Uganda Wildlife Authority to spend money on Rwenzori infrastructure


The Uganda Wildlife Authority is planning to spend about US$1 million in the Rwenzori Mountain National Park in the coming years for the construction of new tracks, board walks, and new bridges to allow easier access for tourists coming to walk and climb the mountains.

The melting of the various ice fields and glaciers has made climbing the peaks of the mountain range more difficult, as deep ravines have opened up, which were previously covered by solid ice, necessitating new tracks and bridges.

The expenditure is part of UWA’s strategy to improve parks with major tourism potential and provide facilities, which can attract more visitors to the park.
