legs on the edge of Kibale National Park. Later on, you'll reach Ruboni Community Camp in the Rwenzori foothills, where you can settle into the lodge for dinner ready for the true adventure kicking off tomorrow.

Day 3

The trek begins

Rwenzori Mountains Trekking, Uganda

Hiking

6-7hrs · 7km · 1090m up · 75m down

Drive to Nyakalengija at 1615m above sea level, where the trek begins. Say hello to your expedition team of guides, porters and cooks and run through a final equipment check before hitting the trail. Meander through farmlands and a thick forest along the Mubuku River, crossing the Mahoma River tributary before starting the long, steep ascent up onto a massive ridge to reach Nyabitaba Hut at 2651m. During this part of the trek you are likely to hear chimpanzees and see black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys and the dazzlingly coloured Rwenzori turaco.

Day 4

Nyabitaba to John Matte Hut (3505m)

Wake up early and hit the trail that drops down through a forest to the Kurt Shafer Bridge, just below the convergence of the Mubuku and Bujuku rivers. Passing through bamboo forest, traverse through a long and tough-going stretch of slippery, moss-covered rocks. From the Nyamuleju rock shelter, Mount Stanley and Mount Speke can be seen before a transitory zone of the giant heather, lobelia and groundsel. Finally, you'll reach John Matte Hut where you'll have dinner and sleep for the night.

Day 5

Bujuku Hut (3962m)

Trekking

4-5hrs · 5km · 683m up · 123m down

From John Matte Hut the trail drops down to cross the Bujuku River and over a long boardwalk across Lower Bigo Bog, with some jumping from tussock to tussock required at certain points. The Upper Bigo Bog gives way to Bujuku Lake, with views of the famous Mount Baker and Mount Stanley. Bujuku Hut is located in the shadow of Mount Baker and Mount Speke, set in a narrow valley below Stuhlmann Pass. Settle in for dinner beneath these giant peaks.

Day 6

Climb to Elena Hut (4541m)

Host image - Mbogo Africa Safaris

Trekking

5-6hrs · 6km · 560m up · 40m down

The terrain changes as you get clamber above 4000m today, with the forest giving way to more stark landscapes on the climb up to Elena Hut on Mount Stanley. You'll navigate a steep, narrow trail over large boulders in this mid-section, sandwiched between the verdant green below and the snowcapped peaks above. Reach your next mountain hut at 4541m, where your guides will run over the plan for tomorrow's summit day, including a safety run-through and some instruction on using crampons, ice axes and the group being roped together at points.

Day 7

Summit Mount Stanley's Margherita Peak (5109m)

Rwenzori Mountains Trekking, Uganda
Host image - Mbogo Africa Safaris

Trekking

7-9hrs · 7km · 903m up · 1089m down

The big one. Rise early and gear up for the push to the snowcapped Margherita Peak of Mount Stanley. This is the third highest point in Africa, after Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. With crampons on, you'll traverse glaciers across the Stanley Plateau as you proceed to the ascent. The climb is gradual to help with the altitude, resulting in one final scramble to the summit overlooking the Rwenzori range. Descend back to Elena Hut and fuel up with a post-summit lunch, before hiking down further to the Scott-Elliot pass and by the Kitandara Lakes to reach the Kitandara huts for dinner and a well-earned night's sleep.

Day 8

Kitandara to Guy Yeoman Hut

Host image - Mbogo African Safaris

Trekking

6-7hrs · 8km · 45m up · 585m down

Ascend a steep headwall at the bottom of Mount Baker and continue along the south side of the mountain to Fresh Field Pass (4282m). At this point, you can view the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west and Mount Stanley to the north. From the pass, take on the long, steady descent through steep rocky trails and the rock shelter at Bujongolo. This was the base camp for the historic expedition by the Duke of Abruzzi in 1906 – the first recorded summit of Mount Stanley, which gave Margherita Peak its name (after Queen Margherita of Italy). Arrive at Guy Yeoman Hut for dinner before bedding down for the night.

