Get to Know Rwenzori Mountains National Park

Here you’ll find Mount Stanley, the third-highest peak in Africa, and mind-blowing slopes covered in moorland, bamboo and rich, moist montane forest.

Uganda’s Rwenzori Mountains, also called the Mountains of the Moon, range along the western border with Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The mountainside is draped with huge tree heathers and colorful mosses interspersed with giant lobelias and everlasting flowers, creating a scene reminiscent of JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

The mountains form the core of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, which protects the highest parts of the 120-kilometre-long, 65-kilometre-wide range. The 100,100-hectare national park protects 70 mammals and 217 bird species, including 19 Albertine Rift endemics, as well as some of the world’s rarest vegetation. The range has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
