Rwenzori mountains national park

Sitting on the border between Uganda and DRC, this park covers the forested slopes of 6 massifs (none volcanic). Between them is steep gorges, covered in forests. It has been referred to by many people as the “mountains of the moon”.

Animals you might hope to see, include Bushbucks, forest elephants, giant forest hogs, black-and-white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, chimpanzees amongst many more.

Alongside other tall mountains, those within the parks are loosing their snow and ice peaks. Experts are unsure what effect this might have.
