Ishasha Wilderness Camp is situated inside the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the Ntungwe river, and is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness. Being the only upmarket accommodation in the area, this exclusive tented 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 East African style Meru tents, situated in the wooded area besides the river, is comfortably furnished and with its own private en suite bathroom and dressing area providing hot water “bush” showers and an eco friendly toilet.
A central lounge / dining area, also under canvas, provides a comfortable environment for meals and relaxing during the day. The outdoor shaded area besides the river offers el fresco dining and an evening “fireplace” venue for guests who come to enjoy this unique bush experience offered at this wilderness camp. Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavoured cuisine with most meals being of several courses. Our bar has a selection of local and imported beverages and our friendly local staff will attend to your needs.
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. Excursions to the Lake Edward Flats area are possible where large herds of game can be seen as well as birdlife, including the elusive shoebill stork at various times of the year.
