Overview & Features

Ishasha Wilderness Camp is situated inside the Southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the Ntungwe river, and is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness. This exclusive camp offers quality accommodation and services in this unspoilt remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park famous for its tree climbing lions that can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees in the area.

Each of the ten spacious framed canvas rooms, situated in the wooded area besides the river, is comfortably furnished and with large mosquito netted beds, its own private en suite bathroom and dressing area providing running water, hot water ‘bush’ showers and a flushing eco-friendly toilet.

A central lounge and dining area, under a cool thatched roof, provides a comfortable environment for meals and relaxing during the day. A shaded area beside the river offers al fresco dining and an evening ‘fireplace’ for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experience.

    True luxury in genuine African wilderness. My friend and I travelled to Ishasha in January 2014. I had known about this lodge for a long time and was very excited to finally get the opportunity to stay there. My booking was handled effortlessly by Elizabeth in Kampala. We travelled from the Queen Elizabeth side and drove into the sunset as we reached the park. Whilst the road is a bit bumpy, it’s definitely worth the trip. The lodge is not far from the park gate and we reached in time for a tasty dinner under the blight stars, beside the river and then had drinks at the campfire before retiring to a lovely room with (possibly my favourite part), a little bedtime story printed out and on the pillow. I won’t spoil the ending! We got up the next morning and took it slow. We then took a game drive and found 5 lions in one tree in the south or the park. We felt like the luckiest people on the planet. We then went back to the lodge before heading on to our next destination. The wildlife surrounding the lodge was wonderful, especially the black and white colobus monkeys. The lodge was well managed by Abu. The staff really made us feel welcome and relaxed and were very flexible when we were about 4 hours late for lunch as we hadn’t wanted to leave the lions. We will definitely be going back!

    What more can you ask for!?
