The mountains of Karamoja are an exciting alternative to the more strenuous climbs in East Africa with many of the same attractions, a milder climate, lower elevation and requires no special equipment or technical experience.
Our expeditions are a mix of rich encounters with the Uganda’s highland people, breathtaking views and unique sights along the trails and unique campsites where you can enjoy the sunset, the stars and sunrise over the planes of Karamoja.
Hiking & Trekking
Mount Kadam is the second highest and volcanic mountain of the Karamoja region with the highest peak at 3,006 metres.
The night before the hike we sleep in a basic hotel located in Nakapiripirit town (30min drive from the hike starting point). The hike is guided by experienced local guides and porters are available on request. Food, snacks, camping gear and water is included.
Due the geographical location, the mountain is home to many surrounding tribes: Pokot, Karamojong, Gishu, Tepeth, Sebei and the Kadama. The inhabitants are majorly agriculturalist and live in small settlements. The camp will be set with front row seats of the sunset and sunrise. The afternoon will be spent exploring a high altitude rain forest and different view points.