Day 9

The final descent

Trekking

7-8hrs · 9km · 20m up · 1920m down

It's all downhill from here on the final day of your Rwenzori trekking expedition. The route descends Kichuchu cliff and on a muddy path through the Mubuku River and a bamboo forest, before climbing downwards to Nyabitaba to complete the Margherita Peak circuit. Continue descending to Nyabitaba Hut and finish your trek by the evening at the Nyakalengija base camp.

Day 10

Safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park

Day 11

Mountain gorilla tracking

Wildlife Tracking

4hrs

One of the world's most incredible wildlife encounters awaits you today. On the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, meet up with your forest ranger guide for a briefing before starting your trek through the forest, hiking in a strictly controlled group of no more than eight people. Your ranger will know where the group of gorillas have been spending time in the forest and will lead you to the right area. You'll never forget your first sighting, and will be permitted to spend an hour with these gentle giants in their forest home. Return to the lodge for lunch and spend the rest of the day relaxing in this peaceful spot after an incredible past week of adventures.

What is the food like?

Fruit Market, Uganda Cycling, Getty

You will have a cook trekking with you as part of the expedition team in the Rwenzoris, so you'll be kept well fuelled throughout with a blend of Ugandan dishes and international meals. Outside of the Rwenzoris part of the trip, you'll encounter Uganda's wonderful array of staple foods, with fresh fruits, sweet potato, posho, beans, kalo (millet bread) and matoke (cooked green banana). These are typically combined with a beef, chicken or fish stew. The most famous street food in Uganda is the Rolex (rolled eggs), an omelette rolled in a flat Indian pancake, Kikomando (beans mixed with chapati, Indian pancake) and Nsenene (fried grasshoppers).

Vegetarians, vegans and other dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for - please just request this on your passenger info form.

What is the accommodation like?

Entebbe

Your first and last nights of the trip are spent in Entebbe, Uganda's international gateway on the edge of Lake Victoria. You'll stay at the Hotel Seven Seasons in twin-share rooms with ensuite bathrooms.

Ruboni Community Camp

At the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, on the eve of your trekking expedition, you'll spend one night at Ruboni Community Camp. It's managed by members of the Bakonzo Community, who have inhabited the foothills of the Rwenzoris for over 300 years. You'll stay in twin-share rooms within the lodge and enjoy a hearty breakfast here before you set off on the trail.

Rwenzori Mountain Huts

Throughout your trekking expedition in the Rwenzori Mountains you'll stay in a series of mountain huts – Nyabitaba, John Matte, Bujuku, Elena, Kitandra and Guy Yeoman. The huts are basic, with a dining area, a kitchen, dormitories with bunk beds and mattresses, and separate sleeping quarters for the guides. Dorms are same-sex shared, with up to 24 beds (depending on the hut). Your trekking team will provide hot water for washing, and some of the lower camps have streams or waterfalls that are warm enough to wash in. There are solar-powered outside lights at most of the huts. You'll need to bring your own sleeping bag and inflatable pillow (see kitlist).

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Either side of your once-in-a-lifetime day tracking the gorillas, you'll stay at the Gorilla Valley Lodge. Located at the border of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and set on a steep slope, the lodge has a truly unique setting. Imagine waking up to the sounds of the forest, having a cup of coffee or tea on your private terrace, experiencing the forest coming alive and the mist mysteriously giving way to a lush jungle. You'll stay in twin-share rooms with en-suite bathrooms.

Upgrades

For solo travellers looking for their own space during the two nights in Entebbe, the two nights at the lodge in Bwindi and the one night at Ruboni Camp, an optional private room can be booked throughout the full trip for an extra charge, see Optional Extras. Please request this at the time of booking (this is subject to availability). Please note due to the nature of the mountain huts in the Rwenzori Mountains, private rooms are not available from Day 3 through to Day 9.

