Uganda has two wonderful pearls: the Ruwenzori Mountains with the world's most mystical and unique long-distance trail, the Central Circuit and the mountain gorillas of the Bwindi-Impenetrable National Park.
In the Rwenzori-Mountains you walk through an incomparable dream landscape. The multi-day trekking tour on the Central Circuit leads you through mystical rainforest with giant Senezia and Lobelia. In total, five different vegetation zones are traversed. Nowhere in the world is the density of plants so high as in the Ruwenzori Mountains. The whole thing is framed by a beautiful mountain scenery. For climbers, the tour on the Central Circuit with the ascent of the third highest peak in Mt Stanley massif, the Margherita Peak (5,109m), offers a special highlight.
Overnight stays in mountain huts. During the trekking you will be accompanied by an experienced guide.
In the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park live the last mountain gorilla population. As the gentle and peaceful giants allow us to have people around them, you are fortunate enough to be able to observe, photograph and film these animals up close.
Besides these two special pearls Uganda offers with its many national parks and its elephants, giraffes, zebras, Uganda kobs, lions, leopards and hippos exceptional wildlife experiences. With over 300 bird species, it is also a true bird paradise.

You will never forget a visit to the Mountains of the Moon and there is no more experienced guide to take you there than Hezron Kule. Some years ago, I was lucky enough to join a party of 5 on a trek of the Central Circuit....
