Game Viewing
Uganda is well endowed with an array of wildlife found in the 10 National Parks and the various game reserves. Visits to these parks and reserves will bring you close to life in the wild and you will truly be part of it during the game drives. A game drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park, for example, will bring you in close contact with Elephants, bush bucks, water bucks, giant forest hogs, topis as well as the leopard. The Ishasha sector of the park is home to the tree climbing lions and the grasslands there support a large population of Uganda Kobs. Apart from game drives, game may also be viewed during the launch cruise along the Kazinga channel. Sight yawning hippos as you go on the cruise.

In Murchison falls National Park, most of the game drives take place on the northern side of the Nile as there are few animals on the southern bank due to dense vegetation. However, the trap between the top of the falls and Rabongo offers wildlife such as Jackson hartebeests, water buck, baboon, oribi and in some few cases elephants and lions. The Nile valley is one of the hottest places in Uganda and animals tend to look for shade and shelter at around eleven. Therefore early morning is the best time to see and photograph animals.
