For those who enjoy being active, hiking vacations are great opportunities to experience East Africa from a different perspective. The smells and sounds of the country are sharper, nature is closer and the views stunning.
If you are interested in an international hiking holiday, why not try an East Africa hiking safari?
Uganda and Tanzania offer world class hiking vacations at a variety of levels.
Most national parks offer supervised walks centred around other activities such as chimp tracking or wildlife viewing. There are also those parks however, where hiking becomes more strenuous and an adventure in itself.
Our tours include the Mountains of the Moon, Mount Elgon, Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru - all providing excellent East Africa hiking safaris for both beginners and serious mountaineers.
Variable regional rainfall patterns make it difficult to predict the best time for hiking. However, as a rule of thumb, the wettest season in western Uganda is March to May.
So for Mgahinga and Rwenzori hikes, it is better to avoid March - May. Be warned however that it can rain at anytime.
Elgon and Tanzanian locations are generally fine for hiking all year round.
