The 1978 km2 Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s most popular park, named after the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, after her visit to the park in 1952. The park is situated on the floor of the Albertine rift valley in a fertile, equatorial area and has beautiful scenery. This impressive park features a fabulously diverse landscape: grassy savannah plains, tropical rainforests, moist acacia woodlands, natural volcanic crater lakes, freshwater lakes, and a variety of wetland habitats. As a result, it has one of the highest biodiversity ratings of any nature reserve in the world, including 95 mammal species and over 610 bird species.

The park’s famous for its tree-climbing lions but also hosts savannah Lions Elephants, Buffalos, Leopards, Hippos, Crocodiles, Giant forest hogs, and plenty of antelope species. The 3 days Queen Elizabeth safari incorporates magical wildlife viewing and the recreational boat cruise along with the 45km long Kazinga Chanel to view some of the highest concentrations of hippos in the world. This trip also offers an optional Chimpanzee tracking encounter in the jungle-filled Kyambura gorge, a beautiful slice of green in the savannah with a habituated troop of chimpanzees.

This is a perfect value-for-money safari that can be customized to your budget and interests – please contact us.
