  • 3 Day Excursion to the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda

    A trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park AT Uganda Vision Resource Centre:

    Queen Elizabeth National park is one of the most interestingly beautiful destinations in the whole world! Rolling hills and valleys caress the savannah plains, speckled with acacia woodland before soaring inland to explosion craters, some with pure water lakes. The Launch Cruise along the famous Kazinga Channel, the Crater Lake drive and a nature walk to the Kyambura gorge and the blue lake, are the most thrilling experiences in this park. Our Kazinga channel launch cruise is the most luxurious in the western Uganda, plying these waters with comfort, elegance and attentive service, affording superb wildlife viewing from your observation deck, is far much re-assuring!

    In the vicinity are free-standing snow-capped Rwenzori mountain ranges; quaint Bunyaruguru green farms and villages, whose charming residents are descendants of Buganda immigrants. The area is carved out of dense, tropical rain forests and hilly landscapes of the fertile volcanic soils dotted with numerous cup-shaped, serpentine-shaped crater lakes, glazed in different colours including blue, green, black and transparent. These dazzling Bunyaruguru craters embrace tracts of massive volcanic upheavals with inferred Holocene eruptions that occurred about 5000 years ago.

    The fort portal area craters and hills are a continuum of the Bunyaruguru crater field extension. Crater-Lake-Exploration: Bunyaruguru-Craters
