Dear Israel, This February 2015 we went on the 7 days trek in Rwenzori Mountains with Rwenzori Ranges Guides and Escort Association and had the most amazing experience. The Bukurungu Trail was quite a challenge, but a unique experience. Our support team with Denis was very knowledgeable, experienced and professional - they really made the trip exceptional. The scenery was spectacular. Getting through all the different plant zones we felt like going back to prehistoric times. We were exploring different vegetation zones, like a tropical forest, Heather and lincen zone, Alpine, Rock and moor land. We did 6-7 hours hiking each day and some sections were fairly steep, both uphill and downhill. Denis pointed out animals, insects, and plant life along the way and insisted that we ask any questions we might have about the beautiful surroundings. We saw some chameleons, Colobus monkeys, Rwenzori turacos and a number of medicinal plants, admired wonderful incredible plants and snow on the peaks close to the equator! We were hearing to chimpanzees, but didn't manage to spot any. We reached the altitude of 5000 meters and it was still full of plants, warm and no altitude sickness. We took small breaks along the way to catch our breath, and Denis was very observant of the groups' abilities and accommodating to our needs. Each day we arrived at camp around 2-4pm where we could relax and explore the surrounding area. The cooks were excellent and we always had tea and a fire prepared for our arrival which was very nice and warm! The Bukurungu Trail is an amazing experience for everybody who loves real wild nature. You will see unbelievable sceneries with 4 amazing lakes (Mughuli, Bukurungu, Bujuku and Irene) on your way, crossing Mountain Rivers, waterfalls and enjoying raw nature. Trekking in the Rwenzori mountains for us was exhausting, but gave us a lot of satisfaction - incredible place, great friendly people. Undoubtedly, this is the best wildlife available on this continent. I would like to thank Rwenzori Ranges Guides and Escort Association for perfect service. It’s a company with a lot of knowledge and experience. Read more

Hadas & Asaf, Israel

the trek to the Rwenzori was amazing with a staff that made us feel really comfortable and safe. the guides, the cookers, the porters and the mountains were amazing! comments: 1. We think that the last 2 days should be divided into 3 days in order to make the walk each day a bit shorter. 2. In our opinion, the walk each day should start earlier in order to reach the camp in day light. the trek was perfect, we had a lot of fun and it is definitely a unique experience! we will advise our friends to do the trek with RRGEA!! thank you very much for a great time!
