Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s most popular safari destination. The Park covers an area of 1,978 square kilometers (763 square miles) and includes both Lake George and Lake Edward which are joined by the Kazinga Channel. The channel attracts a varied range of animals and birds to its banks. Hippos, buffaloes, elephants, crocodiles, brightly-colored Kingfishers, and the African Fish Eagle are commonly spotted. The Park is rich in biodiversity; it boasts being home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of hippos and Nile crocodiles while the fertile soil of the savannas and lush forests make it a perfect habitat for wildlife, including 10 species of primates, including chimpanzees, and over 600 bird species.

 The park has magnificent views of the Rwenzori Mountains along its border and enormous craters dramatically dropping into rolling green hills. Not to be forgotten, the Ishasha plains whose trees are home not only to singing birds and primates but also to the fanciful tree climbing lions who climb onto sturdy limbs for napping and taking in the view.
