The Camp

Ishasha Wilderness Camp offers quality accommodation in the unspoilt, remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, famous for its tree climbing lions. It’s an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness. The camp is next to the Ntungwe River, nestled under shady trees. Each of the ten spacious canvas rooms is comfortably furnished and boasts a large verandah. The en suite bathroom and dressing area have running water for hand-basins and hot ‘bush’ showers, plus a flushing ‘eco-friendly’ toilet. A central lounge and dining area, under a cool thatched roof, provides a comfortable environment for meals and to relax in during the heat of the day. Under the trees, next to the river, we often serve meals ‘al fresco’ and there is an evening ‘fireplace’ for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experience.
As the camp is within the National Park, we have designed it to be as low impact as possible with low usage of water, power and other resources. Solar power is used for lighting with power points limited to a central area allocated for recharging cameras and videos.
Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, and our bar has a selection of local and imported beverages. Early morning wake up calls to your tent with tea/coffee allows you to savour the early morning sounds of the ‘bush’ awakening.
We recommend a stay of between two to four nights in the camp as there is a lot to see in the area. One of the highlights is the possible viewing of the lions of this area, often found resting in the branches of large fig trees.
