Queen Elizabeth National Park
Set against the backdrop of the Rwenzori Mountains lies the fabled Queen Elizabeth National Park, a stunning landscape of spectacular crater lakes, rolling green hills, sprawling savanna and fertile wetlands where a rewarding journey allows mesmerizing experiences marveling at incredible wildlife and the magical sights of the Kazinga Channel. Few destinations can boast to combine big game viewing with some of the most surreal geology that Queen Elizabeth National Park can offer.
Why Queen Elizabeth National Park?
If the landscapes and geology of Queen Elizabeth National Park aren't spectacular enough, the wildlife that thrives in the park certainly ups the wow quotient several notches further. Lying on the Albertine Rift Valley, the vegetation varies from forests and swamplands, to the open savannah where antelopes roam. To the north, the Kazinga Channel is home to some of the largest pods of hippos and bask of crocodiles, buffaloes and many species of aquatic birds. In the south near the Ishasha River are filled with shrubs and savanna that are conducive for many land mammals such as elephants, waterbucks, warthogs, leopards, lions, hyenas and more. In the sunken forests of the Kyambura Gorge, a chimpanzee tracking expedition beckons to enjoy close encounters with human's closest relative.
