Explore the Kazinga tracks by following a network of tracks criss-crossing the savannah, stretching from the northern Kazinga Channel riverbanks to the explosion crater lake pools on the northern park boundary. These tracks are known for offering excellent chances of up close and clear sightings of elephant herds as they cross the tracks and roam down to the water's edge to cool off in the heat of the day. This rolling savannah landscape dotted with thickets of cactus trees also offers you the chance to spot species such as lion, Uganda kob, waterbuck and buffalo. Track’s included in the royal visit of Queen Elizabeth are also found here including the Queen’s Mile and Royal Circuit, which you can explore at your own pace alongside Kob Circuit and Leopard Loop.
Estimated excursion time: 3 hrs
Embark on a water safari to explore the Kazinga Channel, which flows from Lake Edward to Lake George through the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park. The channel is set in picturesque scenery, with acacia and euphorbia tree covered slopes, cliff heads protruding above you and grassy clearing allowing for excellent wildlife viewing. As you meander your way along the channel you’ll seek out buffalos, warthogs and waterbucks on the riverbanks. If you’re lucky you’ll even meet elephants bathing as they cool off from the heat of the day! The channel is also a prime location to view crocodiles basking on the riverbanks and hippo pods, calling to each other across the water. After a couple of hours you’ll reach a fishing village positioned on the end of the channel. Here you can view a diverse array of birds which often congregate here, sunning themselves on the riverbanks, before you make the return journey to the docks on the Mweya Peninsula.
