Ishasha Tented Camp
Ishasha Wilderness Camp is situated in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, and is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness.
Each of the ten spacious framed canvas rooms, situated in the wooded area besides the river, is comfortably furnished and with its own private en suite bathroom providing hot water 'bush' showers and a flushing eco friendly toilet. There is a central lounge and dining area under a cool thatched roof, providing 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. Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavoured cuisine.
This exclusive camp is located in an 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. From Ishasha you can enjoy game drives or explore the camp on foot and enjoy some bird watching.
Combined with excellent game viewing opportunities, the camp provides the ideal location for a midway break between gorilla viewing in Bwindi and other areas of the Queen Elizabeth National Park.
