Pick up from Airport and Proceed to mbaleStop At: Airport Transfer Entebbe, Kampala, Central RegionPick up at 06:30 hours and proceed east, past Mbale to Mount Elgon that straddles the border with Kenya. Mbale lies 3-4 hours from Kampala along a good tarmac road.Mt. Elgon is a 4,321m high extinct volcano which in prehistoric times stood taller than Kilimanjaro does today. Although the mountain straddles the Kenyan border, its loftiest peak, Wagagai, lies within Uganda and is best ascended from the Ugandan side.Mt.
