- Malaria & Safety Queen Elizabeth NP Safaris

Health and safety while traveling in Queen Elizabeth National Park

A trip to Queen Elizabeth NP, in our opinion, can easily be made safely. The people you will come into contact with are primarily fellow tourists and staff working for the park, camps or tour operators.
Malaria & vaccinations
It is recommended to take anti-malarial medication and apply mosquito repellent that contains 30% DEET or more to help counteract the risk of malaria (and remember to cover exposed skin in the evenings). There are also vaccinations recommended for Uganda, which you should ask your travel clinic or local doctor about.
Wildlife viewing and primate tracking
Wildlife viewing should always be done with caution and respect for the animals. Use your common sense and remember that the behavior of wild animals can be unpredictable. Limiting dangers is easily done by following the expert directions of your guide. And please take note of the wildlife viewing and primate tracking safety precautions below.
