Few road trips are as wonderful to have as that from Kampala to Uganda's western parts - to Fort Portal or to Kasese to the Congo border or to Kabale to the Rwandan border. The lush greenery all along the road, the winding roads up hills with rolling, green forests and dotted blue lakes below, is spectacle for the eyes and the mind very few places on Earth can offer.
Aside from the very well known and frequently visited Queen Elizabeth National Park, South Western Uganda has some of the most breathtaking and most unforgettable wildlife reserves: Ruwenzori National Park, Kibale National Park and Game Reserve, Katonga Game Reserve, Kigezi Game Reserve, Lake Mburo National Park and Bwindi National Park - all these within short distances of each other. Mweya is within Queen Elizabeth National Park and Mweya is the most visited part of the park. Not far from Mweya, are Lakes Edward and George.
In Mweya and the whole of Queen Elizabeth National Park, you will certainly see elephants, hippos, mongooses, a variety of birds, Ugandan kobs and the astounding flora and fauna that covers the area; and if you are lucky, you will be able to see lions, chimpanzees and leopards. The most striking thing at Mweya, is the Katwe Bay of Lake Edward. The view of the bay is most unforgettable.
