The Ishasha sector is visited by all travelers all year round to enjoy the amazing tree-climbing lion trekking at Queen Elizabeth National Park. The best time to visit these tree-climbing lions is during the dry seasons of June, July, and August, as well as January and February, when little rain is expected and the roads to Ishasha are dry and not slippery in comparison to the rainy season.


During the rainy season, the roads are slippery, wet, and muddy, which makes accessing the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth difficult. Travelers might need long hours of driving to be safe. However, the greatest advantage of the rainy season is that there are fewer travelers coming to Africa for their Uganda safaris, so there are fewer crowds at accommodation facilities, and it is highly recommended for budget travelers.  


Book with Devine African Safaris in the low season. We provide discounted offers on Uganda wildlife safaris, and you won’t regret the best treatment at the end of your tree-climbing safari to the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park.


The Ishasha sector visit can be arranged together with visiting all the other interesting sectors of Queen Elizabeth National Park that supplement your trip experience in the park, such as chimpanzee tracking at the Kyambura gorge sector situated in the eastern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park; the Mweya peninsular that makes travelers view the whole Queen Elizabeth clearly; the Kazinga channel that separates Lake Edward and Lake George; and crater lakes in the park.  All these sectors in the park are fully covered by savannah and forest vegetation, hence making Queen Elizabeth an unforgettable destination for Uganda wildlife safaris.
