Mt.Elgon national park
The 1,145 km2 Mount Elgon National Park is located on the 4321m-high Mount Elgon in eastern Uganda. It’s a home to large mammals, including elephant and buffalo and 300 species of birds.
The local Bagisu people named their candidate – as seen from their side of the mountain – as Masaba after their founding deity.
Trails of varying length explore the forest around the Forest Exploration Centre passing caves, waterfalls and viewpoints and providing the opportunity to observe birds – including African goshawk, Chubb’s cisticola, white-chinned prinia and African blue flycatcher – and primates.
