3 Days Queen Elizabeth Wildlife safari and Experiential Lion Tracking Experience

OVERVIEW

This 3 Days Queen Elizabeth Wildlife safari and Experiential Lion Tracking Experience will take you to the gifted Savannah national park in Western Uganda – Queen Elizabeth National Park for a wonderful adventure. Queen Elizabeth National Park is one of the 10 national parks in Uganda and is famous for wildlife viewing, experiential game drives, boat cruise, nature walks and many other park activities.

The park is also known to host 4 of the 5 members of the big game animals and these include the Lions, Leopards, Buffaloes and Elephants. It has the Kazinga channel where the boat cruise takes place and you can’t miss out on the various bird species and big mammals such as elephants, buffaloes, hippos and Nile crocodiles feeding and relaxing in the water. The park receives the highest number of tourists among all parks in the country and one of the reasons is that the park has a special sector called Ishasha. This is the only place in Uganda where you can find the famous tree-climbing lions.
