Queen Elizabeth National Park Safari.  My guide Kenneth with Prime Uganda Safaris and Tours picked me up at the Speke Resort Munyonyo in Kampala Uganda at about 0500 to begin the 450+ km drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Day 1 - After a long drive from Kampala we arrived in northern Queen Elizabeth National Park around 1400, just in time to get a front seat on the Kazinga Channel boat safari.  After we did a short game drive before sunset, then then off to to the Enganzi Lodge.  This lodge was incredible. The location was perfect, accommodations and staff were awesome, would have enjoyed staying a few more nights

Day 2 - Woke to a wonderful overlook view of the northern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park.  Traveled from the northern sector to Ishasha sector in the southern region of the park. After a sunrise to sunset game drive, it was nice to finally arrive at the Ishasha Jungle Lodge.  The lodge was great, however, I was awakened at about 0200 to loud growling outside my hut.  I was snapped back into the realization that I'm in the middle of Africa.
