Day One:

Pick up at 06:30 hours and proceed east, past Mbale to Mount Elgon that straddles the border with

Kenya. Mbale lies 3-4 hours from Kampala along a good tarmac road.Mt. Elgon is a 4,321m high extinct

volcano which in prehistoric times stood taller than Kilimanjaro does today. Although the mountain

straddles the Kenyan border, its loftiest peak, Wagagai, lies within Uganda and is best ascended from

the Ugandan side.

ranging from montane forest to high open moorland studded with the other-worldly giant lobelia and

groundsel plants.

but there is also a variety of forest monkeys and small antelope, along with elephant and buffalo. A
