Queen Elizabeth national park is the second biggest national park after Murchison Falls national park with an approximate of 1978KM squared. Considered to be having over 90 mammal species and 600 bird species.

Crowned the “Medley of Wonders” Queen Elizabeth national park ranks as the most famous national park on the African continent and the only Man and Biosphere savannah reserve in Uganda. The many wonders ranging from the different vegetations zones that include tropical forests of Kyambura Gorge and Maramagambo forest, to the explosive craters and the Salt Lake craters of Katwe and Bunyambaka adjacent to the two fresh water lakes of George and Edward joined by the natural channel the Kazinga channel are crowned by the climbing lions.

The park’s location and its nature of man and biosphere makes it prone to illegal activities that involves poaching the wildlife for their precious parts and for meat and that is where Jacob’s ordeal starts.


Jacob the troubled climbing lion. He is one of the grown up three male lions in the Ishasha sector known for climbing lions in queen Elizabeth national park and a part of Tibu and Taro the brothers who are always cited together relaxing in the fig trees.

Together with other members in the pride Jacob kept his role of patrolling their territory and happened to be the victim of the poachers’ snares that ware laid to trap. This did not spare his leg and has since caused pain to him and the entire pride for more than a year now. His movement ability is impaired since he walks short distances due to the pain inflicted on the leg, climbing strength is limited to the shorter big trees to avoid the much struggle of climbing higher trees and hunting energies were all affected by the injury on its hind leg losing the whole paw this makes him survive on the kill made by the pride members which he has to be following. During hunting times.

He loved to keep the pride together and the wound on the leg that contributed to the loss of the whole paw is one effect to Jacob’s suffering in the jungle.

Thanks to the Uganda Conservation foundation. They put incomparable efforts in conserving the wildlife and the welfare of the wildlife rangers in the different parks in Uganda. They believe that when ranger patrols and veterinary teams can access hard-to-reach areas and treat wounded animals, wildlife populations stand the best chance of growth, this is seen on how periodically they are working on treating Jacob’s wound with the help of the Uganda Wildlife Authority which has full mandate of conserving the wildlife in Uganda.

One most important aspect is the passion the staff of Uganda conservation foundation and Uganda wildlife authority has towards helping Jacob recover from the pain and while on your safari to Queen Elizabeth national park, Ishasha sector, the element of lions climbing the trees to higher altitudes and relax in the branches during hot hours of the day will make you feel the burden the injured lion has to climb and as well matching the pace at which the pride members move the park.

How about being part of the support team in the fight against poaching and related illegal activities in the wildlife conservation areas or the work of the rangers in conserving the wildlife. Most animals are endangered and it is only through our efforts that we can conserve them for the next generations.

The Kigezi wildlife reserve with the spread of fig trees as well as the Ishasha sector known for the bigger number of fig trees and the northern sector of Queen Elizabeth with the Euphorbia trees create the best habitat for the lions to climb incomparable to any other national park.



A safari starts from the day the clients sends the first inquiry to the tour operator or a safari this means your reply (you the tour operator) might give the client ago ahead to continue asking you some questions regarding about the desirable places he or she wants to visit or to stop discussing with you.

Below are some of the factors which make or lead to a successful safari

The professionalism of the administer/ the operations manager.

In many safari companies these are the people who receive and reply to the inquires sent to the company, so his or her professionalism in replying and giving facts about the questions asked to him or her by the client also makes the safari to be successful because always clients first make their research before sending inquiries to tour operators and incase and in case you start giving wrong information to the client it might distract his or her mind most especially when the client did not receive or see what you promised him while on the safari hence professionalism of the administer is highly needed to daft a successful safari.

Time management.

This is also a key factor in making a safari to be successful. We all have it in mind that during a safari preparation we always draft the internally to follow and this itenelly always has specific time in which the activities have to be done and in case you fail to manage time a client might end up missing some activities yet he or she paid for such activities for example there are some activities which are determined by time for example gorilla trekking or even missing flights, so time management is also among the factors which leads or make the safari to be successful safari

Safari van

It is very hard while on an African safari to avoid using a car while on a safari and you all know that most African countries are in the third world with poor roads yet you have to travel long distance to access some national parks, so to make the journey smooth the tour operator has to be with good vehicles with air conditions with comfortable sits at least to make a client to enjoy his or her adventure so this also has to be put in place  most especially the 4×4 cars with a pop up to enable clients to take good shots and to enjoy game drives.

Experienced Tourist guide.

This is the main character and the tourist guide plays over 70 percent role in the all safari because the moment the client lands on the ground or makes a visit to a specific country he or she, is picked up by the tourist guide so under this the guide has to be professional, experienced, knowledgeable and incase the guide has to act has a driver he or she as to be a safe driver guide and it is also advised a guide as to be linguistic because they always meet people from every corner of the world hence a tourist guide also plays the main role in making a successful safari and that is why they are always tipped by the clients at the end of the safari.


