Mt. Elgon National Park

The 1,145km2 Mount Elgon National Park protects the higher slopes of Mount Elgon,an extinct volcano, on the Uganda-Kenya border. The mountain, which measures 80km in the diameter, once towered above Kilimanjaro's current 5900m

Visitors can make extended hikes, requiring a minimum of 3 days, to reach the summits which lie along the jagged rim on a giant caldera,8km across. Less demandingly, visitors can take day/half day walks through forest on the lower edge of the park or simply relax in resorts overlooking a chain of delightful waterfalls just outside the par at Sipi.
