Safari by day Itinerary: 3 Days Rwenzori Trekking
Start at Trekkers at 1,450 meters and sleep at Sine Hut at 2,596 meters being a height gain of 1,146 meters, or those who are fit and want to proceed to Kalalama Camp at 3,134 meters may do so and apart from the fantastic views of both the cliffs above and views across the lowlands and across Lake Edward in Queen Elisabeth National Park. We start by walking up the valley floor through tall forest trees of the Afro Montane Forest Zone. This is a steady climb for the first six kilometers then after crossing a river it is a steep climb up to Sine Camp.
The forest trees are tall with multitudes of birds and a chance of seeing blue monkeys scampering off through the forest. Enock’s Falls are just 200 meters from Sine Hut and offer a splendid opportunity to capture a great screensaver for your memories as brightly clouded green lichen grows on the many lives hanging from the trees with the waterfall as a background. At Sine Camp 2,596 meters we have wooden huts set between tall forest trees on a narrow ridge where you may sit and enjoy the beautiful forest while you look down at a long set of rapids and waterfall crashing over the rocks.
Some clients prefer to sit outside enjoying the warmth of the campfire and chat with the guides about the mountains and life in their community. Sine is just below the bamboo zone and the area around has many different bird species. 150 meters from the camp is Enock falls which are set in livid green vegetation and hanging vine.
Truly beautiful. During the afternoon you may wish to walk down to Enocks falls where there are many swinging vines covered with bright green lichen and mosses. You may decide to continue down the forest trail about a kilometer to see more of the swinging vines and absorb the beautiful environment before returning to Sine Camp for the night.
You can sleep at Sine Camp, or those who are fit and want to proceed to Kalalama Camp at 3,134 meters may do so, and apart from the fantastic views
Hike up through the Bamboo zone to Kalalama camp 3,134m, stop for a short rest then climb high before crossing a thick forest covered with hanging mosses to a small lobelia garden, and descend through a mossy ridge to Samalira camp at 3174 meters. The distance is approximately 4km with some good steep terrain taking approximately 5 to 6 hours of walking.
