The Camp is one of those exclusive lodges in Uganda. It is a must-do and sees lodges if Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Queen Elizabeth Park are on the itinerary.  It is close to the Buhoma area of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and near the Kihihi Airstrip with daily flights to and from Entebbe International Airport.

We highly recommend Ishasha Wilderness Camp as the lodge to stay at in the Ishasha area of Queen Elizabeth Park.
