We will start the day with an early morning game drive while many animals are still on the move during the cool part of the day.

Hippos, buffalo, crocodiles and many species of birds can be spotted during the afternoon boat trip on the Kazinga Channel.

Bush Lodge: Half Board 

A leisurely drive through Queen Elizabeth National Park brings us to Ishasha, one of the few regions in Africa where lions can be spotted climbing trees and lounging on branches. Therefore, make sure that during the game drive you are not only looking out over the savannah, but also have your eyes focused up in the trees! An evening walk along the banks of River Ntungwe is possible.

Enjojo Lodge: Full board 

A day for lion-spotting – keep those eyes peeled as we head deep into the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park in search of tree-climbing lions. Is that a tail hanging from that branch?!
