The Rwenzoris are the legendary “Mountains of the moon”, a reflection of the mist-shrouded mountains of this rugged massif.

The tour starts with a 1hr 30min drive by car to the starting point of the foothills of Rwenzori Mountains. Hiking up into the mountain takes about 2hrs. We spend 1hr at the top, where we can relax in a natural healing bath in the hot spring and jump into the ice cold river just 6 meters away!

Enjoy a great view of the world around and below us, as you wait for a boiled egg snack cooked in the hot spring at 75 degrees Celsius.

The Mini Hike tour in the Rwenzori National Park includes a hike up to 3012m above sea level.

Tour also includes visit to local communities go Bakonzo Tribe.

These mountains offer a unique and pristine landscape of alpine vegetation studded with charismatic giant lobelias, groundsels, and heathers which have been called “Africa’s botanical big game”. The combination of spectacular snow-capped peaks, glaciers, V-shaped valleys, fast flowing rivers with magnificent waterfalls, clear blue lakes and unique flora contributes to the area’s exceptional natural beauty.

 

*The history of this pictures goes back to 1938, when a group of Polish pioneers set out form Warsaw to explore the Rwenzori mountain range in Uganda.

We managed to get a hold of the original pictures they took during their trip, which we proudly representig on our walls of restaurant.
