Best Rated Things to Do in Ruwenzori National Park

  • Visit Glaciers on the Equator

    There is something surreal about standing on glaciers in equitorial Africa and looking down on tropical rainforest.

    You do not need considerable technical ability but you do need good equiptment, a guide and determination. The standard visit to the glaciers will take you 9 days although it might be worth adding an extra day for acclimatization.

    These glaciers are receeding fast due to global warming. Experts predict that fairly soon, within 50 years, they will not be there so this is a time limited activity.

    My tips of climbing in the area give further more detailed information on how you can end up on these glaciers.

  • Acclimatization day Jaguar and Green Lakes

    The standard itinery for trekking rushes through the Rwenzori.

    If you allow an extra day at Bjuku Hut for acclimatization you can visit the Green and Jaguar Lakes.

    Providing its not raining, the Green Lake provides excellent views of the Speke Glacier and Mount Stanley. The Jaguar Lake will give you views of the North Face of Stanley but also excellent views down onto Congo.

  • Climb the highest Mountains in Uganda

    Climb the highest mountains in Uganda. You need to organise a permit with the Ugandan Wildlife Autority. A standard package exists with a guide and 4 porters. Most of my other tips relate to how you can organise this.
