The Observatory is a holiday home/ safari lodge built into a hillside overlooking the Queen Elizabeth National Park. It allows you to enjoy all the park perks without having to pay the park fees every day, fees you would have had to pay on even days when you feel like staying in and enjoying a good book on the balcony where, in between chapters, you can watch herds of elephants cross the plains right in front of you.
