|You could either boda-boda here from Fort Portal for about UGX8,000, or walk here in about 3 hours on the Fort Portal Walk 1.|
|This viewpoint is the end of the road before you drop down 1,000m to the Semliki Valley and Lake Albert. To know you’re in the right place, look out for the radio tower at the top of the hill, or check out Fort Portal Walk 1 for concise directions.|
|At the viewpoint, look out for the very friendly Paul Rwabwogo (256) 0772 485 602. He owns (and can often be found on) the land here and has ambitious plans to build a campsite, cottages and a restaurant – as well as a trail heading down to some caves and game viewing below. For the immediate future, he promises that cold drinks (thanks to a solar-powered fridge) will be available from early 2017. He can also help you arrange transport back to Fort Portal should you be too tired to walk!|
