Uganda Sipi Falls2

Straddling the border of Kenya and Uganda, Mount Elgon National Park is home to some of the best trekking in East Africa. Emerging from tropical montane forest, the extinct volcano Mt Elgon has five main peaks, with the highest, Wagagai (at 4321m) accessible from the Ugandan side of the park. Visitors can also enjoy shorter hikes up Tororo Rock and in the surrounding caves and forest, or do a spot of bird-watching from Sipi Falls. With fresh natural pools and fantastic views across the plains, it’s the perfect place to relax and cool down.
