Queen Elizabeth National Park lies in the western region of Uganda and happens to be the most visited national park in the country.

With more than 600 distinct bird species at offer in the region, this park has the highest concentration of birds than any other national park in the entire East African side.
Two enchanting lakes, Lake George (north-east of the park) and Lake Edward (south-west of the park) meet each other through the Kazinga Channel (40 Km long) where boat safaris take place. Kazinga Channel is quite popular as it draws variety of animals (hippos being the centre of attraction) and birds. Boat safaris start everyday at 9.00 am or at 2.00 pm, and take anywhere between 2 to 5 hours to complete the entire spread. There are approximately 5,000 hippos, 2,500 elephants, & 10,000 buffalo in the park and an early morning game drive through Kasenyi, the North Kazinga Plains and the Ishasha part could introduce you to lions & leopards (if you are lucky!). Also, in the Kasese district you will find the Uganda Equator, the place in the country from where the equator passes through. Tourists can buy many artefacts from here that emphasis on the fact that the world is divided into two hemispheres somewhere around this place.
