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.

Day 1: Depart from your residence northwest through the famous Luwero Triangle with a stop over at Masindi Town for lunch after which proceed to Murchison Falls National Park. On arriving proceed to the dramatic falls, which are captivating where you can see the Nile’s beauty perfected! While at the Murchison Falls, enjoy the sunset as you return to the lodge. Dinner and overnight at Paraa safari lodge or Nile safari Camp.

Day 2: Prepare very early in the morning and after breakfast to cross the Victoria Nile to the Northern bank. The Nile itself hosts one of Africa’s densest hippo and crocodile populations. In the lush borassus grassland to the north of the Nile, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and a variety of antelope are regularly encountered on game drives, while lions are seen with increasing frequency.

After enjoying a packed lunch go for a boat trip to the lake Albert delta that provides the best chance in Africa of sighting shoe bills. This is also a zone of dazzling variety of water birds including bird species like goliath herons, Egyptian gooses, pelican bee-eaters, kingfishers, horn bills, and cormorants. Overnight at Paraa safari lodge or Nile Safari Camp.

Day 3: Drive through Hoima to Fort Portal and get a glimpse of the way of living of the African setting and agriculture. You will reach Fort Portal late in the afternoon. Dinner and overnight at Ndali lodge or Kabali Tented Camp.

Day 4: Very early in the morning after your breakfast go for primate viewing with Chimpanzee trekking being the most exciting. Other primates include; red tailed and gray cheeked Mangabey, red colubus monkeys, and phoetes. More will be explained on the fauna and flora as you trek for the primates to ensure that the walk is both informative and enjoyable. In addition to primate viewing, expect to watch the bird life its natural habitat. Dinner and overnight at Ndali lodge or Kabali Tented camp.

Day 5: Continue to Queen Elizabeth National Park and view the majestic Rwenzori mountain range along. Viewing almost 100 mammal species makes this superb safari territory, with elephant, a profusion of hippos, the elusive giant hog and the handsome Uganda kob all regularly sighted around the tourist village on the Mweya Peninsula an exciting experience in a game drive.

Also available is chimp tracking. After lunch enjoy a launch trip on the Kazinga channel into the lake Edward which offers great game viewing. This is an excellent view for taking photographs and bird watching (over 606 bird species). Dinner and overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge or the Jacana Safari Lodge.

Day 6: Proceed for two drives today. Queen Elizabeth National Park’s diverse Eco system of savanna to rain forest, from dense papyrus swamps and brooding crater lakes to the vastness of lake Edward, it is little wonder that the park boasts one of highest biodiversity ratings of any game park or reserve in the world.

Game drives in this park, with the massive Rwenzoris as a backdrop, provides excellent opportunities to see lion, leopard, giant forest hog, Cape buffalo, elephant, defassa water buck, Uganda kob, topi and bush buck. These two game drives and the boat trip [taken prior] are memorable methods of discovering a vast array of Ugandan wildlife.
