Game Drives

Enjojo Lodge is bordering the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP). Taking you to Ishasha park gate will only take you 5 minutes by car.

The Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, in the remote southern end of the park, is famous for its tree-climbing lions. Other big mammals include elephants, buffalos, hippos, hyenas and leopards. Common antelope species include cob, bushbuck, water buck and topi, which can only be found in the Ishasha plains.

Whether you are using your own vehicle or the Enjojo Lodge open-roof safari Land Cruiser, Ishasha will reveal a Noah’s ark of wildlife.

In Rwenshama, see how the traditional fishermen bring their catch on shore: tilapia, lungfish, catfish …

Hippos lurking, pelicans fishing and if your timing is right, the lone elephant bull “Da Boss” will be doing his daily walk along the shoreline.
