Travellers' Choice
A luxury, eco-friendly camp located in Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park - famous for its tree climbing lions. It is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the wilderness. 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.

My favourite part about Ishasha is that you really feel like you're on safari. Animals can walk through the camp and you can hear all the wildlife at night. The food was fantastic and the staff were so friendly. Being next to the river was so peaceful and we were lucky to see the resident hippo "Henry" swimming right past the dining area. The tented rooms were lovely and the beds were so comfortable. I would definitely come back here when I visit Uganda again, and would recommend to anyone who is visiting Uganda.

Wow, this place was something else. A luxury camp in the middle of Queen Elizabeth Park felt just like heaven. The rooms were very nicely decorated with big, comfy beds where you can see the river from. The bathroom was spacious, clean, and with all the products you could need during your stay. Even though you have to ask for water before the shower, they'll bring it in a few minutes and it's hot, plenty to have a decent shower (if you need to wash your hair, ask for 2 buckets). Breakfast was a very complete buffet, lunch, and dinner delicious. The staff was super friendly and trying to make everything in order for you to have the best time. They will coordinate one of the best sundowners I've ever had and the fire next to the river with the sounds of the hippos would be waiting for when you come back after the game drive. Having a drink next to the fire under the stars was unvelievable. The lounge area has nice sofas where you can chill, rest, read or take a nap while hearing the birds, and the best part? Sleeping as if you were in the middle of the most amazing nature's orchestra. Loved it.

I fell in love with this place the moment we arrived! The lodge is in the heart of the national park which offers you the advantage of getting up at sunrise to go on safari and see the animals before anyone else arrives. The rooms are located on the banks of the river so don’t be surprised if you hear wildlife outside your lodge in the early hours. The rooms are simple but perfect for your stay and very spacious. The staff are truly outstanding and could not do enough to make our stay a great experience. The food was outstanding! Hats off to the chef. On our final evening the lodge had secretly set up tables, chairs and even a mobile toilet for sundowners out on the savannah. The views were breathtaking and I can honestly say we were shocked beyond belief and will never forget this magical experience. We WILL be back next year for sure! Thank you

Coming from South Africa, my family has been spoilt with the highest quality 5-star Safari experiences. Ishasha Wilderness Camp exceeded many of these. It is a hidden gem and deserves all the praise it gets. With exceptional hospitality, stunning rooms overlooking the river, an ideal location close to the tree-climbing lions, this place gets my full support and praise. I hope to return many times.

Once taken to my tent, which is beautifully designed making you feel like they really want you to enjoy your stay, I went onto the veranda with a cold beer and watched the river flow by with colobus monkeys sharing the view. It's nice to escape to a good safari camp, and this one is classy while maintaining that feel of being in the middle of a game park where anything can come out of the bush at any time. Staff were all very friendly and professionally trained, with great food and drinks, going out of their way to make you feel welcome. Spent three nights, highlights being leopard, elephants, buffalo, hippos and herds of buck in the park.
