Why Queen Elizabeth National Park?

Yes, Uganda is famous for its exciting gorilla trekking safaris that are on everyone’s bucket list, but the country also offers a blend of classic savanna safaris & memorable forest-based chimpanzee trekking safaris, both of which can be found in the game-rich Queen Elizabeth National Park – Uganda’s premier game viewing destination.

Experience The park is located within the southwest of the country & is one of the most biologically diverse parks in the world, with an impressive bird list of 610 recorded species – more than the British Isles!

Its biggest drawcard though is the iconic tree-climbing lions – a rare habit of lions - that can only be seen in 2 African destinations: Lake Manyara in Tanzania & Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.

The lions climb trees to have a better vantage point for spotting the various prey that can be seen loitering around the park. These big cats can easily pounce on their food without easily being noticed. They also climb trees to escape the heat from the ground & get shelter from the rain.

Apart from the fact that Queen Elizabeth National Park offers the perfect blend between a classic savanna style safari & a chimpanzee trekking safari in the silver forest of Kyambura Gorge, the park’s real reward lies in its ability to offer a diverse range of safari activities.

Activities Boat cruises along the Kazinga Channel is usually a highlight, given the rewarding game viewing & bird watching en-route, while Kyambura Gorge offers a lush green forest to explore, home to chimpanzees & other primates.

Savanna game viewing activities include open 4x4 drives while chimpanzee trekking safaris are on foot – an exciting contrast & a wonderful way to connect with Uganda’s fauna & flora.

When To Travel Queen Elizabeth National Park is open all year long, but wildlife viewing is at its best from January to February & June to September (the dry seasons).

However, this scenic park is at its most beautiful in the wet seasons from March to May & October to December when bird watching is at its best.
