National Park Queen Elizabeth 

Just about five hours driving from Masaka lies National Park Queen Elizabeth. This park is undoubtedly the most popular park in Uganda. The location of the park is exactly on the equator, making it a very favorable climate.

General information

The Katwe explosion craters mark the highest point in the park. These craters are called explosion craters because the eruptions were so explosive that they spread lava and stones to the distant surroundings.

  • Size: 1,978 km2
  • Altitude: 910 m - 1,350 m above sea level
  • More than 95 wintering species and 600 bird species

There are different ecosystems in the park; from savanna to forest to marsh. This is an ideal place for the larger wild, as many as 10 species of primates (including chimpanzees) and more than 600 species of birds. In addition to hippos and various types of antelope, you can also see elephants and giraffes with some luck. There are several predators including tree-climbing lions, leopards, jackals and hyenas. Do you want to see everything in this park? Then block three or four days on your callendar because there is just so much to do. A beautiful way to admire the natural beauty is to make a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. You can also track chimpanzees, go birdwatching or look for the 'bat cave' that can be found in the Maramagambo forest. And of course you can explore the park with a guide and a four-wheel drive!
