Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park offers a classic safari with a few twists. The impressive variety of habitats include acacia woodland, grass savannah, lakes, rivers, dense papyrus swamps, rainforest and extinct volcanic crater cones with lakes.

The park hosts the famous tree-climbing lions in magnificent giant fig trees, elephants, lions, buffaloes, leopards, Uganda kob, giant forest hogs, hippos, crocodiles and a variety of other species. Bird-watchers will be especially delighted with 610 species. And, for something a bit different, you can also trek for chimpanzees in the rainforest of Kyambora Gorge.

Game drives and scenic nature walks are the order of the day, while boat cruises along the Kazinga Channel of Lake Edward will have bird-watchers ticking off many species.

Visitors can reach the park by road from Kampala (6-7 hour drive) or by flying for 2 hours from Entebbe to Kasese Airport, or the park’s airstrip. The park is easily combined with both Bwindi Impenetrable and Kibale National Parks.

We would prefer to hand-craft a safari to this area, just for you. Contact us to make an enquiry.
