3-Day Queen Elizabeth Wildlife Trip

3-Day Queen Elizabeth Wildlife Trip takes you to  Queen Elizabeth National Park. This park offers a game drive and a boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel, where visitors can spot a wide array of wildlife and bird species. The diverse landscape for instance crater lakes and the Rwenzori Mountains, adds to the allure of this park.

The Ishasha Sector. Specifically renowned for its population of tree-climbing lions, which is a rare behavior observed in only a few places in the world. These lions are known to rest and perch in the branches of fig trees, providing a remarkable sight for visitors.  However, it is believed that they climb the trees to escape from the heat on the ground and to get a better vantage point for spotting prey. Apart from the unique tree-climbing lions, the Ishasha Sector is also home to other wildlife, including elephants, buffalos, antelopes, and various bird species, making it an excellent spot for wildlife viewing and photography
