Mt. Stanley

Mt. Stanley is the jewel right at the heart of Africa.  Arguably, the most enjoyable climb on the continent, it requires some class 3 scrambling, glacier travel, a little rappelling, a camera and high expectations.  You won’t be disappointed!  Standing on the top of Margherita Peak at 16,763 ft. (5,109m) gives you incredible views of Mt. Speke, Uganda and the Congo.  If there’s time and you have the energy, you can descend back to Stanley Glacier and climb Mt. Stanley’s second highest peak, Alexander Peak.  In fact, there are 9 peaks on Mt. Stanley that could keep you busy for a few days.
