The Uganda Safari tour destination of Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda makes it on the list of Seven (7) incredible Natural wonders of Africa as selected by the National Geographic – a famous travel media platform.
Famed for its fascinating tree climbing lions found in its southern sector of Ishasha, Queen Elizabeth National Park presents such a unique experience to the travelers on safaris in Uganda. Seeing lions climbing trees is not a common phenomenon that is rarely available even in the key wildlife parks of Africa.
Many Africa Safari tour undertakers would expect to encounter the Leopards in trees but not Lions. The lion expectation is only high while driving in Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park to or from the Uganda gorilla safari destination of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. In the mid-morning sun, the lions climb majorly the fig trees and spend time resting on their large beautiful branches. They are believed to be aiming at gaining ground for spotting prey, escaping from the insect bites and ground heat.
Queen Elizabeth National Park comes after Danakil Depression in Ethiopia, Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia, Tsingy Louge in Madagascar, Namaqualand in South Africa, Taghazout in Morocco and Makgadikgadi Salt Pan in Botswana on the list of the National Geographic Natural wonders of Africa. Most of these sites are explored on our adventure vacation safari holidays in Africa.
