Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Cc - "Ishasha Wilderness Camp offers luxury bush accommodation in the unspoilt, remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, famous for its tree climbing lions. It’s an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness."

About

Set next to the Ntungwe River, each of the camp’s ten spacious canvas tented rooms has a private verandah overlooking the river. Comfortably furnished with large mosquito-netted beds, all rooms are en suite with hot ‘bush’ showers, running water for hand basins and a flushing ‘eco-friendly’ toilet.

 

The thatched central lounge and dining area provide a comfortable setting for meals and relaxation, although we often serve meals ‘al fresco’ next to the river. In the evening, the outdoor fireplace is the perfect place for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experiences.

 

Being within the park the wildlife is free to also pass through the camp and elephants can be seen bathing in the river, buffalo enjoy grazing and resident troops of Black-and-White Colobus and vervet monkeys are frequently viewed. If you are lucky, George, the lone hippo, can also be seen beside the camp. Our attentive security staff are always on hand to escort and assist you should you feel the wildlife is too close! Bush breakfasts and sundowners within the park complete the ‘bush’ experience offered at Ishasha Wilderness Camp.

Conservation Story

Ishasha Community Project has been set up conserve the bio-diversity of the area by reducing threats to the eco-system through increased economic opportunities. Locally made handi-crafts are available for purchase, and village walks are offered to guests to interact with the communities of the area and view the UCF “elephant trench” designed to reduce crop raiding in the agricultural areas on the fringes of the National Park. As the camp is within the National Park, we have designed it to be as low impact as possible with low usage of water, power and other resources. Solar power is used for lighting with power points limited to a central area allocated for recharging cameras and videos.
