Tree Climbing Lions Ishasha Plains Uganda Safari Destinations

 

 Located in the southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, the beautiful Ishasha Plains get few tourists which makes it all the more rewarding for a game-drive or two. The area has plenty of large game to see, including its famous tree-climbing lions, which lounge in the low boughs of the fig trees.

Ishasha Plains are famous for their tree-climbing lions, which lounge in the low boughs of the fig trees - a habit which researchers believe is due to the need to see above the long grasses in the dry season to spot their prey, and also to avoid biting insects. Other wildlife you can be able to see in this region includes buffalo, zebra, elephants, Ugandan kob and hippos in the Ishasha River.

Birdwatchers can keep an eye out for the compact weaver, black coucal and other water-birds like herons and storks near the Lake Edward marshlands, too.