This trip is brand new

We’re still waiting to collect any reviews from other travellers on this trip. However, all our hosts go through an extensive vetting process to ensure that your adventure is awesome.

We partner with the World Land Trust to ensure this trip achieves Net-Zero emissions. We also support their Buy an Acre programme, helping local communities to buy and protect natural habitats in perpetuity.

What's the number?
It works out on average at 354kg of CO2 emissions per person, including all local transport, accommodation, food, activities, guides, staff and office operations.

The only thing it doesn’t include right now is flights and travel to the destination. We do make an overall estimate across all our customers separately, but as we don’t book flights, have customers from all corners of the world, and no way of reliably knowing their travel plans, we simply can’t include an individual number in the figure on display here. We’ve got a goal to fix that, so that when you book, there is a way to measure and mitigate the carbon emitted by your flight too.

But what does the number mean?
Yep, hard to picture eh? To give you an idea:

  • Driving 1000miles/1609km would be approx. 281kg of CO2 in an average car (or 140.5kg per person if there was 2 of you in it).
  • A return economy class flight London - New York would be approx. 1,619kg (1.66 tonnes) per person.
  • 10 trees in a temperate forest are estimated to remove approx. 250kg of CO2 from the air in a period of 5-10 years.

What are we doing about it?
Our trips are relatively low-carbon by design, and we're working with all our hosts to develop long term carbon reduction plans. We partner with the World Land Trust to ensure this trip achieves Net-Zero emissions. We also support their Buy an Acre programme, helping local communities to buy and protect natural habitats in perpetuity, ensuring the protection of the reserve and its wildlife.

Want to know more?
Amazingly, no international travel company has ever publicly published their carbon measurements before, as far as we know. We believe that must change, quickly. So we’re openly sharing the method we used in the hope that other companies will be able to more easily follow suit and build on what we've done so far. You'll find it all here.

This is a challenging expedition in a remote part of Uganda, with difficult terrain, a sizeable chunk of elevation gain and loss over the course of seven days on the trail, and with altitude considerations on several days of the trek. Ideally, you'll have some multi-day trekking experience, although this isn't 100% needed if as long as you are fit and able to walk for up to eight hours a day while carrying a daypack. The general sense of remoteness and the basic facilities at camp will add to the sense of adventure on this trip, but come prepared with the right mindset and a taste for true adventure. The mid-section of the route can get muddy which adds a layer of challenge to a couple of the trekking days (rubber boots are needed), whereas the lower and upper sections of the trail will be more like classic trekking in hiking boots (with crampons for the summit). Your trek in the Rwenzoris is guided by rangers from the Rwenzori Ranges Hikers Association, a community organisation formed and owned by the local Bakonzo people living in the foothills of Rwenzori Mountains. The RRHA have been guiding visitors to this part of Uganda since the late 1800s, when they guided the first Europeans to explore the range. They manage the trails and facilitate all treks in the area, so you are in the safest possible hands.

When you trek in the mountains, there's always the risk of getting altitude sickness, regardless of how old, young, fit or unfit you are. We would expect most trekkers to feel some mild symptoms of altitude sickness (headache, sleeplessness, heavy breathing) when over 3000m. Your guides in the Rwenzori Mountains are trained to identify the symptoms of altitude sickness so if any more serious symptoms are noted, there is a strict procedure regarding extra care or a rapid descent if needed. The Margherita Peak trekking circuit route was designed with altitude safety in mind and has been operating for many years. The summit success rate is 90%, and there have not been any cases of failure to summit due to altitude sickness.

Uganda is home to roughly half of the world's remaining mountain gorilla population. All permits to go and see the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest are issued by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. There are 11 habituated gorilla families in Bwindi (out of around 36 families), and a maximum of eight permits are issued to track each habituated family per day. Permits need to be secured three months before the trip departure date, so be aware of this when making a booking. You’ll hike through the forest for up to six hours in total, and when you encounter the gorillas you’ll be permitted to spend up to an hour in their presence. Watch them play, forage and relax, and they'll likely gaze back at the odd group of humans in return. You must keep a distance of 7m from the gorillas at all times to avoid disease transmission; even a common cold can be dangerous for a gorilla. For this reason, it is not permitted to track gorillas if you are ill, nor is eating or drinking allowed. Photography is permitted, however you only have an hour, so take a few snaps and then soak up being in this magical place with these beautiful creatures.

