Simba Safari Camp, renowned for excellent hospitality, is nestled atop a hill overlooking Lake Kikorongo on the edge of Uganda’s most popular Queen Elizabeth National Park (QE), with panoramic views across the park’s extensive savannah plains teeming with wildlife as well as Lakes George and the famed Kazinga Channel. It is the closest accommodation to QE’s Kasenyi plains on the edge of Lake George, the famed mating grounds for the Uganda Kobs and thus the most preferred area for game viewing drives. It is also closest to the other areas of northern Queen Elizabeth National Park, including the Mweya Peninsula and the Kazinga Channel; well known for launch cruises, close range game-viewing as well as bird-viewing. There is also an opportunity to go for guided chimpanzees tracking in Kyambura Gorge.

In December 2008 Simba Safari Camp opened her doors in one of the most frequently visited parks in Uganda. The comfortable and low budget safari accommodation is located right on the border of Queen Elizabeth National Park and only two kilometers from the Equator.

More and more travellers are discovering this amazing safari camp with competitive prices and a fantastic location. One part is overlooking the scenic crater lakes and plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park, while on the other side the high peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains stand out against the horizon.

Simba Safari Camp has a total capacity of 70 beds including family cottages, twin rooms and dormitories. A variety of meals and drinks are served in the restaurant with an adjacent bar and sitting area. Moreover, for conservation purposes we invite our guests to plant a tree that will be nourished and carry your name into eternity…

    This is by far the greatest experience of my year so far at Simba Safari Camp. From the hospitable staffs, to the chefs that crafted our meals keeping our taste buds in check, definitely this is place I highly recommend. You can't miss a smile from Susan when she's serving you, to Agnes when she's preparing your room, Alex and Malaky were always a constant and call away from us whenever need arises.

    It was a beautiful lodge situated very close to the entrance of the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The room were well equipped with mosquito nest, clean towels (including for the pool) and a fan. The staff was dedicated to give us the best experience and the food was very good. The only point to know is there is only wifi in the restaurant. Otherwise, I had a great stay with Simba Safari Camp, many thanks!

    We stopped by here after visiting the equator for a quick lunch. We were told there was no menu to see and only chips and avocado were on offer so we ordered some snacks. The food took almost 1 hour and a half to come (for just 2 plates of chips and some avocado and fruit) and when the bill came we were horrified at the overpriced food. Even 5 star Mweya Lodge is more reasonably priced. Service was poor, horrendously overpriced and they were dishonest about there not being a menu. Would not recommend.
