Ishasha Wilderness Camp offers quality 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. The camp is next to the Ntungwe River, nestled under shady trees. Each of the ten spacious canvas rooms is comfortably furnished and boasts a large verandah. The en-suite bathroom and dressing area have running water for hand-basins and hot ‘bush’ showers, plus a flushing ‘eco-friendly’ toilet. A central lounge and dining area, under a cool thatched roof, provides a comfortable environment for meals and to relax in during the heat of the day. Under the trees, next to the river, we often serve meals ‘al fresco’ and there is an evening ‘fireplace’ for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experience. One of the game viewing highlights is the possible sighting of the lions of this area, often found resting in the branches of large fig trees.
