Wild Game Safaris

3 DAYS: QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK
Day 1:
Drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park
Depart from Kampala heading southwest across the country, through Mbarara town, the home to the impressive long horn Ankole cattle. On the way see the royal drum makers, stand on the Equator, bargain at the roadside markets. Descend to Queen Elizabeth National Park, keeping an eye out for game. A short game drive along the Channel track welcomes you into this park as we proceed for check-in at Mweya Safari Lodge. The Channel track runs parallel with the Kazinga channel as you drive slowly towards the Katunguru gate. It’s particularly rewarding with warthog, bushbuck, waterbuck and elephants. Depending on the time limits, you may also like to enjoy a safari game drive in the northern sector of the park, the Baboon Cliff famous for its nice scenery, and good views of the shadows of the mountains of the moon – the Rwenzoris. Afterwards you drive back to your lodge through large expanses of savannah grasslands as you spot some wildlife en-route.
Day 2:
Safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park
Enjoy your breakfast and then drive outside the park towards Kyambura George in the eastern sector of the park in search of chimpanzees and other primates.
In the afternoon we will go for a launch trip along the Kazinga Channel. This gives you the opportunity to view wildlife up close: hippo’s huff and spray a feet away from the boat, buffalo linger in the shallows. The shores of the channel are also home to an array of birds including pink backed pelicans, pied and malachite kingfishers, saddle billed stork and many others.
Day 3:
Game drive and depart for Kampala
We set out early in the morning for a game drive in the northern part of the park on the Kasenyi Track in search of lions, elephants, solitary buffaloes. This is the best time for opportunities of viewing the cats in action owing to the vast population of Uganda Kobs. We have an excellent chance to view just about every animal here at very close range. Return to the lodge for your breakfast, before heading out to Katwe Salt works for a glimpse into traditional salt mining. This is one of the oldest salt mines in Uganda established in the 14th Century. Depart for Kampala, arriving early in the evening.
