Queen Elizabeth National Park is one of Uganda’s most popular national parks and covers a wide range of habitats. This protected area of 1978 square kilometres encompasses savannah plains, sunken crater lakes and swamps and is bounded by the snow-covered peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains to the north. To the south west, you can often see the volcanic peaks of the Virungas, straddling the border with Rwanda. Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to almost 100 types of mammals and 600 different species of birds – the highest number recorded in any national park in Africa!
