MCU runs a range of different trips and events inside and occasionally abroad. Check out the calendar to stay informed! Please also check out our Whatsapp groups and the MCU Facebook page for updates and current changes.
Some of the usual trips and events of the MCU include the following:
Weekly climbing events at the quarry in Muyenga
We meet Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays in Muyenga to climb. This is a great opportunity for experienced climbers to stay fit and for newbies to learn to climb. We organise belay clinics on a regular basis, where you can learn how to belay your climbing partner. Gear can be rented at the event. Non-MCU members can try climbing once for 20K inclusive of climbing fee and equipment rental. Please sign up to our list either in the MCU climbing Whatsapp group or on Facebook.
Tuesdays: Clarke Quarry, 4 – 7 pm, Saturdays: Clarke Quarry, 1:30 – 5:30 pm, Sundays: Clarke Quarry, 1:30 – 5:30 pm
MCU-KTN Kayaking Weekends
Uganda is world famous for its whitewater. Here in Uganda MCU members have the unique opportunity to learn to kayak with Kayak The Nile in one of the greatest destinations for it in the world. Each month we hold an MCU-KTN weekend of kayaking lessons, we host lessons on both the Saturday and Sunday for everyone from complete beginners who have never been in a kayak through to advanced coaching. MCU members receive great special discounts. A social weekend of kayaking, swimming, and learning.

Bi-weekly Mountain Biking with Bike Shop Uganda
Every second Sunday, we meet early in the morning at Bike Shop Uganda in Kampala for a half-day mountain bike trip. Bikes and helmet are available for rental. Check out our calender for upcoming mountain bike trips and sign up!
Luwazi Rock Climbing Weekends
Luwazi Rock is roughly a 45mins drive from Kampala and offers a number of different sport routes of varying abilities. Camping out on top of the rock, then climbing again Sunday morning, or join only for one day – Luwazi is always worth the trip.
This trip will be for experienced climbers only – no beginners please. If you have not already passed the MCU Belay Test, make sure you are going with someone who will belay you. If you do not have your own climbing gear, gear can be rented from the Club for the trip. MCU membership is required to join this trip.
For those who stay overnight: There will be a goat roast on Saturday night. The tentative menu includes fire-roasted goat, roasted potatoes, beans and kachumbari. Cold Beers are available for purchase, order in advance.
Keep a look out for Luwazi trips in the calendar and on the MCU Facebook page to sign up. Limited spaces – first come, first serve.
Monthly MCU Social
Every last Friday night of the month, we run a social event to meet new and old members, play games, watch outdoor movies and tell stories about past trips and plan upcoming trips. Check out the calendar to stay posted!
