 Our Take on Lion Tracking Research;

Lion Tracking Research is done by 90% of our Clients who visit Queen Elizabeth Park and they are glad that they did so.

Lio Tracking Research is one of those out-of-the-Ordinary and Authentic Experiences in Uganda.

It is much more than a Game Drive, it is a time with researchers going about their daily business of tracking the collared Carnivores on the Kasenyi plains in Queen Elizabeth Park.

This is an experience that is unique to Queen Elizabeth Park and is not offered in other parks in Uganda.

We book the activity well in advance for our Clients going on Safari.
