Day 1: Kampala – Drive To Queen Elizabeth National Park

Depart from Kampala heading southwest across the country, through Mbarara town, the home to the impressive long horn Ankole cattle. On the way see the royal drum makers, stand on the Equator, bargain at the roadside markets.

Descend to Queen Elizabeth National Park, keeping an eye out for 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, you may 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.

Afterwards you drive back to your lodge through large expanses of savannah grasslands as you spot some wildlife en route.

Day 2: Queen Elizabeth National Park – Drive To Kampala

0630 Hours: We 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. We have an excellent chance to view just about every animal here at very close range.

0900 Hours: Return to the lodge for your breakfast, then later out for a launch trip along the Kazinga Channel. This gives you the opportunity to view wildlife up close: hippo’s huff and spray 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, with lunch en-route. We arrive later in the evening.
