Queen Elizabeth National Park
Key Facts

Size: 1,978km².

Queen Elizabeth spans the equator line; monuments on either side of the road mark the exact spot where it crosses latitude zero degrees.

The park was founded in 1952 as Kazinga National Park, and renamed two years later to commemorate a visit by Queen Elizabeth II.

The park is home to over 95 mammal species and over 600 bird species.

The Katwe explosion craters mark the park’s highest point at 1,350m above sea level, while the lowest point is at 910m, at Lake Edward.

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

Very proximate to Rwenzori Mountains, the park’s superb views include lots of massive craters carved vividly 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 pounce on herds of  the unsuspecting  Uganda kob.

Queen Elizabeth National Park has a captivating cultural history. There are many opportunities for visitors to meet the local communities and enjoy storytelling, dance, music and their way of living. The gazetting of the park has ensured the conservation of its ecosystems, which in turn benefits the surrounding communities.

Please note

Most people travelling to Uganda will treat themselves to a once-in-a-lifetime safari at Queen Elizabeth National Park. Once-in-a-lifetime because so many safari tours keep you cooped up in a small minivan allowing you to take turns to pop your head through the skylight taking photos through the windows however with many Queen Elizabeth National Park safaris you get to sit on top of a jeep as you travel through the park, capturing stunning photographs. Queen Elizabeth National Park is the most popular destination in Uganda for those looking for a safari not least because of its diversity stretching from the Rwenzori Mountains that straddle the border with neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo to the shores of Lake Edward taking in forest, savannah and wetlands along the way.
