From open savannahs to verdant rainforest, and from dense papyrus swamps and crater lakes to the vastness of Lake Edward, it is little wonder Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts one of the highest biodiversity rates of any game park.
Boat launch trips on the Kazinga Channel offer great game viewing, as do game drives around Mweya and the Northern Circuit. Further southwest, the remote Ishasha plains are famous for their tree-climbing lions, the Kyambura Gorge harbors habituated chimps, the Maramamgambo Forest is home to many forest monkeys, and flamingos abound in the dozens of crater lakes. Visit the Park strategically placed between the Rwenzori Mountains in the north and Bwindi National Park to the southwest. There are many nice places to stay in QENP ranging from basic camp sites to the upmarket Mweya Safari Lodge.
