Day 1: Drive Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park covers an area of 1978 square kilometers and is situated in between two big lakes, George and L. Edward as well as the 34 kilometers long Kazinga channel. As you get into the park you will be able to see the escapement of Ruwenzori mountain creator lakes, rift valley, and several animals in the park plains. The park prides itself on animals like lions, elephants, buffaloes, cob, bushbucks, waterbucks, warthogs, and leopards but it may not be easy to see it. Meals and overnight at Enganzi Lodge or Ihamba safari lodge. Stay at bush lodge tented rooms or bandas (mid-range) on full board.

You encounter animals including waterbucks, buffaloes, warthogs, a variety of birds, and many more. Over 95 species of mammals and 600 species of birds have been recorded in the park.

After a game drive, return to the lodge for breakfast followed by relaxation. After lunch, you will set off for an afternoon/ evening boat cruise along the Kazinga channel. On the Kazinga channel boat voyage, you will most likely see buffaloes close to the water, hippos, elections, dozens of pied kingfishers, and pelicans among others. Return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.
