Queen Elizabeth National Park is the most popular and easily accessible game reserve in Uganda. Situated on the floor of Albertine rift overlooking the mysterious Mountains of the moon (The Rwenzoris) in South-western Uganda, the park covers 2000 square KM and includes a remarkable variety of echo systems from semi-deciduous Tropical to green meadows, savannah, crater lakes and swamps. A total of 95 mammal species have been recorded here, the highest for any Ugandan National Park. It is home to the most famous tree-climbing lions along the Ishasha Sector, the Ugandan Kob, and other Antelopes species, as well as Elephants, Bufallos, Hippos, Buboons, and elusive primates in the scenic Kyambura gorge. A total of 547 confirmed bird species have also been recorded in Queen Elizabeth. This is one of the highest totals in the World and is truly remarkable for such a relatively small reserves. In addition to all these fascinating game viewing and birding; a relaxing boat trip along the Kazinga Channel is irresistible.
