Day 4   (Farewell, Homeward Bound)

The journey beckons back to Entebbe, where their flight homeward awaits. The scenic flight back offers one last glimpse of Uganda's diverse landscapes. With the memories of Bwindi's enchantment and the tranquility of Entebbe lingering, board your flight home, carrying the spirit of adventure and the echoes of the wild.

Originally Kazinga National Park with the Kazinga channel connecting the Lakes; Edward in the south and George in the north - it was renamed QENP after Queen Elizabeth visited Uganda in 1954. It's the most popular savanna in Uganda in part due to the opportunity to spot the elusive tree-climbing lions in Ishasha. QENP is home to over 200 lions as the park is a conservation unit for the beasts. 

The Kazinga channel lends itself to some of the best water-based safari experiences. Lone male buffalo hiding out from predators, herds of Elephants taking a bath, hippos, birds, crocs and monitor lizards are just a few that are often found on its banks.
