The guests did a game drive and an exciting boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel-Lake Edward where they saw a number of animals enjoying the waters.

According to authorities of Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) a body that oversees all the protected areas (Uganda), the number of local tourists visiting the national parks has increased. During the recent holiday (25th December 2021 to 1st/Jan/2022), over 3000 local tourists visited Queen Elizabeth National park.

Pontious Ezuma the Queen Elizabeth National park area Conservation Manager attributes the increase of domestic tourism to different promotional campaigns which have been conducted by the different stakeholders including; government, Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), Tour Agencies/companies, the Ministry of Tourism among others. “COVID-19 pandemic has also changed the mindset of most of our people,” Ezuma said.
