Queen Elizabeth National Park
Queen Elizabeth National Park is 440 km from Kampala the capital of Uganda and approximately a 7 – 8 hours drive.

Queen Elizabeth is one of Uganda’s most scenic parks covering an area of about 1,978km2. Stretching from the crater dotted foothills of the Rwenzori ranges in the north to the remote Ishasha River in the south; the park has diverse vegetation ranging from savannah plains and wetlands to gallery and lowland forest. The park’s diverse vegetation is reflected in the list of inhabitants which include over 660 bird species including Albertine endemics, aquatic animals like hippos and crocodiles, buffalo, leopards, the famous tree climbing lions, several monkey species and several other small mammals.

Enjoy game drives in the Kasenyi sector and the remote Ishasha sector, nature walks in the Maramagambo forests, hikes into the bat caves, fishing, birding and a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. In addition, enjoy the dramatic landscape of this part of the rift valley including dozens of enormous craters carved dramatically into rolling green hills, the backdrop of the Rwenzori ranges and the exquisite sunsets at Mweya Peninsula also known as “the beautiful place” as it has dazzled many a soul including even Jeremy Clarkson and the Top Gear crew.
