WHY WE LIKE IT? Situated in the Ishasha Region of Queen Elizabeth National Park, an area famous for the tree climbing lions.

HOW TO GET THERE? Kihihi airstrip is the closest airstrip which is 1 hour and 15 minutes from the camp. The camp can also be reached by vehicle from Kampala.

SPECIAL INTEREST: For many visiting Uganda, this is the perfect spot to incorporate a more traditional safari experience into the trip.

Ishasha may be visited all year round. For those keen on photography, it is particularly rewarding in April and June/July, as the air is clear. Game and bird life is prolific all year round, but bird-watching is particularly good during the summer months (Oct–Nov) for migratory species as well as endemics.

Being within the park the wildlife is free to also pass through the camp and elephants can be seen bathing in the river, buffalo enjoy grazing and resident troops of Black-and-White Colobus and vervet monkeys are frequently viewed. If you are lucky, George, the lone hippo, can also be seen beside the camp. Our attentive security staff are always on hand to escort and assist you should you feel the wildlife is too close!

Due to the location of the camp, you are unlikely to encounter many other people during your game drives, giving a feeling of ‘owning’ the park! From Ishasha you may enjoy game drives either in your safari vehicle, or for fly-in guests on our open vehicle, or you may explore the camp on foot and do some bird-watching.
