Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Ishasha Wilderness Camp is situated inside the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the Ntungwe River. The only upmarket accommodation in the area, it is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness.

Each of the camp's ten spacious Meru tents is situated in a wooded area beside the river. All are comfortably furnished and have private en suite facilities. The camp's central lounge and dining area, also under canvas, is a comfortable, relaxed spot, while the outdoor shaded area beside the river offers al fresco dining and an evening fireplace to sit and watch the world go by.Perhaps most importantly, the camp is set in an unspoilt wilderness famous for the tree climbing lions that can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees in the area. Combined with excellent game viewing opportunities for buffalo, elephants, kob, topi and other species of antelope, the camp provides the ideal location for a midway break, between gorilla viewing in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the other areas of QENP or Kibale Forest.
