A must do when in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Our Guide was very knowledgeable about the birds, Hippos, Elephants, lizards...etc. We did a 2 hours boat trip and saw about a 100 different bird species and some game. Ask at the Kazinga Wilderness Safari Camp for a boat trip and get the best guide.

We saw all types of animals. As a bird-watcher I was especially pleased! The guide was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife.

Had the most fabulous boat trip along Kazinga River seeing breathtaking sights including a large herd of elephants heading down the bank to drink, bath and play. We sat there for a good while just watching these beautiful animals.
I’ll never tire of the sites and sounds of Africa and the Kazinga has many. Hippos of plenty, crocs, birds and not forgetting the stunning backdrop of trees & plants.
Simply beautiful ❤️

Fantastic boat safari down the Kazinga chanel. Although the range of animals wasn't too wide, seeing large quantities of hippos, elephants and buffalos coexisting together (at least while we were watching!) was a real wild-life treat. Add on a nile crocodile and a variety of exotic birds, and chanel-side human communities, and it adds up to a unique and much enjoyed Ugandan safari experience.

Such a fantastic experience- one of the highlights of our time in Uganda! Best place to see elephant families and hippos! We did this as part of our tour with Africa Tours Adventure.

Our 10-day journey was arranged through Volcanoes Safaris and this boat ride was one of our activities. We were thrilled to see crocodiles, hippopotamuses, elephants, water buffalo and a vast assortment of birds and their various abodes. Our boat driver was well-informed and able to answer our additional questions.
Although the boat ride was an exciting and beautiful thing to do all on its own, having done some pretty vigorous chimpanzee tracking earlier in the day, it also provided a moment of welcome relaxation!

Took the boat cruise around the channel and saw so much wildlife and birds. The boat gets close to the land when sightings are made so you can see very close. The guides on the boat are very knowledgeable about all the wildlife as well as the many types of birds.
well worth going!

This trip was great! Our guide was amazing and we saw lots of wildlife. The only really disturbing thing was when we saw an elephant on the shore --- he was frolicking and grazing and it was so cool. Our boat driver cut the motor to let us watch. Then two other boats came by, didn't cut the motor. The elephant clearly became agitated and I hated seeing this. They didn't cut the motor or back off when it was clear that the elephant needed space. Very sad. I hope they stop this practice
