Day 1: Kampala – Drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park
Start our 2 Day best of Queen Elizabeth park by departing from Kampala heading southwest across the country, through Mbarara town, the home to the impressive long horn Ankole cattle. On the way you will visit the the royal drum makers, the Equator take photographs, make simple shopping, and pull off 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 continue to check-in at the lodge. The Channel track runs parallel with the Kazinga channel as you drive slowly towards the Katunguru gate. It’s particularly rewarding with warthog, bush buck, water buck 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.
