Queen Elizabeth national park
Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s most popular and diverse conservation area. It has varied habitats which support a wealth of wildlife with more mammal species (95) than any other Ugandan park and over 600 bird species – a phenomenal number for such a small area.
Expect to see safari favourites such as elephants, buffaloes and hippos while the chances of finding lions on the plains of Kasenyi and Ishasha are good for – notably, Ishasha is famous for the climbing lions.
The park was initially named Kazinga National Park in 1952, but was renamed two years later to commemorate a visit by Queen Elizabeth II.
