Discover Uganda's abundant biodiversity during this 2-day adventure to Queen Elizabeth National Game Park, which is known for its tree-climbing lions. For the most immersive safari experience, this tour takes you to some of the best spots within this UNESCO World Heritage Site. You won't have to worry about anything throughout your trip because all meals, lodging, activities, and entrance are included, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy the scenery.

Itinerary

Day 1:

Before beginning the long journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park, our guide will pick you up very early (6 a.m.) from either Entebbe or Kampala. This drive takes 5 to 6 hours and passes through breathtaking terrain with stunning scenery and sights. You'll make a photo stop at the equator crossing in Kayabwe (near Masaka) for a chance to join the elite group of people who have stood in both hemispheres at the same time. The equator is the planet's major latitude, dividing it into two halves: the southern and northern hemispheres. Keep an eye out for the spectacular panorama of limitless savannah, enormous farms of long-horned ankole cattle, and local people going about their everyday lives as you continue your drive into western Uganda. Depending on how the journey goes, lunch will be at Mbarara or another area. You'll arrive in the park in the early afternoon. If time allows, check into your accommodation or head directly to the Kazinga Channel for an afternoon boat tour. The Kazinga waterway is home to Africa's biggest group of hippos. There are numerous aquatic, resident, and migratory birds, making it a birder's delight. Watch buffaloes, crocodiles, elephants, and hippos bathe in the water channel.


Pelicans, the Knob-billed Duck, African Jacana, yellow wagtail, common squacco Herons, flamingos, kingfishers, saddle-billed storks, and the famed Shoebill Stork are among the species to look out for. Primates such as red-tailed monkeys, white and black colobus monkeys, olive baboons, and vervet monkeys can also be seen. For budget travelers, dinner and overnight will be at Simba Safari Camp, Bush Lodge, or Kazinga Channel View Lodge. Enganzi Lodge, Buffalo Safari Resort, or Ihamba Safari Lodge will accommodate moderate or mid-range travelers. Jacana Lodge, Katara Lodge, or Mweya Safari Lodge are the choices for the luxury travelers.

Day 2:

Early in the morning, shower and eat breakfast while waiting for the Guide/Driver to pick you up and take you on a morning game drive across the Mweya peninsula or the Kasenyi plains. On a Uganda safari, the Mweya peninsula is one of the best spots to go for a wildlife drive. Because the peninsula is elevated, you can see the huge savannah, the animals, Lake Katwe, Lake Edward, and Lake George. Hyenas, leopards, buffaloes, mongooses, elephants, the Uganda Kob, lions, warthogs, waterbucks, and other varieties of antelopes are among the animals to be seen.

Keep an eye out for African skimmer, black-rumped buttonquails, black bee eaters, Chapins flycatchers, fish eagles, martial eagles, verreaux's eagle owls, white-tailed larks, and Pink-backed pelicans while on the game drive. Following the activities, you will return to your accommodation for lunch before continuing your journey back to Kampala or Entebbe. If you didn't get any at the park offices, you'll stop by the Igongo Cultural Centre for souvenirs. The time of arrival in Kampala is in the evening. If you plan to leave Uganda on this day, book a flight that departs at 9:00 p.m.
