  • Charming & beautiful spot

    A charming lodge with a beautiful setting. It’s set in a beautiful, lush area with plenty of animals to view close by on the game drives. It’s famous for the tree climbing lions which we didn’t see yet weren’t disappointed as we saw so much in the one day we spent there. The sundowners & bush breakfast were are a really nice touch. review

Ishasha Wilderness Camp impact highlights

As a tourism stakeholder Ishasha Lodge believes in low impact tourism to conserve Uganda’s wildlife and heritage for future generations to enjoy. With the understanding and shared passion for biodiversity, their active Responsible Tourism Policy supported by the Future Generations Trust consciously and actively aims to protect the surrounding communities and wildlife areas in which they operate daily. One of the community projects supported by the Future Generations Trust is the Ishasha Community Uplift Group which was initiated to provide help to the local agricultural communities around the camp who live on the fringes of Queen Elizabeth National Park and fight a continual battle between growing their crops and the game incursions which raid them as an easy source of food.
