The Queen Elisabeth National Park situated in south-west Uganda has a remarkably diverse landscape which ranges from open savannah to scrubland, swamps, rivers and lakes to tropical humid forests. A natural waterway, the 32 to 40 km the Kazinga Channel between Lake Edward in the west and Lake George in the east, divides the park into two sections. "Water hiking" along the channel on a river trip gives year-round views of a very diverse wildlife on the riverside.
Uganda's biggest National Park is famous for its wildlife biodiversity with 95 different species of mammals including lions, warthogs, buffalos, rare aquatic sitatunga antelopes, giant forest hogs, Uganda kobs, topsi, waterbucks, elephants and leopards and over 600 different species of birds. The Kazinga Channel alone is said to contain the world’s largest concentration of hippos but also crocodiles, and an abundance of birds.
Lake Mburo National Park is a smaller National Park in the Middle of Uganda but inhabits rare species including impala, which, in Uganda, only lives in Lake Mburo, and Burchell’s zebra and eland which are found only here. In Lake Mburo NP it is possible to do a Safari exploring the extraordinary nature by foot where you experience the nature and wildlife through another angle of view.
Uganda is one of the few countries in the world where you can cross the equator on land and have a nice rest and selfie stop where the world divides into south and north.
