Ishasha Wilderness Camp
Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda
Ishasha Wilderness Camp enjoys an isolated setting on the Ntungwe River in the remote southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park. The region is famed for its tree-climbing lions, which can sometimes be spotted 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, furnished with large mosquito-netted beds. En suite bathrooms have a dressing area, hot and cold running water, "bush-style" showers, and an eco-friendly flush toilet. A central lounge, dining room and bar area under cool thatch provide a comfortable and convivial environment for meals and relaxing. A shaded area beside the river offers al fresco dining and a fireplace for guests to relax around over sundowners, sharing 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 allocated for recharging cameras and other small electronic devices. Wi-Fi access is available.
