Queen Elizabeth National Park, named after her royal highness, the Queen of England is a uniquely gifted national park in Uganda that will literally wow you with lots of surprises right down from the rare Tree-climbing Lions to the magnificent scenery of grassy hills and sparkling crater lakes, with Mount Rwenzori in the distance north of Ishasha.
DAY 1: TRAVEL TO QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK
Your driver guide will pick you up at exactly 7am and you will begin your journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park, which is approximately 6 hours from Kampala. Drive westwards via Masaka – Mbarara Highway. First stop will be at the Uganda Equator, where you will take plenty of pictures, grab a snack and use the toilet if you have to.
Lunch stop will be at Agip motel in Mbarara where you will rejuvenate your body with a delicious meal then continue the drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the landscapes as you pass through Kabale, also the long horned Ankole cattle, vast tea plantations in Ishaka, savanna vegetation and so much more. Upon arrival to Queen Elizabeth National Park, you will check into the accommodation, relax, and take a nice cold/hot shower to wash away the exhaustion from the long haul journey, have dinner and rest for the next day’s activities.
DAY 2: EARLY GAME DRIVE, AFTERNOON BOAT SAFARI ON THE KAZINGA CHANNEL
Wake up at 6:00, have some African tea or coffee. Morning game drive will start out at exactly 6:30am, an ideal time to see most of the animals who are up early for their breakfast. The carnivores are usually hunting around this time and the others on guard, extremely alert not to be the prey! If you are lucky, you will definitely be part of this exciting action, so, wake up and pray for some luck too!
The game drive will be along Kasenyi and Queens mile trucks. Expect to encounter elephants, buffaloes, waterbucks, warthogs, lions, hyenas, leopards, giant forest hogs, Uganda kobs and lots of savannah birds.
After a phenomenal 2-3 hours game drive, return to your accommodation facility and have breakfast, relax by the swimming pool until lunch. After lunch, you will have a boat cruise at 2:00pm along the famous Kazinga Channel where you will see lots of hippos and spectacular birds.
DAY 3: ANOTHER MORNING GAME DRIVE, TRAVEL BACK TO KAMPALA
Wake up at 5:30 to a steamy cup of tea or coffee and at 6:00am have yet another morning game drive.
Return to the lodge after the game drive, have a heavy breakfast, shower, get your things packed and be ready to leave the park to head to Kampala.
Lunch stop to be made at Agip motel and then continue to drive back to Kampala where you will be dropped at your hotel.
