Located on the border between Uganda and Kenya, Mount Elgon is also the oldest and largest solitary volcanic mountain in East Africa and is home to over 300 bird species, including the endangered Lammergeyer. An ascent of the moorland of Mt. Elgon with its magnificent and untouched wilderness is a special experience. The ultimate goal of reaching the summit of Mt. Elgon is not the final ascent to the 4321m high Wagagai Peak, but the descent into the huge 40km² caldera. You hike with a team of guide, porters and cook, spend the night in tents and experience fantastic nature.
