Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Ishasha Wilderness Camp is a tranquil, intimate retreat set on the banks of the Ntungwe River, in Uganda. It lies within the southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Blending perfectly into their wild natural setting, the camp has ten spacious eco-friendly tented rooms and is a true refuge in the wilderness. Large, mosquito-netted beds look out onto private verandas with beautiful river views. Simple but elegant interiors, as well as hot bush showers and flushing toilets, ensure a taste of pure comfort in this wild setting.

A spacious thatched lounge provides the ideal place for guests to relax, while meals are served either in the cosy dining area or al fresco on the banks of the river. And at the end of the day, the blazing bonfire is the ideal focal point for guests to share stories of the day’s adventures.

Why we like it here

This area, in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, is famous for its tree climbing lions that can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees.

Gently drift off to sleep at night, listening to the sounds of Africa outside your tented room.

Kick back on your private veranda while looking out for elephant passing by on the river’s banks.

Things to be aware of

As the lodge is inside the park and wildlife can roam freely, it is strongly advised that you get an attendant to accompany you when moving about the camp at night.

Ishahsha is an eco-friendly camp and has hot “bush” showers, running water for hand-basins and a flushing “eco-friendly” toilet.

There are no guarantees that you will see the elusive tree-climbing lions.
