2016 March - Uganda (Ishasha)

Forth stop in Uganda was the southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park (Ishasha) in the West of Uganda. The Ushasha region is the home of the famous Tree Climbing Lions. After arriving late morning we had lunch and headed out to look for these sometimes illusive animals. Word was that they had not been seen for several days and after several hours we had seen very little other than a mongoose and a few bird species including a rather nice Wood Sandpiper.

Second day we headed out with an early start but still no Lions. Back to camp and we heard word that they had been spotted so we quickly headed back out and I have to say that it was one of the best lion experiences. They did their usual lazing around but the tree added quite a lot to the experience and with quiet a few cubs in the group it was another very special experience.
