Queen Elizabeth National Park is located in Western Uganda bordering DRC. It is the second-largest and one of Uganda’s most varied protected areas and it is strategically located in the Albertine Rift valley at the foot of the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains between lakes Edward and George.

Southern Queen Elizabeth National Park

Surrounded by other wonderful parks in the western region of Uganda, the Queen Elizabeth National Park is known for its rich biodiversity, wildlife, and history. In the southern part of the park, the remote Ishasha sector is home to tree-climbing lions that spend long lazy days dozing in the pretty fig trees. The Uganda Kob, which they watch from the branches, grazes the plains.
Around Lake Edward, enjoy fishing and game watching - make sure to look out for chimpanzees, elephants, crocodiles, and perennial and migratory bird species.
