This 2 day Queen Elizabeth Safari – a Uganda wildlife safari takes you to Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda’s second largest national park, with plenty of wildlife, birds and primates. This park also has spectacular scenery including Crater Lakes and rolling Savannah plains overlooking the snow capped Rwenzori Mountain ranges. You will enjoy game drives and a boat cruise on the Kazinga channel.
You will depart Kampala in the morning after breakfast and travel westwards through Uganda’s beautiful green countryside to the Queen Elizabeth National park. The journey will take 6-7 hours with stopovers at areas of tourist attraction such as the Equator for an opportunity to stand in two hemispheres at the same time. You will continue through the savannah grasslands with lots of banana plantations and several herds of local long horned Ankole cattle endemic to this part of the country.
You will get to Queen Elizabeth National Park in the afternoon in time for a launch cruise along the amazing Kazinga channel to see at close range the big water animals like Hippos, Buffalos, Crocodiles and elephants bathing at the banks of the channel. There is also a variety of bird species on the water banks especially the famous Shoebill, pelican and Jacana. You will thereafter retire for dinner and overnight at the Engiri Game Lodge.
