Queen Elizabeth National Park

Safari-Tree-Climbing-Lion-QENP

Introduction

Traditionally overshadowed by the more famous grassland parks of Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda’s savannah parks are unique among safari destinations on the African continent.

Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP) is Ugandas most visited national park and is often paired with Gorilla trekking in Bwindi and/or Chimp trekking in Kibale Forest. The park is famous for its big cats, including tree-climbing lions and leopards. Game drives in will reveal the parks range of big game including elephants, buffalos, antelopes and warthogs.

Boat safaris take you across the Kazinga Channel that links Lakes Edward and George. Here you’ll find buffalo and elephant coming down to the shore, pelicans rafting together in the sunshine, and plenty of hippos.

There are over 600 species of recorded birds in QENP, and you can even pair a game drive or boat safari with chimp trekking in the mystical forests of Kyambura Gorge.
