Sightseeing
Queen Elizabeth National Park is known for its wildlife, including African elephant, African buffalo, Ugandan kob, hippopotamus, topi, waterbuck, warthog, giant forest hog, Nile crocodile, leopard and lion. It is home to 95 mammal species and over 500 bird species.  The area around Ishasha in Rukungiri District is famous for its tree-climbing lions, whose males sport black manes. In 2020, Uganda Wildlife Authority executive director Samuel John Mwandha stated that the wildlife in park has been increasing in the last five years. Queen Elizabeth National Park together with the adjacent Virunga National Park was designated as a 'lion conservation unit' by the IUCN in 2006. The area is considered a potential lion stronghold in Central Africa, if poaching is curbed and prey species recover. The park is also famous for its volcanic features, including volcanic cones and deep craters, many with crater lakes, such as the Katwe craters, from which salt is extracted. Services in the park include a telecenter run by Conservation Through Public Health and the Uganda Wildlife Authority, neighbouring the Queen's Pavilion, park lodges, game and scenic drives, and boat launches.
