Ishasha Wilderness Camp
Queen Elizabeth National Park
Located in one of the more exclusive areas of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Ishasha Wilderness Camp creates a peaceful setting on the banks of the Ntungwe River. The lodge blends seamlessly into its wild natural surroundings.
Wildlife moves unhindered through Ishasha Wilderness Camp. Guests can go on game drives in the early morning and late afternoon, choose to go on a guided walk to admire the bird life or perhaps a river cruise to the Hippo-rich Kazinga Channel located to the north of the park. Close to the lodge is the magnificent Kyambura Gorge, where guests can walk to see a small troop of chimpanzees. To experience the local culture, visit the members of the nearby community and sample some of their traditional foods, learn what plants they consider to have medicinal value.
Just ten spacious tented rooms create a true refuge in this unique wilderness. Large, mosquito-netted beds look out onto private verandas with beautiful river views. Simple and elegant interiors, hot bush showers and flushing toilets ensure a taste of pure comfort in this wild setting.
A spacious thatched lounge provides the ideal place for guests to relax. Meals are served either in the cosy dining area or on the banks of the river. Each evening a welcoming fire is started creating a warm and relaxed area for guests to share stories of the day’s adventures.
Morning and afternoon game drives, guided walks, birding, community interaction and discoveries of their traditional ways of life are immersive and incredibly interesting. Boat cruises are well worth it and the diversity of birds and mammals alike make it en enjoyable afternoon.
