Queen Elizabeth National Park

QE National Park is home to 95 mammal species and around 612 species of birds including African skimmer, Chapins flycatcher, Pink-backed pelicans, Papyrus canary, Shoebill stork, martial eagle, black-rumped buttonquail as well as the great flamingos living within five levels of vegetation: bushy grassland, acacia woodland, the lakeshore/swamp and forest grassland.

Mweya Peninsula is where the majority of visitors are based. The Kazinga Channel is about 40m long adjoining Lake Gorge to Lake Edward and offers the perfect view of the parks’ major wildlife from safari boats which cruise the water.The shores of the lake attract a large concentration of mammals year around.

QE National Park, like Lake Manyara in Tanzania is known for its tree climbing lions or the Ishasha Lions. Ishasha covers an area of around 100km south of Mweya. This southern portion of the park feels far wilder .The most accessible spot for lions is in the eastern part of Kasenyi plains and the Kasese road.
