Dallago Tours and Safaris Uganda, a land of fascinating beauty and contrasts: From the snow – capped mountains to the rolling hills, the hot hazy savannahs teaming with wildlife to the canopied rainforest alive with birdlife, the chimpanzees crashing through the forest branches to the majestic gorillas chewing softly in the bamboo thicket. The meandering R. Nile twisting its way north words with thundering water falls, to the shimmering white sandy beaches and the friendly peoples’ smiling faces welcomes you to this ‘Pearl of Africa’.
Queen Elizabeth National Park lies north and south of the equator in southwestern Uganda with open savannah to rainforest, dense papyrus swamps and brooding crater lakes like Lake Edward. No wonder that Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts one of the highest biodiversity ratings of any game reserve in the world. Almost 100 mammal species and a remarkable 606 bird species makes this superb safari territory, with elephant, school s of hippos, giant forest hog and the Uganda kob all regularly sighted around the tourist village on the Mweya Peninsula – which also boasts a marvelous waterfront setting in the shadow of the Rwenzori Mountains.
Bird species include the martial eagle, black-rumped buttonquail, Verreaux’s eagle owl and African skimmer to name but a few. The remote and beautiful extension of Queen Elizabeth National Park, called Ishasha, is famed for its tree-climbing lions. It is a fabulous sight to see the lions draped from the trees and nowhere in Africa do you stand a better chance of seeing this than in the large low limbed fig trees of this sector.
