3 Days Mount Elgon Hiking

3 days mount Elgon hiking in Uganda takes you to Eastern Uganda where you will engage in mountain climbing/hiking, a visit to sipi falls and the source of the Nile. The Safari starts and ends in Kampala. Mount Elgon is an amazing feature found in the East of Uganda and also shared with Kenya, it is said to be the 4th highest in East Africa standing at 4,321m high, and its an extinct volcano with the main activity of hiking. It is slightly tricky to climb to the top (Wagagai peak), and hence hikers are expected to be fit enough.

The mountain is also home to the magnificent Sipi falls, gorges, hot springs, caves, also different animal species like the elephants, forest monkeys, small antelopes, buffaloes as well as around 300 bird species.

What happens if the jeep breaks down?

Our Safari vehicles are serviced and maintained to a very high standard before, during and after every safari. The age of the vehicles in our fleet varies but most were built between 2008 and 2013. If your vehicle does break down and it cannot be fixed on the road, we will request a rescue jeep which will come for you so that you can continue your safari with minimum impact. Whilst every effort is made to prevent this from happening, the driving is rough and the vehicles do take quite a pounding!

We believe in value for money. Every guest would like to have the most reliable and comfortable vehicles on safari. In response to the clients’ needs, we have a very strict vehicle replacement policy that ensures a young fleet at all times. We have a total fleet of 225 well-maintained motor vehicles, predominantly 4-wheel drives. This does away with the problem of sub-contracting vehicles and driver-guides, which may compromise the quality of services. Our safari vehicles are specifically converted for maximum space and comfort. All of them have hatched roof and sliding windows to facilitate good viewing and convenient photography during game drives and sight seeing.
