Day 1: Welcome to Uganda – the Pearl of Africa

Time allowing you'll go on a tour of Entebbe and browse local markets, shop locally, or check out some of this chick colonial town's popular eateries and pubs as you mingle with the locals – Africa's friendliest people.

Day 2: Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park
After breakfast in the morning, you'll embark on an eight-hour journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park, which plays host to 95 species of mammals, including 5,000 hippos, 3,000 elephants, more than 10,000 cape buffaloes. And if you are a fan of birding, this is it! Up to 619 bird species have been recorded here – the most significant number of bird species you can find in a single protected area in the whole of eastern Africa. The drive to western Uganda will fascinate you as you as you soak in views of lush green vegetation and beautiful hills farmed in terraces. You will stop at one of the towns on this route for lunch before continuing through the verdant countryside to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Upon arrival, you will go for a late afternoon boat ride along the Kazinga Channel, which connects Lake Edward with Lake George. The boat safari will offer you the most epic game viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park – sightings of thousands of hippos, buffalo, elephant as well as multitudes of fish-eating birds. After the boat ride you'll check into your hotel in the Ishasha area of the park for dinner and overnight ahead of tomorrow's game drive. Journey time: 8 hours Accommodation options: Mweya Safari Lodge

Today's lunch will be served at Ishasha Wilderness Camp, on your way out of the park. After lunch, you will be driven back to Laico Lake Victoria Hotel in Entebbe ahead of your departure flight tomorrow. Journey time: 8 hours Accommodation options: Laico Lake Victoria Hotel

TOUR LOCATION

The park is Uganda's tourism holy grail, playing host to 95 species of mammals, including 5,000 hippos, 3,000 elephants, more than 10,000 cape buffaloes and up to 619 bird species.

History of QENP

Size: 1,978km². Queen Elizabeth spans the equator line; monuments on either side of the road mark the exact spot where it crosses latitude 00. The park was founded in 1952 as Kazinga National Park, and renamed two years later to commemorate a visit by Queen Elizabeth II. The park is home to over 95 mammal species and over 600 bird species. The Katwe explosion craters mark the park's highest point at 1,350m above sea level, while the lowest point is at 910m, at Lake Edward.
Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination. The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna, shady, humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds. Set against the backdrop of the jagged Rwenzori Mountains, the park’s magnificent vistas include dozens of enormous craters carved dramatically into rolling green hills, panoramic views of the Kazinga Channel with its banks lined with hippos, buffalo and elephants, and the endless Ishasha plains, whose fig trees hide lions ready to pounce on herds of unsuspecting Uganda kob. As well as its outstanding wildlife attractions, Queen Elizabeth National Park has a fascinating cultural history. There are many opportunities for visitors to meet the local communities and enjoy storytelling, dance, music and more. The gazetting of the park has ensured the conservation of its ecosystems, which in turn benefits the surrounding communities. Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park is truly a Medley of Wonders!
