After breakfast we drive through stunning Savannah grasslands as we head to Queen Elizabeth National Park.

It is a fabulous site to see the lions draped from the trees, and nowhere in Africa do you stand a better chance of seeing this than in the large low limbed fig tree of Ishasha. Or take the alternative route through cultivated expanses.
While in Queen Elizabeth National park we do a game drive in the northern sector of the park, the Baboon Cliff famous for its scenery, and views of the shadows of the mountains of the moon – the Rwenzoris.

DAY 6: Queen Elizabeth National Park
We set out early in the morning for a game drive in the northern part of the park on the Kasenyi Track in search of lions, elephants, and solitary buffaloes. This is the best time for opportunities of viewing the cats in action owing to the vast population of Uganda Kobs. We have an excellent chance to view just about every animal here at very close range. Mid-morning relax by the pool at the lodge. Then we go for a launch trip along the Kazinga Channel. This gives you the opportunity to view wildlife up close: hippo’s huff and spray mere feet away from the boat, buffalo linger in the shallows. The shores of the channel are also home to an array of birds including pink backed pelicans, pied and malachite kingfishers, saddle billed stork and many others. After this wonderful afternoon, enjoy a slow drive to relaxation at our accommodation. (Full Board) Ihamba Lodge/Enganzi Lodge
