Cave Adventuring

Mount Elgon is a volcanic mountain. Due to its volcanic process, there was a lot of formation of caves. During the Sebei migration from Ethiopian highlands, they arrived to Kenya and lived in the west of Kenya where Mount Elgon lies and later moved further through the forest where they found Mount Elgon in Uganda, currently Kapchorwa district and south East of Mbale. Because they did not have permanent settlements and homes, they looked for the caves to stay and protection from the hostile karamojong rustlers who used to attack them. Today, the cave acts as a cultural heritage and Sebei ancestral home and a popular site for tourists.

When the 19th Century explorer Joseph Thompson first visited the Mount Elgon region he discovered a series of deep caves in which herds of cattle sheltered and great piles of grain were stored.

    The ancient volcano of Mt. Elgon is penetrated by a suite of highly-unusual caves. The larger caves of tutum, Ngwarisha, Chepnyalil, and Makingeny are neither limestone solution caves, nor lava tubes.
