Ishasha Wilderness Camp @ Queen Elizabeth National Park


                                             ISHASHA WILDERNESS CAMP


Arguably the only true wilderness facility in Uganda and the only lodge actually set with in the park’s Ishasha sector, the excellent camp is carved into the riparian forest along the Ntungwe River and located in the thick of the wildlife action. Elephants regularly cross the river within view of the camp, lion and leopard are often found close by, while colobus monkeys emit their guttural croak in the trees overhead. This place is alive with birds, including the Pel’s fishing owl and African finfoot.


Spacious, Wooden Framed, Canvas Tented Rooms

Set next to the Ntungwe River, each of the camp’s ten spacious canvas tented rooms has a private verandah overlooking the river. Comfortably furnished with large mosquito-netted beds, all rooms are en suite with hot ‘bush’ showers, running water for hand-basins and a flushing ‘eco-friendly’ toilet.

Restaurant and Bar

The thatched central lounge and dining area provide a comfortable setting for meals and relaxation, although we often serve meals ‘al fresco’ next to the river. In the evening, the outdoor fireplace is the perfect place for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experiences.

Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavored cuisine with all meals being of several delicious courses. Our bar has a selection of local and imported beverages and our friendly local staff will attend to your needs.

Hot beverages are available throughout the day on a self-service basis, and are delivered to your room with early morning wake up calls as required, allowing you to savour the early morning sounds of the ‘bush’ awakening.

Other Services

Being within the park you may be lucky enough to see wildlife moving freely through the camp. Our attentive security staff is always on hand to escort and assist you should you feel the wildlife is too close.

Bush breakfasts and sundowners within the wilderness of the National Park complete the ‘bush’ experience offered at Ishasha Wilderness Camp.

Free Wi-Fi internet, recharging facilities and a curio/local craft shop are available in the central dining area.
