is 26 km from Kitale town. The Park extends up the mountain through forest, then moorlands, to the rim of the volcanic caldera. Several peaks can be climbed from there, including Koitobos and Sudek.
The forest elephants
They inhabit the extraordinarily thick Elgon forests and are very difficult to see. They are much smaller than their cousins of the plains (savanna) --- an adaptation to life in the thick undergrowth.
A KWS Kapkuro banda
These self-service bandas are located inside the Chorlim Gate, Mt. Elgon NP. They are very convenient for visitors who wish to spend 2 or more days on the mountain. Unfortunately, they are few and must necessarily be booked in advance for busy periods.
Giant Forest tree
This huge podo tree is one of several giants in the Mount Elgon forest. You can try to find out how many people are needed to encircle the trunk. It is likely to be 13 - 15, depending on how many are children.
