Amazing place to try a mobile Tented safari experience with Ujambo Boots Safaris for the Ultimate wilderness exploration and adventures. A lot of animals to view in a game drive like Lions, giraffes, hippos, antelope, buffalos among other endangered species

So many things to do and much to see. Wildscapes and wildlife. Jungle drives, savanna tours and boat rides! Unsurpassed views! Wonderful and welcoming Ugandans who REALLY show their appreciation of tourists visiting their beautiful country. Visit the park for 3 days minimum!!!!
