Queen Elizabeth National Park is as good as Murchison, Kibale and Kidepo combined as it has a collection of the best of what they have to offer. This cuts across from wildlife species and diverse natural features, gorges where you can track primates, foothills of astonishing mountains, and rivers with sunset boat cruises. The cherry on the cake is an open savannah where you can watch tree climbing lions strike prey at unbelievable speeds.
Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth National Park
The boat ride at Kazinga Channel is really sensational and rejuvenating, the river itself is beautiful with a parade of hippos and birds. It is a vast river stretching between Lake George and Edward. Among the things that make it unique is that you get much closer to the wildlife species that have been around since the ice age. One such is the crocodile, a beastly reptile that has been around since the time when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. The Bird life here is extensive both in numbers and species. This is thanks to the park's ability to attract 600 recorded species. Within 30 minutes-you will have seen at least 50 different species. At Kazinga, you will watch kingfishers and eagles as they dive bomb into the water to grab fish.

You will follow them as they travel through the forest, rest, groom each other-eat, drum buttress roots of trees.
