Ishasha Wilderness Camp


A small, delightful tented lodge situated by the Ntungwe River in a quiet area of the Southern Ishasha section of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Each of the camp’s ten spacious, canvas tented rooms has a private veranda, large bed with mosquito net, hot ‘bush’ shower, running water for hand-basins and a flushing ‘eco-friendly’ toilet. The large thatched central area contains an outdoor fire, bar and dining area, with alfresco dinners and bush breakfasts being popular options. Much birdlife and monkeys can be observed in the trees around the lodge, elephants occasionally wander through and hippos emerge to graze the lawns at night.


Communal dining area, bar, lounge, laundry service.

Local Wildlife

The wilderness surrounding the camp is breathtakingly beautiful and unspoilt, inhabited by prolific wildlife including elephant, buffalo, black-and-white colobus monkey and tree-climbing lions. Animals often move freely through Ishasha Wilderness Camp.

Optional Activities

Game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park, guided birding and nature walks, Kazinga Channel cruises, chimpanzee tracking in Kyambura Gorge, community visits.