These guys also play a key role in making safaris to be successful. It is important to note that these guys rangers spend most of their time in the bush protecting these animals from poachers and also to help clients to trace the movement of animals most especially the mountain gorillas, so this means the ranger has to be poriat, has to be with knowledge about animals because they communicate with them and incase a client is doing a wrong act which might bring any danger to the animals has to be stopped by the ranger, in other wards the ranger also has to give guidelines to the tourists in order to avoid making mistakes which might distract the all safari.

Queen Elizabeth National Park lies astride the equator in the back chop of the Rwenzori Mountains. This savannah park is approximately 1978 Kms. In the south it is bordered by the Ishasha River which is the boundary between Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC] and Uganda, and to the west is Lake Edward, which is shared by Uganda and the Democratic Republic Congo. To the north is the town of Kasese and the famous Rwenzori Mountains, sometimes referred to as “The Mountains of the Moon”. To the east is Lake George and the Kyambura game reserve, where lies the Kyambura Gorge, the famous Maramagambo natural rainforest and a mesmerizing chimpanzee experience. Its contiguous Kalenzu forest  is best for forest walks.

The park’s biome is very high boasting of 95 mammal species, 20 predators and over 611 bird species, making Queen Elizabeth National Park a birders paradise. Its vegetation varies from forests for the primates’ comfort, to swamplands, to an open savannah, where antelopes find comfort for their mating grounds and predators make it their hunting ground.  Above all, the geology of the park cannot be overlooked; the Nyamunuka Crater Lake along Katwe-Kabatoro road and the Kitagata Crater Lake to the north of Nyamunuka, Kamengo.  Not to be overlooked is the Katwe salt lake, mined using traditional means and worth seeing, as is the Bunyampaka salt works near Lake George.

The famous Kazinga Channel dissects the park and its connecting Lakes George and Edward. It’s famous boat rides offer visitors a chance to view schools of hippos and great numbers of sea gulls, cormorants and other water birds from a close range.

Ishasha sector in the south offers a unique and memorable experience to view the tree climbing lions and the numerous Topis and Uganda Kobs. Above all, the beautiful landscape is very thrilling as the park lies on the Albertine Rift Valley floor. To the south is the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest famous for the mountain gorillas.

Bwindi is a UNESCO heritage site and has 500 gorillas, more than half of the remaining gorillas in the wild and captivity.

Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest national park can easily be accessed from all major towns in Uganda. From Kampala to Bwindi it is 8 hours drive and from Kampala through Fort Portal to Queen Elizabeth NP, it is a 6 hour drive.  From Mbarara it will take you about 3 hours to the Mweya Peninsula in Queen Elizabeth and to Bwindi which can be easily accessed through Ishasha sector where you will as well drive through to see the climbing lions.

Rangeland Safaris, with their experience in the field and their well traveled guides, will deliver a truly memorable journey to Uganda,  with an itinerary that can accommodate both the Mountain gorillas of Bwindi and the climbing lions of the Queen Elizabeth…and more!

A memorable experience with our closest relatives, the chimpanzees, will require the expertise and confidence of a host company and guide, such as that Range Land Safaris provides. Uganda’s forestland, abundant with the vegetation and fruits of the chimpanzee’s main diet, is a place where these sociable black coated apes continue to make their home. Humans and chimpanzees share 98% of the genetic code. Most of the similarities between chimpanzees and human beings are consistently striking, not only in skull and skeletal structure, but also in the nervous system, the immune system, and in many behavioral and emotional aspects. As we guide you along their path on this unique adventure, you will witness the behavior these primates display in their daily life, bringing you to realize our striking similarities.

With an experienced guide alongside as you trek the chimpanzees in their natural habitat, you will hear their many high pitched calls before you see them. They are very noisy and they have about 33 different calls. If you stay with them for a Habituation Experience, you will learn about the differences in their vocalization, which includes screaming and pant hooting, as first noted by the famed researcher, Jane Goodall. Such “voices” can be head when they are happy, when they have plenty of food, when they are planning to move, when they are scared or encountering an enemy, and when a female is in estrus or preparing her nest.

Chimpanzees form an extended community of up to 100 individuals which roam the forest from morning to evening eating different fruits and hunting for colobus monkeys. They will sometimes form small socially mobile subgroups of close family members, such as brothers, sisters or mothers and daughters. “But female chimpanzees can cross to another community while male chimpanzees normally spend their entire life in the community where they were born”, explains Bosco, one of the senior Chimpanzee guides and Jane Goodall representative in Kibale. Uganda, often referred to as “The Pearl of Africa”, has over 3% of the global population of Chimpanzees, as well as other primates. The Kibale Forest ranks among the top in population. Other forests in Uganda include Budongo Forest, Kyambura Gorge, Kalinzu Forest, Semliki National Park and Bugoma Forest.

