Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park is a beautiful, diverse park on the equator. It has two lakes, George and Edward, which are connected by the scenic Kazinga Channel.

There are also crater lakes to the north, grassy plains, tropical forests and gorges. Due to its diversity, it has the highest number of mammals in any of the Ugandan Parks with 10 types of primate, and you can even see the elusive sitatungwa and shoebill stork in the swamp areas around Lake George. The remote area of Ishasha in the south is a lovely remote area which is famous for the tree climbing lions. 

Did you know?

  • There are only a few lodges around the park and they are spread out, so driving between the different areas can take some time. 
  • A packed lunch is the best idea when on day trips to the park. The lodges can arrange this for you.
  • You can go chimpanzee tracking in the Kyambura Gorge.
  • A boat trip on the Kazinga channel is a great way to see the masses of hippo and crocodiles and is great for birding.
  • The lions climb the trees to try and keep cool.
  • From Kyambura Lodge you can visit the tree planting conservation project where over 5000 trees have been planted by their clients and the local community.
