Challenger tour and travel Limited has multiple scenecaries to take you through in uganda.

Below are some of the sites to visit.


Mgahinga Gorilla National Park protects Uganda’s portion of the Virunga Conservation Area. This volcanic region spreads through Uganda, Rwanda and the D.R.C. and is home to over 300 mountain gorillas.
With spectacular views, a wealth of primates and some serious hiking, Mgahinga is a great alternative to Bwindi if you are considering a gorilla safari tour.


The Semuliki Valley lies in western-most Uganda at the base of the Albertine Rift and forms part of the great Ituri Forest that stretches into Central Africa – perhaps the densest jungle in East Africa.
Comprised of the Semuliki Wildlife Reserve and Semuliki National Park, it offers beautiful and unspoilt scenery, hot springs and fantastic bird watching; the only park in Uganda composed primarily of tropical lowland forest.
The Semuliki Valley is divided into two sectors by the northern Rwenzori foothills. To the northeast as far as Lake Albert is the Semuliki Wildlife Reserve. To the west lies the Semuliki National Park; its rich lowland jungle extending into the D.R.C.

The Central African rainforest is host to several species of bird, plant and mammal found no where else in Uganda, such as the pygmy antelope.

The Sempaya Hot Springs are two mineral-rich hot springs that send jets of boiling water (130oC) up to two meters high and are well worth a visit – see an egg boiled in the water in less than 10 minutes. Incidentally, the springs are a source of salt for many animals and attract large numbers of shorebirds.


The Rwenzori Mountains National Park is a World Heritage Site of outstanding beauty. Here the magnificent ‘Mountains of the Moon' rise from tropical rainforest into glacial peaks over 5000mhigh.

With near permanent mists enveloping the highest peaks and bizarre vegetation dotting its slopes, Rwenzori offers superb trekking and incredible scenery. Many climbers consider this to be the most challenging mountaineering in Africa.


The Rwenzoris are Africa’s tallest mountain range and lie on the Uganda – D.R.C. border. They are thought to be the legendary ‘Mountains of the Moon’ described by Ptolemy and are beaten in altitude by only the free standing Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya.

They consist of six massifs that range up to 5,109m above sea level, in a 120km long range: Mount Stanley (5,109m), Mount Speke (4,890m), Mount Baker (4,843m), Mount Emin (4,798m), Mount Gessi (4,715m) and Mount Luigi di Savoia (4,627m).


Lake Mburo National park is located in the southern part of Uganda in the present Kiruhura district. The park covers an area of 260 sq km.It was named after the famous Lake Mburo which is found inside the park. The park harbours several fauna species which cannot easily be found elsewhere in Uganda. These include Zebras, common duikers, Impala, Bohor reedbuck, Buffaloes, and birds. Lake Mburo is recorded as the best place in the country where you can see the gigantic eland antelope, as well as zebra, topi, impala, and several acacia-associated birds. The sitatunga antelope is confined to swamp interiors and the Klipspringer is occasionally observed in rocky areas. Only two diurnal primates occur at Lake Mburo; the Vervet monkey and olive baboon.


Queen Elizabeth National Park is the gem in Uganda’s crown. The most popular and accessible of the Ugandan savannah reserves, it boasts one of the most diverse eco-systems in Africa.

Savannah, rainforest, wetlands and crater lakes are home to 95 species of mammal (the highest in any Ugandan park) and 610 bird species (perhaps the highest of any African reserve).


Murchison Falls Conservation Area is the largest protected area in Uganda and home to the awesome Murchison Falls. Here the longest river in the world is forced through a narrow cleft and into a 43m drop.
A low lying and hot park with rugged savannah and dense forest that hosts 76 species of mammal, an incredible 460 bird species and the largest chimpanzee population in East Africa


Mount Elgon is the oldest and largest free standing volcano in East Africa, the eighth highest mountain in Africa and is protected by two national parks. It sits on the Uganda - Kenya border, 4321m tall, offering spectacular scenery and great hiking at a variety of levels.

Its 3500 km2 host a variety of altitudinal plants from mountain forest to strange giant lobelia, 300 species of bird, hot springs, caves and beautiful waterfalls.
Mt. Elgon is accessible from both Uganda and Kenya, although its highest peak, Wagagai (4,321m), lies within Ugandan territory. Despite the altitude, this is not an incredibly difficult climb and does not require specialist mountaineering equipment.

There are five major peaks in the park: Wagagai (4,321m)

Elgon’s caldera is one of the largest intact calderas in the world.