The most rewarding of chimpanzee experiences, is the extended Habituation Exercise which involves tracking from morning time de-nesting to evening nesting hours. Here you will witness the chimpanzees waking up from their beds, trek with them the entire day and watch them prepare their beds for the evening sleep. For an abbreviated yet equally rewarding experience, there is the option of the Chimpanzee Tracking Experience which gives you one hour observation to witness these amazing relatives of ours, in their very own natural habitat.

In addition to any safari plan, Range Land Safaris will organize this special Chimpanzee tracking or Chimpanzee Habituation Experience that will enrich your trip with lifetime memories.

Bwindi impenetrable national park lies in the south western Uganda. It covers 321 square kilometers shared Kanungu, Kabale and Kisoro districts. It is one of Africa’s oldest forests and has been ranked by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
The forest lies in the Albertine rift endemic area implying that it holds endemic species of creatures most of them being the endangered Mountain gorillas.
Uganda is known to many visitors as one of the beautiful countries of Africa due to its numerous wildlife and ecosystems ranging from forests of Bwindi and the plains, permanent swamps and other mosaic habitats that support a variety of wildlife.

However, the buffer zones of Bwindi impenetrable national park are surrounded by community and due to the frequent interaction between people and the Gorillas, there might be some disease outbreak which may not only be dangerous to the people but also to the endangered Mountain gorillas. This therefore, has called for public health awareness in the Bwindi area to help sensitize the communities about the conservation of the Gorillas and the health of the people around.


Many programs have been put in place to help in the health of the Gorillas however, there is a None Government organization that has closely worked with Gorilla and people’s health in the Bwindi Community, Buhoma sector.
Conservation Through Public Health [CTPH] is a non government organization on the ground ensuring the health of the people around the gorillas and that of gorillas as well. It works closely with Range Land Safaris which is a community rewarding Safari Company in Uganda.
The organization has a number of projects running in the community including coffee processing, accommodation provision that is used as an activity to boast the income of the locals. It has Gorilla doctors who Range Land Safaris recommend for your experience with the Gorillas at a small cost that help to care for the community and the gorilla health.


Conservation Through Public Health was established with its main objective is contributing to the wildlife research, sustainable conservation and development initiatives. Their vision is People, wildlife and livestock living in balance, health and in harmony. With local communities acting as stewards of their environment.
Your Gorilla experience with Range Land Safaris will closely bring you to the experience of the locals involvement in conservation of gorillas and public health.


Mountain gorillas are vegetarians and they feed on bamboos, trees and fruits. They also feed on aunts and termites. They spend most of the time on grounds but also climb up to reach for food. These gentle giants can survive without water for a long time. Asilverback can eat 30kg a day.

Most families contain 10-15 members and usually a silver back is the head of a family and decides the movement of the day. The largest habituated group in Bwindi impenetrable forest contains 26 members while Rwanda has 28 members. Conflicts among gorilla groups are not common because they are not territorial.

Mountain Gorillas are highly susceptible to human diseases including flu and colds. If you are participating in a gorilla then you need to be free of any easily contagious diseases and this is checked at the start of the trek by the Park Authorities. If they are in any doubt of your condition, they reserve the right to prevent you from continuing on the trek.

The age limit for gorilla tracking,is 15 years and the authorities are very strict on this, kindly make sure all clients and children are 15 or older in order to avoid any sad incidents like guest(s) kids being refused to track!

While gorilla and chimp tracking you will need a comfortable, hard wearing, pair of walking shoes or boots – with good tread and support. Conditions are generally muddy/slippery. There are uphill sections which may be quite steep and strenuous. It is also advisable to wear a long sleeve shirt and lightweight long trousers to protect yourself from the undergrowth, stinging nettles and biting ants.

(Tracksuit pants often get caught on bushes, thorns, etc. and jeans can get very heavy when wet). Gloves are also highly recommended – just cheap gardening gloves will do – this will prevent your hands being scratched when holding onto vegetation for support, through dense parts of the forest. Tuck your long pants into your socks/boots to avoid biting insects. Your clothes will in all likelihood get very muddy and may not recover to their original state – therefore take old clothing for the gorilla trekking. A poncho or lightweight rain jacket is useful, and a day-pack to carry your lunch, water and camera gear in. Walking sticks are made available at the start of the trek for some of the steeper and more slippery tracks and may prove, Binoculars are generally not needed for gorilla viewing, but very handy if you are a keen bird-watcher, Plenty of water – 1-2 litres per person , High energy snacks in addition to your packed lunch provided by the lodge /Camp.

A gorilla permit costs 700 USD for Non Residents, Foreign residents 500 USD and East African residents 250.0000 Uganda shillings.