Summiting the highest point in the Rwenzori Mountins is right up there with Kilimanjaro as a once-in-a-lifetime challenge, but you'll almost have the place to yourself. Less than 1,000 people a year walk in the Rwenzori Mountains (and not all of those summit Margherita Peak) compared with 50,000 on Kilimanjaro or 25,000 on Mount Kenya. Combining the third highest summit in Africa with trekking to see the gorillas is a real bucket-list double-whammy. This does come at a premium price tag – National Park fees and operating costs for local guides and outfits are high in the parts of Uganda this trip goes to, particularly so in the Rwenzori Mountains. Your gorilla trekking permits are included in the trip cost – these are $700 (£580) per person. This part of the trip cost, therefore, goes directly towards the conservation of the remaining population of mountain gorillas.

It is important that you pack the right type of boots to fit the crampons that will be provided. You will need a 4-season hiking boot, ideally B1 crampon compatible or hybrid. Full plastic double boots are not required and are likely to be uncomfortable for most of the terrain encountered. You can read more about crampons and selecting the right boots here.

Margherita Peak is a trekking peak, so no technical mountaineering experience is needed, however some technical equipment is used to navigate the snowy and icy conditions on the top of Mount Stanley safely. Your guides will give you full training on how to use the crampons and ice axes to safely traverse the snowcapped section.

Sure can! Over 70% of our travellers travel solo, it’s a great way to meet like-minded people.

Tips are not included in the trip cost. These are entirely at your discretion but there is an expectation to tip for good service. As a guideline, we suggest budgeting for approx. $5 USD (or equivalent) per day for the main guide of your trip, and then budget an additional $10 USD per day to cover tips to support staff such as porters, cooks and the scouts who set off to locate the gorillas before your trek. Of course, you are free to tip more or less, and the amount should be reflective of your perception of service and quality - a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service.

Your guides and porters will provide treated water throughout the trek. You should bring along a reusable water bottle and a bladder or other hydration system, such as CamelBak. If you wish to have the ability to filter your own water in addition to the treated water supplied by the guides, please have a read of our guide to water filter bottles here.

There are two wet periods in the Rwenzori Mountains – the long rainy season and the short rainy season. The long rainy season begins in March and ends in May. The short rainy season is during the month of November. We don't run trips during these months due to the difficult conditions after heavier rainfall in the Rwenzoris. Temperatures in Uganda typically stay around 25-29 degrees Celsius the whole year round, with very little fluctuation between seasons. It can be a bit colder in higher mountainous areas such as the Rwenzori Mountains, Bwindi and Kisoro in the west, and Mount Elgon in the east. Uganda has two slightly cooler seasons: from March to May and from September to October, during which you might encounter some rainfall. The hotter months are from December to February.

Yes. You can leave any excess luggage items in the hotel in Entebbe. You should only bring one softshell bag and a smaller backpack with you to the Rwenzoris, and plan to leave any hard cases in Entebbe.

Yellow Fever vaccination is required for all travellers to Uganda. We recommend checking out the country specific information here and also talking to a travel nurse.

No. You'll need to have a main soft shell bag suitable for all your belongings which will be transported for you by the porters on the trek. In addition to this main bag, you should bring a smaller backpack, for carrying with you while on the trek.

Yes, all travellers to Uganda, regardless of nationality, are required to apply for and obtain a visa prior to travel. British travellers can see the UK FCDO Uganda Travel Advice for a link to the online application form. A single entry visa costs approx. $50 USD and is typically granted within 2-3 days. Travellers are emailed a document to download or print.

Our recommended travel insurance provider is Campbell Irvine.
