Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination.

The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna, shady, humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.

Set against the backdrop of the jagged Rwenzori Mountains, the park’s magnificent vistas include dozens of enormous craters carved dramatically into rolling green hills, panoramic views of the Kazinga Channel with its banks lined with hippos, buffalo and elephants, and the endless Ishasha plains, whose fig trees hide lions ready to pounce on herds of unsuspecting Uganda Kob. Katara Lodge and Elephant Plains Lodge are one of the best lodges you can make use of.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rain forest, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants.

More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.

This biologically diverse region also provides shelter to a further 120 mammals, including several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes.

There are around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics. A variety of luxury lodges such as Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, Gorilla Forest Camp, Bwindi Lodge and Mahogany Springs on request.

Lake Bunyonyi is believed to be the second deepest lake in Africa with its deepest end approximately 900m.

The lake is dotted with 29 islands. The most prominent of these include the Akampene Island also known as the punishment island, Bushara, Kyahugye, Bwama and Njuyeera, and Bucuranuka.

Also, the deepest lake in Uganda, home of Otters, crayfish and a place of many little birds in South-western Uganda lies between Kisoro and Kabale districts close to the border with Rwanda.

Then the Arcadia Cottages with beautiful view of the Crater Lake is the best lodge where you can stay for your honeymoon.

Lake Mburo National Park is a compact gem, located conveniently close to the highway that connects Kampala to the parks of western Uganda.

It is the smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks and underlain by ancient Precambrian metamorphic rocks which date back more than 500 million years.

It is home to 350 bird species as well as zebra, impala, eland, buffalo, oribi, Defassa water buck, leopard, hippo, hyena, topi and reed buck.

Together with 13 other lakes in the area, Lake Mburo forms part of a 50km-long wetland system linked by a swamp. Five of these lakes lie within the park’s borders.

Once covered by open savanna, Lake Mburo National Park now contains much woodland as there are no elephants to tame the vegetation. Mihingo Lodge and Rwakobo Rock Lodge re the perfect sleepovers for that place.
