We did the 3-day trek and had a very positive experience. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and well-trained, although it was a bit too clear that they were bored with our low-altitude endeavors. Even so, we made it up to 3500 meters/11,500 feet and were treated to amazing views, monkey/chameleon sightings, otherworldly wildlife, and incredible meals despite being miles... More

Rwenzori is probably the most scenic mountain in Africa. I did 7 days hike on the Central Circuit (end of January 2017), and the views and the beauty of the mountain go well beyond what you can see on the more popular Kili and Mt Kenya. The hike is quite tough because of the daily rain, the high altitude, the... More

This trek requires one to be physically fit and in good health to hike this Mountain. Its one of the hardest mountain to hike in Africa because its rainy and muddy most of the time making the hike difficult at times.

It was a privilege to spend a few days here with my family. Kids are young so we did not get up as a high as we wanted to in the mountains but even still. Beautiful scenery, lush rainforest and a very well organised national park with great guides.

Hi, I did the Weisman Peak 6-day trek with Rwenzori Trekking Services just two weeks ago. Organising was extremely easy, office is very responsive to all emails/calls or you can simply pop into their office in Kampala if you are there (at Backpackers Hostel). Transport to/from Kampala is easy with a 7-9h bus (Linkers, Kalita, etc), costs 30,000 UGX. The... More

We trek and climb all the way to the summit of Margharita Peak at the end of September 2016. This park is great for hike and nature lovers. Even Though the hike is quite though due to the condition of the trail, it's worth it and the national park is improving continuously the trail, with metallic ladders and boardwalks on... More

We went with Rwenzori Trekking services for a one day hike into the mountains. Although the starting area is quite interesting (you will see the locals, coffee farms, and there are some nice views), when you arrive at the protected park area the scenery is much of the same. We walked along a riverbed in a forested area, there are... More

We reviewed this activity on trip advisor and on the company's website. There were great reviews for 2-3 day walks but no reviews for 1 day. We only had time for 1 day but we're disappointed and should have missed out. We spent hours on a vertical climb with glimps of views and no flat viewing point for lunch. This... More
