There are not many tourist attractions in Kasese itself however the town is more a gateway to the Queen Elizabeth National Park and the stunning Rwenzori mountains, however that status may change should the local airport be upgraded to full international airport status as planned. (However, those familiar with Uganda that things rarely progress as planned with money frequently running out!). Kasese is probably the best place to stay when visiting these attractions literally bordering Queen Elizabeth National park and all it has to offer and just 16 miles from Rwenzori Mountains National Park in the Rift Valley.
The Rwenzori Mountains National Park is a world-class hiking and mountaineering destination.
This national park is home to 70 mammal species and also contains over 375 species of birds.
