Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park borders Lakes Edward and George which are connected by the Kazinga Channel, and is located in the western arm of the Great Rift Valley - commonly referred to as the Albertine Rift. The park covers an area of 764 square miles and encompasses Maramagambo forest, and Kyambura and Kigezi wildlife reserves, thereby forming one of the most diverse eco systems in Africa spanning semi-deciduous tropical forest, green meadows, savannah and swamps.
Activities in the park include game viewing, with the tree climbing lions at Ishasha as the key attraction, bird watching, launch cruise on the channel, scenic viewing and nature walks. The open Savannah dotted with Acacia, Euphorbia, hyperhenia and themeda triandra trees provides a perfect habitat for elephants, leopards, lions, Uganda kob and other antelope species, chimpanzees and big herds of grazers like buffaloes. Other animal species frequently seen in the park include the giant forest hog, water buck, topi, hyenas and the Nile crocodiles. A boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel down the shores of Lake Edward provides a unique vantage point for viewing the assorted wildlife that the park has to offer.
