Set on the banks of the Ntungwe River, Ishasha Wilderness Camp is an idyllic retreat for people who truly enjoy the African wilderness. The camp is in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth Park that is famous for it’s tree climbing lions.
Being within the park the wildlife is free to roam through the camp and elephants can be seen bathing in the river. Resident troops of Black-and-White Colobus and vervet monkeys are frequently viewed.
The thatched central lounge and dining area provides a cosy and relaxed space for guests. In the evening, the outdoor fireplace beside the river is the perfect place for guests to relax over sundowners and share their day’s experiences.
Each of the ten spacious framed canvas rooms, privately nestled along the riverbank, is comfortably furnished. Wake to the delicious aroma of morning coffee served on your private verandah.
