    Top Descriptions

    Queen Elizabeth is one of the most popular and archetypal national parks in . With forests, lakes and open savannahs, QENP has a varied and beautiful landscape with favourable conditions for game viewing. Indeed, it’s an excellent place to do a self-drive budget safari, with camping on the Mweya peninsula between grazing hippos and warthogs a truly memorable and exciting experience. But while QENP may be a great place for a first-time safari, if you’re already well versed in chasing down the big 5 then you might want to look elsewhere – perhaps north to . In truth, sightings of predators in the park are not as common as you might expect, and even the tree-climbing lions of can spend weeks at a time over in the DRC instead of inside the boundaries of the park. Maintenance is pretty bad too, with terribly potholed roads and overgrown tracks making the experience somewhat wilder than you might be prepared for – and leading one to question where those expensive park fees actually go. Nevertheless, QENP is a fantastic wilderness experience, especially if you’re fully prepared for destination Kob City. – Daniel

    Top Tips

    If you don’t have long in the park, the is probably your best bet for seeing the highest variety and density of wildlife in QENP.
    Don’t expect maintenance to be too high in QENP. Many of the through roads are potholed, some of the game tracks are quite rough and poorly (if at all) signposted and a good few of the trails are very overgrown. A 4×4 is quite necessary, especially during the rainy season.
    If you have time, do consider trying out the – and probably don’t bother with unless you’ve heard that the tree-climbing lions are around.
