Queen Elizabeth National Park Game drive and Launch cruiseAn early morning game drive in the Kasenyi Plains. The Kasenyi plains are on the western shores of the adjacent stunning Lake George, just near to the area where the Kazinga Channel confluences with this lake. This area is also known as the Mweya or the Kasenyi Sector as a dissimilarity from the renowned Ishasha Sector found in the southwestern region of the park. The region around Kasenyi is actually an open savannah, and it is swarmed with various wild animals with the Uganda Kob being the dominant animals. Actually this place is the major breeding area for the Uganda Kobs within this park. For that reason, Lions are commonly seen here during the various game drives as they are drawn by the large Kobs population which is their main prey in this area. In the afternoon we shall enjoy the day with a boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel which adjoins the Lakes Edward and George. Dinner and overnight as above. Meal Plan: FB
