Mountain Elgon National park has an excellent location on the border of eastern Uganda and western Kenya, a lively and cosmopolitan home to over 300 species of birds and dangerous animals. It is a mountainous regional landscape with cool heights for those living near it.

The park also provides refuge for flora and fauna on its higher altitudes which are protected by national park in Uganda and Kenya. This creates an extensive trans-boundary conservation area known as a UNESCO man and Biosphere reserve.
