Our open-roof Land Cruiser will take you to Rwenshama, a fishing village on the shore of Lake Edward. During the 40-minute drive from our lodge straight through the park you will surely encounter plenty of wildlife. In Rwenshama, see how the traditional fishermen bring their catch on shore: tilapia, lungfish, catfish …
Hippos lurking, pelicans fishing and if your timing is right, the lone elephant bull “Da Boss” will be doing his daily walk along the shoreline.
Queen Elizabeth National Park has over 600 species of birds, which makes it a prime destination for birders in East Africa. Thanks to the combination of swamps, acacia forest and savannah grassland, Ishasha attracts a large variety of birds including the shoebill stork. We have a birder guide at your disposal.
A 2-hour nature walk in the countryside behind the lodge will give you a real feel of the place. It will enrich your trip, bring you closer to nature and nothing is more relaxing.
Get to know the local bakiga culture and see their crafts and unique village. We can arrange guided walks (1 to 3 hours) or bicycle rides (2 hours).
Our well-maintained Land Cruiser can be rented (with driver / guide) for game drives and short transfers (Bwindi, Kihihi, Mweya).
