Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP), named after none other than Her Majesty the Queen of England, is located in south western Uganda on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo along the Ishasha River. Most famously known as one of Africa’s only homes to tree-climbing lions, QENP is a highlight of any Uganda safari. In addition to hosting prides of lions in the boughs of huge sycamore fig trees, there are forest primates including chimpanzees in Kyambura Gorge, plus over 600 species of birds, the unique Uganda kob, amazing elephants, and breath-taking scenery.

Residing in QENP’s scenically diverse landscape are an estimated 95 mammal species, to accompany the impressive 612 bird species. These numbers rival any wildlife reserve in Africa, including neighbouring Virunga National Park, which has a reputation for being one of the last remaining true wilderness areas in the world. Hippos fill the rivers, bringing that iconic sound to guests camping under the trees in the Ishasha region of the park, while black and white colobus monkeys swing through the trees among jewel-toned turacos. This superb wildlife area has it all and the game viewing is abundant, adding some classic African safari style to Uganda’s characteristic primate safari offering.

Accommodation at Queen Elizabeth National Park

Kyambura Gorge Lodge

Kyambura Gorge Lodge

Kyambura Gorge Lodge is an eclectic, contemporary safari lodge that has been converted from an old coffee store to create a breathtakingly beautiful space. The lodge is located on the edge of Queen Elizabeth National Park with sweeping views of the rolling savanna, the distant mountains of the moon, and the sunken Kyambura Gorge. The stylish bandas also have a contemporary theme with the accent on local artefacts re-imagined in a new context. Each banda offers a unique view either across the savanna or the gorge.
