2 Days Queen Elizabeth Safaris
The 2 Days Queen Elizabeth Safaris takes to explore Kazinga channel and other wildlife in the park The National Park is located in southwestern Uganda. It occupies an area of 764 square miles in a region of rolling plains east of Lake Edward & foothills south of the Rwenzori Mountains.
The park is known for its wildlife; among the species are hippopotamuses, elephants, leopards, lions, and chimpanzees. It is now home to 95 species of mammals and over 500 species of birds.
Day 1: Drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park
Depart from Kampala heading southwest across the country, through Mbarara town, the home to the impressive long-horned Ankole cattle. On the way see the royal drum makers, stand on the Equator, a bargain at the roadside markets.
Descend to Queen Elizabeth National Park, keeping an eye out for a 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. Afterward, you drive back to your lodge through large expanses of savannah grasslands as you spot some wildlife en route.
Day 2: Safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Game drive
We Leopards have been sighted in Queen Elizabeth National Park on tour 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: hippos huff and sprays at 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. After the boat ride, we embark on our return journey to Kampala, arriving early in the evening.
