One of Mamaland Safaris most popular safaris is the 4-days Queen Elizabeth safari where you get to see the best of this exciting park. The Queen Elizabeth safari starts with pick-up in the early morning of day 1 in Kampala, Entebbe or the location of your choice and then you make the journey down to Topi Lodge just at the edge of Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth NP. You spend 2 nights at Topi lodge to have plenty of time to explore Ishasha in search of tree-climbing lions, buffaloes, elephants and more with a morning and afternoon game-drive on day 2. Then on day 3 you make the journey up through the park to the main part of the park to go for the afternoon baot-cruise on Kazinga channel. This is a highlight as you see for exemple hippos, elephants and crocodiles enjoying the water. After the boat-cruise your guide takes you to our other lodge, Pumba Safari Cottages, located at the edge of the park by Kyambura with spectacular views of Queen Elizabeth NP. The last day you go for chimps trekking in Kalinzu forest before starting the journey back to Entebbe, Kampala or the location of your choice.

The first day you are picked up at the location of your choice and make the journey to Bwindi mountains, the home of the mountain gorillas. The next day you head into the jungle to meet the mysterious mountain gorilla and then make the drive down from the mountains to Topi Lodge Ishasha just at the edge of Queen Elizabeth NP's Ishasha southern sector.

This 12 days Uganda Safari lets you really experience Uganda as you search for the Big 5 & gorillas. Four of the Big 5 roam freely in National Parks in Uganda, this is the lion, leopard, buffalo and elephant that you during this safari will have chance to see in Murchison Falls NP and Queen Elizabeth NP. The 5th of the Big 5 is the rhino, that was hunted to extinction in Uganda in the 80’s, but it is now being reintroduced thanks to the great efforts of Ziwa Rhino sanctuary where you will see it during this safari. In addition to the Big 5 you go trekking the mysterious mountain gorillas as well as chimpanzees. Two nights are spent at our beautiful Topi Lodge by Ishasha, allowing plenty of time to search for the tree-climbing lions.
