‘The magnificent aftermath of violent volcanic activity’
Named after an extinct volcano, Mount Elgon National Park is situated on the border of Uganda and Kenya, northeast of Lake Victoria. The park is amazingly split into two halves, one half in Uganda and the other in Kenya. The park is a habitat to numerous mammal species including; buffaloes, elephants, antelopes, monkeys, and over 144 bird species including; Jackson’s francolin, Hartlaub’s turaco, Eastern bronze-naped pigeon, Tacazza sunbird and the endangered lammergeier.
The park has massive number of attractions; caves, waterfalls, cliffs, gorges, calderas, mesas, hot springs,and mountain peaks. The park’s peculiar caves are source of natural salt to a great number of wild animals which visit in the night to lick the salt in the cave walls. The caves also have an intriguing mass of ancient paintings found near the trailhead at Budadiri. Bird watching, cave exploration, hiking the Elgon, nature walks and trails, camping photography, are some of the adventures to enjoy in Mount Elgon National Park.
