Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park – set in Uganda’s South-East region – is the country’s most popular reserve as it has a variety of terrain. Its volcanic craters, open savannah plains, forest, rivers and Lakeland provide diverse habitats which attract a plethora of animals.

It also boasts an impressive 606 recorded species of bird – more than any other park in Africa.



Of all Uganda’s National Parks, this area has the greatest number of mammal species. The savannah gives a taste of classic Africa game viewing – with various antelope, lion and spotted hyena as well as warthog and mongoose.

A highlight is the Kazinga channel where visitors can view game by boat, viewing hippos and crocodiles as well as elephant, buffalo and Big Cats when they come to drink at the water’s edge.

The forested areas and Ishasha are home to chimpanzees and various species of monkey including black and white colobus, baboons, red-tailed monkeys and vervet monkeys. Hyena and leopard are evident as are large prides of lion – including the famous tree-climbing lions.
