Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda
Ishasha Wilderness Camp enjoys an isolated setting in the remote southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the Ntungwe River. The region is famed for its tree-climbing lions, which can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees in the area. Ten spacious framed canvas tents are situated in the wooded area beside the river, each comfortably furnished with large mosquito-netted beds and an en suite bathroom and dressing area with hot and cold running water, hot ‘bush-style' showers, and an eco-friendly flush toilet. A central lounge, dining and bar area under cool thatch provides a comfortable environment for meals and relaxing during the day. A shaded area beside the river offers al fresco dining and an evening fireplace for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experiences. The camp is designed to be as low-impact as possible, with carefully limited usage of water, power and other resources. Solar power is used for lighting, with power outlets limited to a central area that has been allocated for recharging cameras and other small electronic devices. Wireless Internet access is available.
