About Ishasha and Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National park spreads over an area of 1978 km2 in the western arm of the Great East Rift Valley. It is a home to a variety of wildlife including elephant, lion, hippo, leopard, buffalo, and Uganda kob, baboon, and birds, all typical of riverine and savannah habitats. In the southern part of the park is the Ishasha sector, where we commonly see tree-climbing lions and we find the Maramagambo, one of the largest surviving natural forests in Uganda. Its location, midway between the Mweya area of QENP and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, makes it a natural place to spend a few nights on a long itinerary.
