Ishasha Wilderness Camp

With the backdrop of the Rwenzori Mountains to the north and the Virunga volcanoes to the south, there are few places on earth to rival the scenery in the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Our exclusive tented camp is located on the Ntungwe river within the southern Ishasha sector of the park – an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness.

Large herds of elephant, buffalo, Uganda kob and topi are often seen, as well as ‘tree-climbing’ lions. The camp is the only camp within a 70 KM radius in Queen ELizabeth National Park, giving a feeling of complete exclusivity. Ishasha Wilderness Camp is situated inside the southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the Ntungwe river, and is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness. This exclusive tented camp offers quality accommodation and services in this unspoilt remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park famous for its tree climbing lions that can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees in the area.

Each of the ten spacious East African style Meru tents, situated in the wooded area besides the river, is comfortably furnished and with its own private en suite bathroom and dressing area providing hot water ‘bush’ showers and an eco friendly toilet. A central lounge / dining area, under a cool thatched roof, provides a comfortable environment for meals and relaxing during the day. A shaded area beside the river offers al fresco dining and an evening ‘fireplace’ for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experience. As the camp is within the National Park, we have designed it to be as low impact as possible with low usage of water, power and other resources. Solar power is used for lighting with power points limited to a central area allocated for recharging cameras and videos. Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavoured cuisine with most meals being of several courses. Our bar has a selection of local and imported beverages and our friendly local staff will attend to your needs. Hot beverages are available throughout the day on a self service basis, and are delivered to your tent with early morning wake up calls as required, allowing you to savour the early morning sounds of the ‘bush’ awakening
