The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna, shady, humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds. Set against the backdrop of the jagged Ruwenzori Mountains, the park’s magnificent vistas include dozens of enormous craters carved dramatically into rolling green hills, panoramic views of the Kazinga Channel with its banks lined with hippos, buffalo and elephants, and the endless Ishasha plains, whose fig trees hide lions ready to pounce on herds of unsuspecting Uganda Kob. As well as its outstanding wildlife attractions, Queen Elizabeth National Park has a fascinating cultural history. There are many opportunities for visitors to meet the local communities and enjoy storytelling, dance, music and more.
Day 1: Queen Elizabeth National park
Set off on the southbound road for the park. Stop at the Equator to experience how you can be in both hemispheres at once, visit the Royal Drum makers for a short talk and continue through the lush hills of the Park with a game drive enroute, arriving in the evening. After lunch at the lodge, have an evening boat ride on the Kazinga Channel which separates Lakes Edward and George, viewing a variety of game on the banks, seen drinking at the water's edge as Buffalo linger in the shallows and a tremendous variety of birds grace the grasses on the shores including the Great White, Pink-Backed Pelicans, Great and Long-Tailed Cormorants, Open-Billed Stork, African Jacana etc. Overnight
