Very dry, quite flat not so exciting National Park. Unfortunately very limited wildlife sightings.

Had a major highway running along the park. Not a large variety of wildlife in our area. Was underwhelming again.
It was all day rain, i saw very few, the road is terrible. It is my experience because of the rain.

We had a fantastic time in the park, they've really kept it so natural.
Our safari guide, Moses Mugabirwa, single-handedly made all our dreams come true.
Fortunately, we ventured past our safari lodge and ended up in the village. There we met Moses Mugabirwa who ran his own tour company. This pleasant, and honorable man speaks perfect English and knew the park as though he lived there. In addition, his knowledge of all the animals and birds was enlightening. We spent several hours with him, broke for lunch, returned and finished around dark. Without doubt, he made all our dreams come true.

It is a very beautiful park but if you have done safari's in Kenya or Tanzania you might be a little bit disappointed not to see hirds of zebra's or giraffes because they are simple not there. On the other hand, the Kazinga Channel was just wonderful and the scenery is wonderful.

Good selection of animals and some of the Big 5 too. Lots of buffalo, hippo, and elephant by the river. Stay in the right place and you will have them right beside your room.
Dont waste yr Time and MONEY
I still recovering from the disappointment. QUEEN ELIZABETH PARK has almost no wildlife at the moment. One pays a lot to see nothing around even if one drives for hours. Even antelopes, which are normally abundant, are rarely seen therefore spotting the lions is almost impossible. The guides and the company rep, only after your first hours of game drive, start telling that it s been years not much animals are seen in the park n the government needs to open new tracks. My guide even lied to us about the number is lions in the parks. There are many villages within the area of Queen Elizabeth hence wild animals are destroying people crops and livestock n sometimes kill people and in revenge lions have been killed decreasing the numbers in the park. I would say don't fall into the trap unless you want to waste your money and time driving around an almost wildlife less park.
The park is huge and the number of animals are insignificant comparing to the massive area of the park. Won't recommend it to anyone.
