Create an itinerary including Mount Stanley
A trip to Mount Stanley offers you the chance to see Africa's third highest mountain, which is part of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park--a World Heritage Site. The two equal summits of the mountain are named after the famous explorer Sir Henry Stanley, and they're surrounded by a few lower Margerita peaks that support glaciers. If you decide to hike toward the summit, be prepared for drastic changes in climate and temperature, from warm foothills to frigid and snowy mountaintops. Put Mount Stanley and other Rwenzori Mountains National Park attractions into our Rwenzori Mountains National Park trip maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Great mountain; quite the approach, so many crazy biomes, ending in a glacier, and it's awesome straddling the Congolese border, at one of the Nile's headwaters.
  • I wish I would like to see the difference
