I only had a half day to see the park and took a vehicle for 4 hours. I was accompanied by a KWS guide. By vehicle, this park is disappointing. The park is heavily wooded so you do not often come across wildlife. When you...More

This place is magnificent. Stunning views to Uganda and just so beautiful. You tend not to see as much game here because of the rain forest setting and we did not not see elephants on this occasion. Colubus monkies are common and there are many...More

We were there over one day and that was truly not enough. No tourists and a awesome guide who really made the day. If you also like walking and peaceful nature this place is perfect :)
