3 Days Queen Elizabeth National Park safari

Day 1, Travel by road

Your day starts early with breakfast at your Hotel, then a guide/driver will meet up with you at your hotel where he will provide some briefing and you set off at 7:30 am for the tour. The drive is occasionally scenic with beautiful yet different countryside settings. Depending on where you hail from, everything might appear disorganized since it is a matter of perspective. A lunch break is taken in Mbarara town for about 1hour or so.

After our lunch get back on the road through small farms of banana plantations, cattle and then emerge to tea plantations at Igara in Ishaka, then through Kalinzu Forest Reserve and finally to a great viewpoint of Queen Elizabeth National Park and the Kyambura Gorge(escarpment.) We check you in to your lodge and prepare for a night game drive. If we are lucky then we might spot some hunting action.
