Kyambura to Ishasha – Views from the window

The road from Kyambura to Ishasha takes you through Queen Elizabeth National Park and the chance of spotting something interesting by the roadside is big. Starting off from the lodge in Kyambura in the morning you can if you are lucky be met by elephants as soon as driving down in to Queen Elizabeth National Park. It is not uncommon that they are seen feeding close to the road and you get some great photo opportunities. Just before reaching the Kazinga channel you take a turn to the left driving southwards. The road is now without asphalt and the landscape is one of savanna with grass and trees far apart.

 

Don’t be surprised if you are passing by a fully loaded bike in the middle of Queen Elizabeth NP. There are in fact communities living within the park and for many of them a bike is the available mode of transport. To an onlooker, knowing there are lions and buffalos around, it seem to be a risky venture. Continuing on there will be more trees around you and most likely you will see some monkeys. Baboons spend time by the roadsides and are amusing to watch for a bit. Further on you will have a nice view over the Maramagambo forest.

 

The easiest way to keep track on how far you have reached along this wilderness road is to count the bridges, before reaching Ishasha you should have driven over five of them. A few years back one of our safari teams were lucky enough to spot the lions of Ishasha on one of these bridges so you never know what can happen along this adventurous road. After a hopefully exciting ride you will drive through the gates of the Ishasha part of Queen Elizabeth NP and start your search for the tree climbing lions of Ishasha.
