ELGON NATIONAL PARK
Mountain Elgon has been an
extinct volcano that first erupted more than 24 million years ago. With
the largest surface area of any extinct Volcano in the world (50km by
80km), Mount Elgon is the fourth highest mountain in East Africa, with
the second highest peak in Uganda (Wagagai peak, 4321 m). It contains
the largest intact caldera, a collapsed crater covering over 40kms at
the top of the mountain, sorrounded by a series of rugged peaks.
and the Sabiny are the two ethnic tribes around the mountain. They practice
subsistence farming and conduct circumcision ceremonies every year to
prepare young men/women for challenges of adulthood. The two communities
have made agreements with the park for sustainable harvest of traditional
While ascending Mount Elgon's enchanting slopes you will meet four-distinct
forest types: the lush montane forest where you will find the Elgon peak,
mixed bamboo belt, the fascinating heath and spectacular moorland hyrachs
which contain stands of some of the most rare endemic plant species, like
the giant lobelia elgonensis and dotted clusters of peculiar groundsels
which are unique in Africa.
You will also encounter the dense shrubs and brilliant wild everlasting
flowers that will add to your Mount Elgon Uganda Safaris.
Bird lovers will enjoy about 300 bird species including the endangered
lammergeiers, the rare Jackson's francolin, guinea fowls, sunbirds and
turacos among others.
A number of primates inhabit the mountain, other animals include bushbuck,
antelope, civet, wildcat and the elusive leopard roam below. Bush duiker,
hyena, jackal, rock hyrax, buffalo and elephant rove between the forest
and the moorland. Many of these animals visit Mount Elgon's bat filled
caves for their valuable mineral deposits.
Visiting Mountain Elgon National Park presents an exciting setting for
extended hikes, interesting and unique flora and fauna, magnificent water
falls, enormous caves, scenic peaks, gorges and hot springs which bubble
up at 480oc. The best times to visit are during the drier seasons from
June to august and march to December. No technical climbing equipment
or skills are required, as all major peaks are accessible.
Trailheads And Routes
There are three main trailheads or starting points that lead to the mountain's
peaks. You may choose to begin your ascent from Budadiri (Sasa trailhead),
forest exploration center-Kapkwai (Sipi trailhead) or Kapkwata (Piswa
trailhead). Sasa trail is accessible from Mbale and is the most direct
route to the peaks though steep with rugged climb of over 1600m on the
first day. It passes through the park's largest area of bamboo forest.
Sipi trail offers the spectacular Tutum cave hidden within extensive forest,
while Piswa trail is renowned for the towering Podpcarpus forest, an excellent
place for wildlife viewing. In contrast, Sipi and Piswa trails start at
much higher elevations with a longer more gradual climbs to the peaks.
After visiting the peaks you can either return using the same trails or
descend via a different route. Each trail/route has camping stages with
a nearby water source, as well as tent pads and latrines. The park is
developing a trekker's hut at Mude cave on Sasa trail.
Mount Elgon National Park Uganda also engages in cross boarder tourism
with Mount Elgon Park-Kenya, hand over of visitors to either team takes
place at the Hot Springs. The full trekking circuit to the peaks takes
about 5 days to complete.
All visitors are encouraged to discuss options with an information clerk
at the Mbale, Budadiri, Kapwakai or Kapkwata visitor's centers.
Nine basic campsites are located at strategic points along the trekking
circuit. Please respect park regulations by camping only at designated
campsites. Camping equipment on this Ugandan Safaris must be carried with
Guides And Porters
A trained ranger guide is required on all trekking excursions to show
you the way and enrich your journey by interpreting the environment and
ensuring your safety. Local porters make your trip even easier by carrying
up to 18kgs of supplies, in addition to collecting water, cooking and
preparing the camp. Trained ranger guides and local porters are available
at each trailhead.
