Lions and elephants; buffaloes and hippos; hyenas and stunning birdlife – Queen Elizabeth National Park is a treasure trove of wildlife. There are more than 90 different species of mammal here and over 600 types of bird. You might even see the reclusive leopard.

Uganda’s most popular and accessible savannah reserve, Queen Elizabeth National Park is in a beautiful location, nestling in the south-west of the country. Covering almost 2,000 square kilometres, it is bounded to the west by Lake Edward on the Congolese border, in the north by the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains and by Lake George in the east.

It has a range of ecosystems – from forests to savannah and lakes. The Kabubbu Resort Centre can take you there and arrange meals, accommodation, park permits and guides to ensure you get the most from your visit. And you can combine it with our other tours to make your own unique adventure.

Options include a guided tour in a safari truck with plenty of time to stop, stare and photograph. You can also take a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel which links Lake Edward and Lake George where hippos and a myriad of exotic birds gather. You can also track chimpanzees in the Kyambura Gorge and explore the unique crater lakes nearby.
