Being the most visited park in Uganda, you definitely do not want to leave out Queen Elizabeth National park in your destinations to tour. Imagine visiting a place where you find sparkling lakes, humid forests, sprawling savannah and fertile wetlands all in one place. And as if that isn’t enough, the park also has dozens of enormous craters which shape into rolling green hills plus the magnificent view of the Kazinga channel.
Well, here are the top activities you can do on safari in Queen Elizabeth national park;
- Game Drives
While you are driven around the park by a driver guide you will encounter animals like lions, elephants, buffaloes and the best time to come across these species is in the early morning hours. Other animals you will see are hyenas, warthogs, kobs, waterbucks, oribi, Topi & giant forest hog.
- Boat cruise
This normally takes place on the kazinga channel, a link between Lake Edward & George. While having this cruise you get to hear the sounds and see the sights of the rich aquatic life, Hippopotamuses dipping in the water, the fierce crocodiles resting by the banks. Youcan’t miss the kingfishers while they try to get a meal.
