3 Days Queen Elizabeth Game Park and Kibale forest

Queen Elizabeth Game Park is 350 km to the South West of Kampala. It is also a very popular tourist destination due to the abundant wild life thriving in its diverse ecosystems; the vast savannah grasslands and wood lands; the humid forests and sparkling lakes. It is famous for the rare tree climbing lions. Lions can be spotted right at the entrance of the park. Animals found here include antelopes; elephants; buffaloes; hippopotamus; leopards; and the primates. Giraffes are the only animals that are not found in this game park.

Other attractions at Queen Elizabeth include the Kazinga channel boat cruise trip. During the boat ride, vast numbers of birds can be seen. Chimp tracking takes place in the Kyambura gorge. At the Northern tip of the park is another chance to stand at the equator.
