Prepare for a scenic road trip to the breathtaking Queen Elizabeth National Game Park. This park is a nature lover’s paradise, boasting a diverse landscape of bushland, savannah plains, forests, and wetlands. The Kazinga Channel, which flows through the park, connects to Lake George and Lake Edward and serves as a vital source of water for the park’s abundant wildlife and bird population. With one of the highest concentrations of hippos in the world, the park is a must-see destination for any wildlife enthusiast.
Take an afternoon boat ride on the Kazinga Channel, where you will have the opportunity to see a variety of animals up close. As the sun beats down, the channel becomes a popular spot for animals to cool off and drink, making it the perfect time to spot crocodiles, hippos, buffalos, and more, as they immerse themselves in the water. The animals may be unbothered by your presence, allowing you to take photos and observe them at a comfortable distance
Start your day off before dawn with a delicious breakfast to begin a game drive during the “golden hours” of the day. This is the perfect time to witness the savannah inhabitants awaken and go about their day, such as elephants, buffalos, warthogs, kobs, and antelopes. In the afternoon, take a hike in the Kyambura Gorge, a geological wonder known as the “valley of apes.” This area is home to several primate species such as vervet monkeys, chimpanzees, baboons, and red-tailed monkeys.
Experience the thrill of lion tracking in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park with a team of lion researchers. The Ishasha sector is famous for its tree-climbing lions, and you will have the opportunity to see them as they climb and relax in the big fig tree branches. These lions are particularly active during the evening and night, when they hunt for their prey. Join the team as they track the daily routine of a pride of lions. End the day with a relaxing afternoon at the pool.
