Queen Elizabeth NP

Home to a truly bewildering range of biodiversity, characterized by an array of ecosystems—grasslands, woodlands, tropical forests, and both freshwater and saline lakes

An additional focal point within the park is the Kyambura Gorge, home to a singular family of 29 chimpanzees. This troop is especially intriguing due to its isolation, brought upon by factors such as deforestation and community intrusion in the Albertine Rift. These circumstances have limited their territory, resulting in increased human-chimpanzee conflicts that underscore the delicate balance of the ecosystem.

Set within the expansive terrain of the African rift valleys, Queen Elizabeth National Park offers a geological and topographical narrative reflective of Earth’s dynamic history. The park and its surrounding areas have been inhabited by indigenous communities whose lives are inextricably linked with the land. However, these communities currently face substantial socio-economic challenges, which have resulted in human-wildlife conflicts that imperil the ecosystem’s stability.
