3 Days Queen Elizabeth National Park Safari

A Quick Overview

This park is home to nearly 100 species of mammals and 606 species of birds, including large herds of hippos, large forest hogs, and the attractive Uganda. Aside from the vast wildlife of Queen Elizabeth National Park, the safari includes a guided chimp trekking experience in Kyambura as well as an unforgettable boat ride experience along the popular Kazinga Channel with a game safari for rare wildlife encounters.

Day One: From Kampala to Queen Elizabeth.
After an early breakfast, one of our guides will pick you up from your Kampala accommodation at 8:00 a.m. and drive you to Queen Elizabeth National Park. You will stop at the Equator to take photographs and at the Agip Motel in Mbarara for lunch. From there, you’ll travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you’ll be awestruck by the stunning scenery, tea plantations, open grasslands, long-horned –Ankole Cattle, woodlands, and the Rift Valley Escarpment. When you head back to your hotel in the evening, go on a game drive.

Day 2: Safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park
Breakfast will be served at your Queen Elizabeth Park lodge in the morning, followed by a game drive. On the game drive, you can see animals returning from a night hunt, such as lumbering elephants, tigers, and running warthogs with their tails lifted. Remember that Queen Elizabeth provides breathtaking views of the Rwenzori Mountains.

Then it’s time to return to your lodging for some rest and lunch. Don’t forget to charge your camera batteries because you’ll be taking a boat ride, which is a must-do for any visitor to the park. Lake Edward and Lake Gorge share the Kazinga Channel, which runs 40 kilometers between the two lakes.

You will go on a boat ride or cruise in the afternoon. The channel is home to several birds seen during the boat ride, as well as a school of hippopotamus, buffaloes, and warthogs. Nothing beats swarms of pelicans on the sea, birds flying all over the channel, and the boat taking you slowly along the shores as you take Uganda wildlife photos. To say the least, it was a satisfying afternoon game watching.

You will head to your lodging facility for dinner and a relaxing evening at your African savannah cabin.

Day 3: Drive to the airport from Queen Elizabeth.
With wonderful memories from the previous day, you will have a hearty breakfast as you prepare for a primate walk; lunch will be served at the magnificent Kingfisher Lodge before heading to Entebbe. The Igongo Cultural Village, on the other hand, is an opportunity not to be missed.

    Best time to visit Uganda

    Uganda is open all-year-long, the best wildlife viewing months in Uganda are during the Dry season from late June to October.

    The most commonly asked Ugandan questions! The solution is straightforward! You are welcome to visit Uganda at any time of the year! It’s a hot and humid atmosphere here.

    The cost of a safari, which is normally higher during peak season, maybe the difference. We offer discounts in May and April, and if you are traveling in groups, we offer a $150 discount on a Uganda safari gorilla permit.

    June to October –Dry Season. Wildlife is easier to spot.

    November to May –Wet Season

    The scenery is beautiful and green Rates drop because it’s the low season.
