Mount Elgon Climbing Tour Safari – Mount Elgon Climbing
Mount Elgon Climbing Tour Safari is less crowded than Kilimanjaro, just as spectacular, and since there are less people on the slopes, you have a much greater chance of spotting wildlife. There are several waterfalls on the slopes, and there are even hot springs to soak in inside the crater! Climbing the mountain is an experience not soon forgotten.
Mount Elgon Climbing Tour Safari peak can be climbed from the Uganda or Kenya sides, but as of late, the best route is from Uganda, even though it is a longer walk. I know only the Uganda side of the mountain, and thus this will be the side mostly described.
To get to the trailhead, make your way by bus to Tororo and then Mbale. From Mbale catch a “matatu” (mini-bus) to Budadiri. You must arrange everything for the climb (permits, porters, and a guide) in the national park service station in Budadiri.
Attractions along the route include a good chance of seeing Columbus and Blue Monkeys, as well as other wildlife, and side trips to waterfalls and hot springs.
