Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s most visited national park. Its diverse ecosystems, including sparkling lakes, fertile wetlands, savanna, shady and humid forests make it an ideal habitat for over 600 species of birds and over 95 mammal species such as a huge range of primate species like chimpanzees, lions, and hippos.

The park is situated on the sides of Mountain Rwenzori, and is also well known for its volcanic activity, with enormous crater lakes. Salt is extracted out of one of these crater lakes, Lake Katwe.
