Ishasha Wilderness Camp is Just a tremendous wilderness experience in queen Elizabeth national park Uganda .
The ten new tents are replete with reusable eco-friendly bathroom supplies, (hot) showers, romantic bedding and upholstery,
tasteful room decor, and a fabulous view of the Ntungwe river from the bed, bath and beyond.
The night sounds at IWC are off-the-charts, with eerie critters, predators and primates all within earshot at times during the blackout.
The food and experience at the camp are also first-rate.
A morning wake-up call begins the deluge of pampering, with hot coffee and biscuits brought right to your front door.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served by gracious and knowledgeable staff, with the food and view as the real main attraction.
No other place in Uganda - with the possible exception of Apoka Lodge in Kidepo - can offer such a wonderful marriage of feral beauty and creature comforts as this place.
Neil does a great job coordinating all the desires of his guests and makes you feel like you have the power to do whatever you want, be it game drives, nature walks, sleeping, eating, or relaxing in your room.
The Ishasha sector of QENP itself is spectacular, with verdant plains and abundant wildlife in both the northern and southern sections.
We spotted a lion and lioness in the southern section resting in a fig tree, while spotting multiple elephants at three separate occasions on two drives.
The southern section is a bit worse (wetter, with more ruts) than the northern section at the moment (April 1, 2012) so take a 4WD if you're planning on driving yourself.
I'd also recommend taking the route from Mweya/Kyambura gorge rather than the route from Rukingiri, as the latter has a lot of steep terrain and uneven roads, which extend your journey. Don't miss this place!!!
