We saw a lot of wildlife in QE park - the boat trip was BRILLIANT, we saw a pride of lions eating a kill, ended up driving through a herd of elephant and saw all manner of other creatures. It seemed more developed than elsewhere with some fairly big hotel-style lodges (we stayed in a small lodge a bit more out of the way) which was the only negative I can think of.

Beautiful, open park that seemed very authentic with the savanna setting. Took a wonderful sunset cruise on the Kazinga Channel where we saw hippos, elephants, buffalos, and crocodiles, plus many birds, such as fish eagles, storks, pelicans, herons, ducks, swollows and kingfishers. The game drives were rewarding as well.

Unfortunately most of the large wildlife was decimated in earlier years and is still recovering. There were many birds along the Kazinga Channel and we were fortunate to find a large herd of elephants but I understand that is an exception to the rule.

It is a good destination as it has a variety of wildlife, it is huge and you cannot be sure of what your are about to see and whether you will be lucky to see all the animals that live there.

Didn't see too many birds, but saw a lot of everything else: giraffes, hippos, zebras, elephants, etc.

The best safari experience to be had in Uganda.

I saw a diverse variety of wildlife with and without the guide. Even around the lodge you can get very close to the animals. The river trip was the highlight of the safari. Just make sure that you stay on the left side of the boat to get the best views. The guides were friendly and went out of their way to track down a lion for us. I also spent time in the Kazinga fishing village located in QEP and was amazed at how people could live in such proximity to the wildlife.

Different from Murchisson NP because this is where the elephant are in huge numbers. Expect to get up early to see lion or spotted hyena. At the lodge a muffin and coffe is served for the early birds. Also go on a boat ride for good bird viewing and a view of a fishing village as the man take their boats out.
