Safari Accommodation in Queen Elizabeth National Park
Accommodation choices, safari lodges & camps in queen elizabeth np., safari lodges & camps around queen elizabeth national park.
Queen Elizabeth is Uganda’s most famous savannah game park, making a good investment for property developers to invest in building standard and luxury camps and lodges around the National Park.
The Queen Elizabeth National Park is in the southwest at the end of the Rwenzori foothills bisected by Kazinga, a Channel that joins Lake Edward to Lake George. It includes much of the game-rich plains, scrubland, and forest surrounding Lakes Edward and George. This attractive game reserve joins the Kibale Forest Corridor Game Reserve in the north, an area flourishing with the most studied cousin primates, the chimpanzee bands.
This top savannah wildlife attraction contains large herds of elephants and buffalo, and the waters of Lakes Edward, George, and the Kazinga Channel have a massive hippopotamus population. There are also large numbers of Uganda kob, topi, and water-buck, especially on the open grassy hanks of the Ishasha river, near the southern end of the park. Other animal species that pull in tourist crowds include the chimpanzee in the underground Kyambura Gorge, forest hog, warthog, bushbuck, reedbuck, lion, and leopard. And lions are surprisingly easy to spot on lazy African safari game drives.
Accommodation in Queen Elizabeth National Park is an assortment of various styles and budgets, ranging from tucked-away tented camps to hotel-style family lodges. If you’re considering an African safari in Uganda’s most accessible big game safari destination, our list of carefully selected Queen Elizabeth National Park safari camps and lodges is sure to inspire you and make planning your Uganda safari so much fun. Nkuringo Safaris experts believe leisure travel excitement and fun start at the planning phase. So let’s have some fun, shall we!
[show_more more=”Show more” less=”Show less”]
Queen Elizabeth is a top wildlife viewing attraction in Uganda; you would need at least two nights in the park to fully exhaust the African bush wilderness experience. Boat trips on the Kazinga channel available on either a scheduled boat launch or private boat safari lazily floating on the channel’s shores where you can watch a good spectacle of waterhole drama. On strategic shore locations on the channel are a great choice of exclusive safari lodges and camps.
The Ishasha sector in the southern part of Queen Elizabeth, NP, is famous for its Tree-climbing lions. It’s a great option to watch the lounging savannah cats as you connect to the gorilla sanctuaries in the south.
Chimp trekking is available in the low-key Kyambura Gorge forest reserve. Although chimpanzee sighting may not be highly probable, the gorge reserve offers a relaxing nature walk. Other animals you’ll quickly see in the reverine forest include red-tailed monkeys, black-and-white colobus, baboons, and vervet monkeys are seen.
The park is also known for its variety of avian species, including various falcons, the blue-headed bee-eater, the African finfoot, and 597 bird species recorded. However, Chimpanzee Tracking is what draws visitors to the gorge.
Mweya peninsula area is the most common choice for accommodation in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Still, camps and lodges can get very busy in high season, making room reservations expensive and scarce.
The main highway on the edge of the park separates the communities of people who live along the boundaries. The road connects the park to the capital city in the east and Kibale National park in the north. Along this highway is where you most probably will find decent safari lodges and camps.
How to get to Queen Elizabeth National Park
Queen Elizabeth National Park is one of the most accessible reserves in Uganda, both by road and by air. Public transportation is simple to navigate, although travelers prefer private road trips because it connects well with far-flung attractions like Kibale Forest , Lake Mburo, and Bwindi Impenetrable National Parks.
Kibale is about 388 km (241 mi) southwest of Kampala’s capital city, 103 kilometers (67 mi) south of Kibale Forest, and about 135 kilometers (84 mi) of the gorilla rainforest Bwindi Impenetrable National Park .
The nearest airports are light aircraft airstrips, i,e., Kasese Airport 48 km (30 mi) north of the park. Kasese airstrip has direct scheduled flights from Kihihi airport near Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. You can combine the savannah wilderness with gorilla trekking adventure .
