During a safari in Uganda one of the nice journeys is the one from the main part of Queen Elizabeth national park to the southern Ishasha sector, famous for its tree-climbing lions. Along this way you are travelling through the park, even though it is not really a game-drive track there are great chances of spotting interesting sights. This road is usually taken during our safaris when heading to or from Bwindi Impenetrable national park from Queen Elizabeth national park.
During a recent trip a safari team made the journey from Bwindi through Ishahsa on to the main part of Queen Elizabeth national park and Pumba Safari Cottages. They did not go into Ishasha for a game-drive but still had a great time filling the journey with interesting sights. Along the way elephants, topis, monkeys and birds were seen. Two highlights of different sizes were seeing dung beetles struggling with a ball on the road and then just before reaching the end of the journey seeing a leopard sitting on the road ahead of the car. The road to Ishasha offers beautiful nature and an exciting time pinning your eyes on the roadsides to see what you can find.
