Queen Elizabeth National Park

WHY VISIT QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK

Uganda’s most popular and accessible park and with good reason. Most famous for the tree-climbing lions, the park is also home to most of the big game found in the more famous East African parks, but without the crowds. Kyambura Gorge is home to a small chimpanzee population and an afternoon boat trip on the Kazinga Channel offers a different wildlife perspective. Herds of elephant come to drink at the water’s edge, whilst colourful water birds wade in the shallows alongside fishermen tending their nets in the setting sun.  

  • Great game drives and a genuine East Africa safari experience without the crowds on our Highlights of Uganda holiday idea
  • Take a sunset cruise along the Kazinga Channel for birding, hippos and great photos
  • Head into the steep Kyambura Gorge to search for the seasonal troop of chimpanzees
  • Keep looking at those fig trees for lions lounging in the branches

 A LITTLE MORE ABOUT QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK

Queen Elizabeth National Park is located in the western arm of the Great East African Rift Valley, and encompasses Lake Edward and Lake George. The park is split into two areas, the northern sector in Mweya which has more game but more people, and the remote southern sector at Ishasha. The journey along the Kazinga Channel from Mweya is one of the most interesting for game viewing, as it is said to hold the world’s largest concentration of hippo.
