Queen Elizabeth National Park is arguably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination. The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include wide-ranging savanna, shady, humid forests and sparkling lakes, make it the ideal habitat for definitive big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.

Set against the backdrop of the jagged Rwenzori Mountains – Uganda’s talest mountain, the park’s magnificent views include dozens of enormous craters carved dramatically into rolling green hills, panoramic views of the Kazinga channel with its banks lined with hippos, buffalo and elephants and the endless Ishasha plains, whose fig trees hide lions ready to dive on herds of unsuspecting Uganda kob.

The park also has a fascinating cultural history. There are many opportunities for visitors to meet the local communities and enjoy storytelling, dance, music and more. Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park is truly a Medley of Wonders! The activities include bird watching, chimpanzee tracking, game drives, cave tour, hiking and nature walks, launch trip, cultural visits and nature trails, tree climbing lions viewing and wildlife research tour.

Murchison Falls National Park lies at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, wherethe bulky Bunyoro escarpment merges into the vast plains of Acholi land. Hosting 76 species of mammals and 451 birds, Murchison Park is Uganda's largest and oldest conservation area (first gazetted as a game reserve in 1926).

The park is split by the River Nile, which bursts through a narrow cleft of relic rift valley walls, creating the vivid Murchison Falls; the most powerful fall in the world! . The mighty waterfall drains the last of the river's energy, transforming it into a broad, equable stream that flows quietly across the rift valley floor into Lake Albert. This stretch of river provides one of Uganda's most remarkable wildlife spectacles. Regular visitors to the riverbanks include elephants, giraffes and buffaloes; while hippos, Nile crocodiles and aquatic birds are permanent residents.

Notable visitors to the park include Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway and several British royals.

The activities in this park include; game drives, hiking and nature walks, launch trips, sport fishing and cultural encounters.

The park also gives you a life time opportunity to sight over 300 bird species and the 180 kilometre-long migration wildlife corridor. It is a habitat of mammals like the illusive forest elephants, buffalos, giant forest hogs and a half dozen antelope species (of course armed park rangers make the experience safe to enjoy).

The park lies close to the tranquil Ndali-Kasenda crater area and within half a day’s drive of the Queen Elizabeth, Rwenzori Mountains and Semuliki National Parks and the Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve. Activities include, chimpanzee tracking, chimpanzee habituation experience, nature walks and hikes, bird watching and night nature walks, cultural heritage and nature trail and children’s activities (above 12 years).
