Ishasha Wilderness Camp


Remote & rustic retreat in Queen Elizabeth National Park

Ishasha Wilderness Camp is set in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the banks of the Ntungwe River. This is the remote southern part of the park, ideal for those who want to get into the heart of the African bush. And being the only upmarket accommodation in the region, the camp really does offer an exclusive and intimate retreat. There is a swimming pool that looks out onto the river with deck chairs to catch a tan.

Accommodation consists of ten spacious East African tents which look out onto the river with wonderful views of the animals coming to drink. Each tent has its own private en suite bathroom and dressing area, as well as a “bush” shower and toilet. The entire lodge has been designed in an eco-friendly manner with as little impact on the environment as possible. There is a lounge for kicking back during the day and sample the top-class cuisine in the dining area before quenching your thirst at the bar. You can eat outdoors (and even under the stars) alongside the river and there is a roaring fire each evening as guests trade stories of their wild experiences! 

Ishasha Wilderness Camp really is on the road less travelled but the rewards are immeasurable! Very few visitors and no big tour buses mean you have this pristine wilderness all to yourself. Well not entirely to yourself. There are the the famous tree climbing lions, which you may see with a bit of luck, as well as buffalo, elephants, the native kob, topi and other species of antelope. Enjoy game drives and bush walks with your expert guide and you can even spot wildlife from your armchair as elephants wander through camp and animals come to drink from the Ntungwe River. This is what wildest Africa is all about!
