Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda's most visited national park and was established in 1952 as Kazinga National Park and to commemorate the Queen's visit to Uganda and the park in 1954 it was renamed to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Queen Elizabeth, herself, donated money to the park and donated money to build a small bridge. In her honor, the East Africa Park Service renamed the park. Volcanic craters, grassy plains, lakes, and tropical forest all are featured in the park. Hiking is permitted in some areas.


Queen Elizabeth National Park is known for its wildlife, including African buffalo, Ugandan kob, hippopotamus, Nile crocodile, African bush elephant, African leopard, lion, and chimpanzee. It is home to 95 mammal species and over 500 bird species (source: Wikipedia). It is a drive-thru park where safari and boat tours are the norm. Hiking can be done in some areas of the park. Lodges, camping, and hostels are within the park. The park has an abundance of hippos, elephants, cape buffalo, kobs, waterbucks, and warthogs. Lions, hyenas, and leopards are common but not always seen on a regular basis.
