3 Days Queen Elizabeth Uganda Wildlife Safaris Tour: Safari Overview

The 3 Days Queen Elizabeth Uganda Wildlife Safaris Tour introduces you to Uganda’s second-largest and most visited National Park by travelers taking on Uganda Safaris. On your Uganda Tour to the Park, you will have a stop-over at Uganda Equator in Kayabwe, and Igongo Cultural Center. You will go for a boat cruise at Kazinga Channel, a game drive in the Isasha sector in search for Tree-climbing lions and other animals, Chimpanzee tracking and other Primate tour in Bigodi Swamp.

Queen Elizabeth National Park was previously a grazing area for local Basongora pastoralists. When British explorers Stanley and Lugard toured the area towards the end of the last century, both reported the area to have been largely depopulated as a result of cattle raiding (from the Bunyoro and Buganda kingdoms) and epidemics of rinderpest and smallpox.

King of the Jungle

The Basongora social economy could not recover from these events and with the exception of remnant villages around the two lakes, the area was almost completely depopulated. Those who did remain were forced to turn to fish. These events allowed the game populations to increase and vegetation to change significantly and played an important role in determining the creation of the national park by the Protectorate administration. In 1906, the area to the north of Lake George was declared a Game Reserve, in order to prevent what some administrators believed to be unregulated hunting by Africans and Europeans and growing pressure for development of cotton and wheat production.

By 1912, the whole of the Lake George and Ishasha areas (Lake George Game Reserve) were declared restricted areas, agricultural and fishing communities moved out to other non-affected areas and the area was largely abandoned. Further outbreaks of sleeping sickness continued up until the mid-1930s. The National Park Ordinance was passed on 31st March 1952 and Queen Elizabeth National Park then, Kazinga National Park was legally gazetted later that year, following intense lobbying by the Chief Game Warden of that time, Bruce Kinloch, and the Governor. As a result, the land area protected within the Lake George Game Reserve area was expanded considerably to include a large area to the east of Lake Edward and Kazinga Channel.
