Located just over 200 km away from the city center is one of the more in explored jewels of Uganda. Lush plain savanna stretches as far as the eye can see, wildlife plays in reckless abandon, lions alongside gazelles,the blue sky alongside long green grass. Expect the unexpected, surprises lay ahead for the adventurous. Try it out this festive season.... More

Not worth going out of your way for, but if you're passing it's worth a quick visit. The only place you can see zebra in Uganda. Plenty of antelope and hippo. They have one lion there if you fancy trying to find it!

The park has lots of animals, but only a few species. The boat ride and the morning game drive were the highlights. Loved staying at Eagles Nest.

Visited park during an excellent 2 week trip to Uganda. Drove to park HQ in our rented Toyota Rav4 (excellent service from Roadtrip Uganda car hire) & chose to stay in the park authority tents. Did a fantastic boat trip at sunset where we saw 3 finfoots - a bird we've tried & failed to see in the past. Also... More
