Camping in Queens, at a glance
Queen Elizabeth National Park is separated into 5 main areas:
Most camp sites offer permanent tents which blend a canvas exterior with a thatched roof that provides protection from the sun and rain. The accommodation varies between self-contained tents, and non-self-contained tents with communal toilet facilities.
Ishasha Wilderness Camp
10 private canvas tents offer an authentic tented camping experience without compromising on comfort or style. Each tent overlooks the Ntungwe River, and your veranda will offer a fantastic view of the local hippos and herds of elephants. The tents are designed in the East African Meru style, and are comfortable and spacious.
Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with eco-friendly toilets and showers to minimise the camp’s environmental impact. Solar panels provide power to the tents. This eco-friendly accommodation is perfect for environmentally conscious travellers.
The central area of the camp contains a comfortable lounge, bar, dining area, spacious veranda, and even a quiet library for avid readers.
Located just off the Kasese-Mbarara main road, Bush Camp has great access to the Kazinga Channel. As well as offering 12 bandas, the lodge allows you to choose between self-contained and non-self-contained tents.
The camp offers 2 self-contained tents which are perfect for families. The tents are a short distance from the main camp, but they are only suitable for travellers who have their own car. Note that walking back from the main camp at night is not safe.
The camp offers comfortable budget accommodation in the form of 10 non-self-contained tents. Each tent contains a double bed, a bedside table, and a power outlet. Toilet facilities are communal.
Kasenyi Safari Camp
Located on the shores of Lake Bunyampaka in the Kasenyi savannah of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kasenyi Safari Camp has a spectacular location. The camp offers 8 tents which are built on raised platforms and covered by a thatched canopy roof.
Each tent contains a king-sized bed, an en-suite bathroom, and a spacious living area. The camp is a hub for wildlife, and guests often see lions, leopards, hippos, and hyenas, which howl during the night.
Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the restaurant, and there is an additional cost for Wi-Fi access in your tent.
Engiri Game Lodge and Campsite
Located 300m off the Mbarara-Kasese road, Engiri is situated near to Bush Camp on the bank of the Kazinga Channel. Engiri offers great access to the Kazinga Channel, Queen Elizabeth National Park’s head office, and the Kasenyi Plains.
You have the choice between bringing your own tent, or renting a permanent tent with a twin bed, bedding, towels, and soap.
Engiri has a restaurant which is run by a dedicated team of chefs. They prepare a range of delicious dishes with fresh, local ingredients.
