3 DAYS QUEEN ELIZABETH NP TRIP

Description

Enjoy this Uganda wildlife safari in Queen Elizabeth national park which offers a beautiful African safari experience.

Itinerary

After breakfast, we shall start our journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park. We shall make one quick stop for lunch before we proceed to Kasese. Once we are in the park, we shall begin to see some animals on the lookout. We shall check at the hotel, and depending on the time of arrival, we shall squeeze in a game drive. ACCOMMODATION: Bush Lodge

You will have breakfast at 6 am, and by 6:30, we shall be heading inside the park before the sun comes out. The animals like to roam around before it gets hot. We shall drive around the park for 3 hours trying to look for s ome cats (lions and leopards), elephants, antelopes, warthogs and so on. As you know, this is nature; sometimes, the big cats hide, but let’s keep our hopes up. I have always seen the lions in this park.
In the afternoon, we shall catch a boat to the Kazinga channel. This channel has different bird species,
reptiles like crocodiles, Nile monitor lizards, hippos, elephants, etc.
After this activity, which takes about 2-3 hours, we shall head back to the hotel for dinner.
Dinner at the same hotel above
