  • My partner and I had a phenomenal time trekking in the Rwenzori National Park and summiting four peaks, including Margherita peak. Our guides, Bosco and Uzia were great - very strong mountaineers...

  • Flying into the roof of Uganda on the Rwenzori mountains was the most life experience I have tested.

  • Good, Come and explore nature with Mugo Tours and Safaris Uganda
  • I loved ..loved the experience there. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I reached the peak and i would recommend any adrenaline junkie to try it
  • Rwenzori Mountains, wow!!! Yes we went there, in fact we went there until the very top! Wow! Really I can just say wow. It is a extreme experience extremely horrible and beautiful at the same. Horrible because of the dreadful work behind it you have to be fully trained and experienced to go there and I am serious. But how is it beautiful, beautiful because of the wonderful landscapes and scenery you see there. And at the very top you see the only snow there us in Uganda. Another fact is that it is the hardest mountain to go up to in Africa wow! I can recommend it but only if you are very trained and are absolutely ready for it. In the internet it might say that you only go certain metres of height but in fact you go more since there are a lot of ups and downs, they only measure it from the height of one camp to the next. Have fun bragging and showing off your amazing experience later!
