Mt. Elgon National Park
Mt. Elgon is an extinct volcanoes that first erupted more than 24 million years ago with the largest surface area of any extinct volcanoe in the world [50 km by 80 km]. Mount Elgon National Park is home to over 300 species of birds, including the endangered Lammergeyer. Small antelopes, forest monkeys, elephants and buffalos also live on the mountain side. A climb on Mt. Elgon’s deserted moorlands unveils a magnificent and uncluttered wilderness without the summit-oriented approach common to many mountains. The ultimate goal on reaching the top of Mt. Elgon is not the final ascent to the 4321m Wagagai Peak, but the descent into the vast 40km² caldera.
Some of the most incredible sceneries lie on the foothills of mountain Elgon. The sipi river that flows out forming the three biggest series of waterfalls in Uganda. The sunset as viewed on the sipi falls level is compared to none.
