The wide variety of flora and fauna with several biospheres as you ascend through different vegetation zones creates the ultimate experience for trekking.

The Rwenzori Mountains is a World Heritage Site and offers the opportunity to see nature at its best. The plant life varies from heavy tropical rainforest, bamboo forests, montane cloud forests to alpine vegetation and the scenery is truly spectacular. Above 4,500 metres the snow and glaciers add that special dimension to the wondrous views throughout this pristine mountain range.

Rwenzori Trekking Services offers a variety of trekking and climbing options from one day to twelve days to suit your style of adventure and schedule. The Rwenzori range is a true mountain range with many climbs and descents and making it a tough climb however the scenery and beautiful vegetation are incredible. The high rainfall of more than three metres per year, the moss covered rocks, the dense vegetation, the tall peaks and cliffs towering above to the moss covered valleys and meandering streams create a ‘Alice in Wonderland atmosphere’ which changes through several biospheres as you climb making the “Rwenzori Mountains” a truly unique experience.

Above is a view of the main peaks from Bamwanjara Pass which is between Camp 3 and Camp 4 on the Kilembe Route. On the left is Mt Stanley with Savoia, Great Tooth, Elena Peaks and just seen poking over the top is Margherita Peak. In the centre is Mt. Speke and on the left you look over the ridge climbing to Wiesmanns Peak to see Mt Baker. The small prong or finger like rock on the ridge is McConnells Prong. Behind the prong you can see the valley between Mt Stanley and Mt Baker. From where the photo is taken our trail continues down the valley or pass in the foreground past Kacholpe Lakes and Camp 4 before crossing the valley to Kitandra Lakes and Scott Elliott Pass. You then climb to Camp 5 at 4,460 metres which is our top hut before climbing Margherita Peak.

Unforgettable 8 days trek to Margherita peak 8 days trek to Margherita peak was a beautiful, unforgettable experience. It’s hard to believe this trek is not popular - everything is well organised, the camps are amazing, having even wood oven stoves at higher altitudes so you can warm up and dry your clothes. There are huts so no sleeping in tents. The trails are just breathtaking and nature suprises you everyday. The guides are very knowledgeable and kind so you feel safe with them at all times. The food was also amazing and they managed to cook delicious vegan stuff for me. Before the trek, I exchanged probably at least a 50 e-mails with wonderful Remmy who answered all my concerns and arranged absolutely everything I needed.
