We enjoyed a three night stay in the Buffalo Tent at Queen Elizabeth Bush Lodge . Tent overlooked a back bay of the channel and provided excellent opportunity to see and hear numerous inhabitants of the area. Elephant, cape buffalo, wart hog, and hippos were either in the bay or surrounding area.
Numerous birds including kingfishers, batis, sunbirds, goneleks, jacana, fish eagles, etc were seen right from the tent porch.
Food was excellent and service was second to none.
No bottled water available in the tents. Toliet was a bit crude but effective.
Outside shower with plenty of hot water once you and staff coordinated need. Electricity available via generator in evening.
Escort back to tent after evening meal a great idea as
hippos frequent the grounds after sundown.
Queen Elizabeth Bush Lodge has a great location
overlooking the Kazinga channel with hippos and warthogs heard at night. An
elephant also ran out right in front of our jeep on the track down to the
Aside from the excellent location, we found the food to be very good, the communal candlelit evening dining was a change which was nice.
There was no fan (or air con) and it could get warm inside during the day but we slept ok at night so it didn't really affect us to much.
