Elephant Plains is a lodge located on the most spectacular view point in the whole of Queen Elizabeth National Park. The lodge, perched 941 metres above sea level on the western escarpment of the Albertine rift in the park's north east, offers panoramic views stretching for miles over vast open grasslands to Lake George.
Nowhere else in the world can you sleep closer to the equator (N*S 0.0, 25.172) with views of the equator monument visible from all around the lodge, set in 80 acres of pristine wilderness and only 2 minutes to the park gate. Nestled next to beautiful lake Kikorongo, this is where the open plains merge into the crystal waters and see large numbers of elephants coming to drink from the water, hence the lodge's name.
A short drive to the Kasenyi plains offers an open savannah filled with various wild animals. This area has fantastic game viewing, a huge number of grassland birds and is a major breeding ground for the Ugandan Kob, which readily attracts lions and other big cats to the area. The open plains and large number of wildlife mean photographic safaris are extremely rewarding.
