Set next to the Ntungwe River, Ishasha Wilderness Camp is an idyllic retreat as well as the only camp within Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Each of the ten spacious tents boasts large beds draped in mosquito netting, comfortable furnishings, and a dressing area. These classic clean-lined tents feature a traditional safari bathroom with running water, eco-friendly toilet facilities, and a hot water “bush” shower. Each tent enjoys a private veranda overlooking the river making it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beauties of the landscape. Hot beverages are delivered to the tents for a welcoming wake up call.
The camps location in Queen Elizabeth National Park provides guests with an amazing diversity of wildlife. The Park spreads over an area of 1,200 square miles in the western arm of the Great East African Rift Valley. Elephant, lion, hippo, leopard, buffalo, Uganda Kob, baboon, and a variety of birds make their home in the area. Particular to the southern area of the park are tree-climbing lions often found resting in the large fig trees as well as the Maramagambo, one of the largest surviving natural forests in Uganda. Black-and-White Colobus and vervet monkeys are frequently viewed in the area.
