Lion tracking is more of a research


Lion research tracking is an adventure exciting activity that is only done in Queen Elizabeth National Park. You drive off road in search for the tree climbing lions (Ishasha) or leopards (north). To protect the wildlife, only a limited number of people are allowed to do the tracking, to not disturb the wildlife.

The lion research tracking activity in Uganda is operated by the Uganda Carnivore Project, working in collaboration with the Uganda Wildlife Authority to monitor and study the remaining lion populations in the national parks. The project also focuses on the research and conservation of other carnivores, including leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and more. By participating in the lion research tracking activity, a maximum of four travelers have the unique opportunity to join the researchers from the Uganda Carnivore Project and get involved in this remarkable experience.

The lion research tracking experience provides travelers with a close encounter with these majestic and beautiful creatures in their natural habitat. It allows for a deeper understanding of their behavior, movement patterns, and conservation efforts. Participants will have the advantage of observing and photographing the king of the jungle up close, capturing clear photos and videos during the tracking activity that can last for approximately one to three hours, depending on the tracking process.

This immersive experience not only offers the thrill of encountering lions and leopards in the wild but also contributes to the ongoing research and conservation efforts to protect these iconic carnivores. It is an opportunity for travelers to learn, appreciate, and connect with these magnificent creatures while actively supporting their conservation.

Joining the lion research tracking activity with the Uganda Carnivore Project promises an unforgettable adventure that combines wildlife observation, education, and the chance to make a positive impact on lion conservation in Uganda’s national parks.
