One of the wildest and most remote high alpine environments in the world is the rarely discovered Rwenzori Mountain range of Western Uganda. The highest point in the range is the third highest peak in Africa at 5,109m altitude. The trek is considered a far more authentic wilderness experience than Kilimanjaro and small groups of climbers will often enjoy having the summit – and much of the route – to themselves. Our director – supported by a 41-man strong platoon of the Ugandan People’s Defence Force – was responsible for leading the expedition that reopened the Rwenzori National Park in February 2000, following five years of ADF-led insurgency. In addition to summitting all three peaks of Mount Stanley, the expedition was tasked with flushing out residual Interahamwe guerilla sections. Nowadays Uganda is considered to be one of the safest visitor destinations in Africa, with one of the lowest crime incidence levels.
To date a far more popularly visited area of Uganda is the Bwindi impenetrable forest, home to around half of all the world’s mountain gorillas. Those seeking direction from us will be referred to Adventure Trails as the facilitator of choice for gorilla tracking safaris.
