QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK
Queen Elizabeth national park is Uganda’s most popular game reserve for Uganda safaris and certainly one of the most scenic. It stretches from the crater-dotted foothills of the Ruwenzori range in the north, along the shores of Lake Edward to the remote Ishasha river in the south, incorporating a wide variety of habitats that range from savanna and wetlands to gallery and low land forest. The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna,humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.
The park lies 5-6 hours from Kampala on a surfaced road via Mbarara,and can also be reached on a dirt road.
