3 Days Queen Elizabeth National Park 

 

Day 1:

Queen Elizabeth National Park, viewing Rwenzoris, lots of craters lakes and wild animals

 

Depart from Kampala heading southwest across the country, through Mbarara         town, the home to the impressive long horn Ankole cattle. On the way see the      royal drum makers, stand on the Equator, bargain at the roadside markets.       Descend to Queen Elizabeth National Park, keeping an eye out for game. A short game drive along the Channel track welcomes you into this park as we proceed for check-in at your lodge. The Channel track runs parallel with the Kazinga channel as you drive slowly towards the Katunguru gate. It’s particularly  rewarding with warthog, bushbuck, waterbuck and elephants. Depending on the time limits, you may also like to enjoy a safari game drive in the northern sector  of the park, the Baboon Cliff famous for its nice scenery, and good views of the shadows of the mountains of the moon – the Rwenzoris. Afterwards you drive back to your lodge through large expanses of savannah grasslands as you spot some wildlife enroute.

Day 2:

Safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Game drive to see lions, leopard, elephant, buffallo, etc

 

We set out early in the morning for a game drive in the northern part of the park      on the Kasenyi Track in search of lions, elephants, solitary buffaloes. This is the      best time for opportunities of viewing the cats in action owing to the vast        population of Uganda Kobs. We have an excellent chance to view just about       every animal here at very close range. Return to the lodge for your breakfast,    before heading out for a launch trip along the Kazinga Channel. This gives you      the opportunity to view wildlife up close: hippo’s huff and spray at a mere feet  away from the boat, buffalo linger in the shallows. The shores of the channel are  also home to an array of birds including pink backed pelicans, pied and malachite kingfishers, saddle billed stork and many others.
