The Mweya Lodge near the Kazinga Channel is very famous among tourists, as many birds, hippo’s, buffalo’s, elephants and, if you’re lucky, lions can be spotted from the lodge. The park has become famous because of the great variety of wild animals despite the fact that many animals have been killed during the war between Uganda and Tanzania. Nowadays, over 90 mammals and over 500 different species of birds can be found in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Furthermore, in the park a few craters can be found filled with saltwater lakes. Flamingo’s can be spotted there!
The Ishasha sector is in the Southern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park and is currently notably recognized for its resident tree climbing lions that are an exceptional attraction and one among the highlights on all safaris taken within Queen Elizabeth National park. The lions are now and again spotted hanging on braches of huge fig trees whereas the Uganda Kob (which are the major food to these lions) graze in the plains of the Ishasha sector.
Queen Elizabeth National Park is open all-year-long, but spotting animals is best from January to February and June to July (the Dry seasons). In the Wet seasons from March to May and August to December the park is beautifully green and lush.
Elephant and buffalo can be found here, as well as kob, sitatunga, forest hog, hippo, crocodile, lions and the occasional chimpanzee. in the southern side of the park – Ishasha area – you can spot tree climbing lions if you are lucky.
Uganda is much more than a Gorilla destination. The country has beautiful national parks where you can spot the Big 5, enjoy adventure activities and cultural experiences!
