Three Day Queen Elizabeth National Park Safari
Join us for this three-day safari through Queen Elizabeth National Park. Prices are $585 per person.
Day 1: Travel from Entebbe Airport to Queen Elizabeth National Park
You will be picked up from the airport by our professional driver and guide, who will brief you about your safari and then transfer you to Queen Elizabeth National Park. On our way we will have stopovers at the Ugandan equator at Kayabwe for a water experiment, pictures and souvenir shopping. After lunch at Igongo Cultural Center Mbarara, we continue to the southwest and head for the Western Rift Valley. We will enter the park with a mini game drive, in search for wildlife that includes waterbucks, bushbucks, kobs, buffaloes, elephants, jackals, hippos, warthogs, lions and leopards among others. We proceed on and check in to the Park View Lodge for dinner and overnight. For an upgrade you can stay at Mweya Safari Lodge or Kyambura Gorge Lodge.
Day 2: Queen Elizabeth National Park
The day begins early as we go for our morning game drive, heading for Kasenyi plains, towards the kobs' mating grounds, in search of wildlife that may include the bushbuck, waterbuck, elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards and other wildlife in their natural habitat. The game drives normally take 3 - 4 hours before returning for breakfast. In the afternoon we take on a boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel, a natural link between Lake Edward and Lake George. The Channel accommodates abundant wildlife. Hundreds of birds can be sighted fishing in the channel alongside hundreds of hippos that are cooling off at the shores. This cruise will definitely be one of the highlights of your safari. Dinner and overnight at Queen Elizabeth Bush Lodge. For an upgrade you can stay at Park View Safari Lodge or River Side Safari Lodge.
Day 3: Queen Elizabeth National Park and back to Kampala
After breakfast we will take a tour to Katwe Salt Lake, the biggest of only 2 productive salt lakes in this park and western Uganda as a whole. Here salt is extracted locally by the local communities, for them to earn a living for their families. You will also be able to learn about the protective gear needed for this work, as well. We later proceed on to Entebbe, with a lunch stopover at Agip Motel Mbarara. We take another stopover at the Equator for souvenir shopping. From there, we drive straight to the airport for your flight home. This will be the end of our safari; thank you for supporting Bright Safaris Uganda and the Bright Orphan Project.
