3 Days Mount Muhabura Volcano Hike in Uganda
Mount Muhabura is one of the extinct volcanoes of Mgahinga in southwestern Uganda. It is the tallest among the three volcanoes standing at 4,127m above sea level and lying at the boarder of Uganda in Mgahinga national park and Rwanda in Volcanoes national park. It takes 8-9 hours to drive from Kampala to Kisoro where this volcano is located.
Day 1: Travelling from Kampala to Kisoro
Your breakfast will be followed by a briefing from our company driver guide who will have come to pick you for the tour to Muhabura. You will start the journey towards the west of the country via Masaka. The first stopover is at the equator in Kayabwe and then we shall proceed through Masaka to Mbarara town where we shall have our lunch. The journey continues after a small relaxation of the lunch break, passing through Kabale town to Kisoro where we spend the night.
Day 2: Hiking Mount Muhabura
You’ll meet the driver guide after your breakfast and he’ll lead you to the starting point of the activity for a short briefing, a walking stick and a guide who will take you through the trails to the peak of the mountain which is about 12km far. It takes approximately 8 hours to climb and slope to the base and so you’ll be required to move with packed food for lunch and water. The mountain is covered with varied vegetation including shrubs and thickets. At the end of the trip, you’ll check in at your lodge , have dinner and rest.
Before the trip starts, prepare a rain jacket, strong shoes/ hiking boots, a head cap, insect repellent
Day 3: Travelling back to Kampala.
When you wake up in the morning, you’ll have breakfast at your lodge and start the return journey. An hour drive from Kisoro to Kabale takes us to Lake Bunyonyi for canoeing on the deepest lake in Africa that has multiple islands. Proceed with the journey to Mbarara town for lunch and thereafter continue to Kampala at your hotel or to the airport.
