Hike Mt. Elgon


Join us for a guided trip up Mt. Elgon, the 2nd highest mountain in Uganda and the 8th in Africa.  In recent years Mt. Elgon has received much attention and for good reason.  With a 4321m summit, and a year-round warm tropical climate Mt. Elgon offers hikers an incredible experience at low cost and with easy access.  

Our trips are led by an experienced outdoor guide, make use of high quality equipment, provide you with great food and drinks and allow you to enjoy all the wonders of the mountain without having to worry about pitching tents, cooking food or other such inconveniences! We also provide a few camping upgrades such as a hot shower, a clean toilet and our own kitchen and dining shelter, meaning we can always provide you with a comfortable camp no matter what.

More importantly we have a full safety management plan in place, use guides with wilderness first aid training, carry first aid kits and satellite communications, meaning as well as the convenience, our trips provide you with the peace of mind that should anything go wrong, we're prepared for it.
