Views: 57 Visited: Aug 2018 Reviewed: Sep 04, 2019

I have been experiencing Queen Elizabeth National Park for a number of times both guiding my clients or doing my tours, biding and other activities. I have found it very nice and rewarding with a number of wildlife, boat cruise, birds and many other things.

All my tours to QENP have been so rewarding for the best knowledge I have about it, I recommend this touristic destination for the most stunning, rewarding, and amazing wildlife experience. read more

Oasis during the dry season

Uganda's crown jewel

Views: 502 Visited: Nov 2015 Reviewed: Jan 25, 2017

Uganda is called the pearl of Africa and, in my opinion, QENP is Uganda's crown jewel.
We were not in the park more than a few minutes when we saw a bird of prey feasting on a feathered kill. Moments later we spotted a tree-climbing lion.
Aside from the Kazinga Channel, which is riddled with tourists and wasn't to my liking, the park feels relatively open and not too crowded. I enjoyed watching a lovely lioness for several hours one afterno... read more

Awesome Adventure in Queen Elizabeth National Park

Views: 509 Visited: Nov 2015 Reviewed: Jan 14, 2016

The park is known to have the highest concentration wildlife in Uganda. Tree-climbing lions can be seen draped in trees in the Ishasha sector, and the variety of birds is spectacular! Over 612 bird species have been recorded in the area among which include the Lappet-faced Vultures, the rare shoe bill stork, pick-backed pelicans, black bee-eater, palm-nut and the African skimmer.

The launch trip along the Kazinga Channel connecting Lakes Ge... read more

Hunted at Queen

Views: 507 Visited: Aug 2002 Reviewed: Sep 26, 2015

If you camp, be sure you can get a fire lit. Backup matches, kerosene. Be sure. Because the fire really can help keep the predators away, and the lions are curious.
On our third or fourth safari in Queen, we saw a pair of young males, manes just coming in, near the peninsula. That night, they found us. What's that? That's lions.
Sniffing around the tent, licking their paws; hyenas in the distance; all the other wildlife is gone; for abo... read more

Ultimate trip to Queen Elizabeth Nationa park.

Views: 482 Visited: Feb 2015 Reviewed: Sep 17, 2015

If I have seen beauty, it was in Queen Elizabeth National park. The park has a variety of animals starting from the small ones like squirrels to the largest ones like the elephants. It has the fascinating tree climbing lions that we saw relaxing in trees and truly one would say they are the King of the jungle. The Kazinga channel it self is a gem where you see hippo and various animals on the water banks quenching their thirst. The pied kingfi... read more

Albertine explore

This is the second largest national park in Uganda and covering an area of 197800 ha found in the Albertine rift valley. The area was affected by Rinderpest and smallpox in 1890s and then the arrival of tsetse flies at the beginning of 20 century. In 1910 the seriousness of nagana and human sleeping sickness led the officials to move the inhabitants to areas free of the tsetse flies leaving the area vacant. In 1925, the Lake George game reser... read more

Shutterbug delight

I now know why this park is so popular. Yes, it's more crowded than other parks in Uganda and Rwanda, but it's so scenic and has such a large number of animal life that it's ok.
Loved the food here for some reason. Def try to do a boat tour, too. read more

Where lions climb trees!

Views: 846 Visited: Jul 2012 Reviewed: Feb 04, 2014

If you find yourself in Uganda and you want a day off in the wild, this is an amazing park to visit.
Getting there from Kampala has varied means and very pocket friendly. We are three of us and we board a bus headed Kasese. One of us is a Ugandan and knows the place quite well.

In Kasese, there are many taxis for hire. They accept day trips in the park and charge from between $100 to $120 a day. I find it quite a cool bargain for three. T... read more

Diverse diverse diverse. And big.

Although a long way from any big cities, Queen Elizabeth NP is fairly accessible, as African parks go. Several good-sized roads criss-cross the park, allowing you to get a good feel for the variety of landscapes here.
Savannahs allow great views of herds of elephants.
The Kazinga Channel is really the draw here. This is a good time to have a guide, as different pockets of wildlife can be found in the varying terrains surrounding this river ... read more

No Big Game But Totally Worth It

Views: 570 Visited: Dec 2012 Reviewed: May 03, 2013

Queen Elizabeth National Park is referred to as the "Pearl of Africa". In December, we set out to see this marvel. You can access QENP via chartered flights to kasese, mweya or ishasha airstrips but we decided to travel by road from kampala, mbarara town via katunguru to Bushenyi. This trip as we found out is extremely tiresome and boring, a good 5.5 hrs 400km journey. It can be made enjoyable by having short breaks in Lake Mburo, Kibale Fores... read more

Flamingos and Hippos

Views: 562 Visited: Dec 1993 Reviewed: Apr 22, 2013

Before there was much of a park here, this area was free to roam; staying in the sweet village of Katwe on Lake Edward in 1990 was charming and difficult to leave. Over one hill we discovered sections down in a valley - - explained as the salt-works (where water dehydrated out of various ponds). Over another hill was a small lake with multitudes of “lesser” pink flamingos; you now take tours to visit these.

The lake was enchanting; at dus... read more

Queen Elizabeth national Park is one of the very famous parks in Uganda because it is on the syllabus for the primary education. Its beautiful nature is well talked about and any one would feel the urge to travel there. Immediately after the university one of my girl friends found a job in Kasese town which is the nearest big town to the national park. So I decided to go and have my Christmas for that particul... read more
