Day 1: Travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park by car.

Your driver guide shall then embark on a direct transfer to Queen Elizabeth as you begin the exploration of the fascinating savannah plains, the land of the Big 4 and beyond.

The park’s rich habitats, which include savannah, shady, tropical woodland, sparkling lakes, and fertile wetlands, make it an ideal habitat for the classic big game, ten primate species, including chimps, and over 600 bird species.

You will make a brief stopover for lunch along the way before entering the stunning Queen Elizabeth National Park, one of Uganda’s most outstanding treasures. Upon your arrival at the park, if time allows, you can go on an evening game drive after checking into your accommodation, or you can simply choose to relax with your family at your accommodation (while waiting for the next day’s activities).
