Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth N.P. is situated in the rift valley on the leeward side of the snow-capped Rwenzori mountain range. The park boats open savanna, tropical forests, wetlands, and the Kazinga channel which connects lake Edward and lake George. It’s the true jewel of Uganda’s safari destinations, promising an unforgettable journey into the heart of the animal kingdom. There are two unique sections of the park to consider as you embark on your safari adventure, the Kasenyi plains and Ishasha wilderness. The Kasenyi plains in the north offers lion tracking, game drives, and the boat cruise on the channel. Witness an African elephant, their massive presence commanding attention at every turn. Look out for the elusive leopard, known for its stealth and grace, as well as the mighty tree climbing lion, reigning supreme over the grasslands. Whilst in the park, you may stay longer and add an element of exciting primate tracking adventures to your safari experience. These include chimpanzee tracking in Kyambura gorge and Kalinzu forest reserves, which are part of the protected area. This park offers diverse accommodation.
