The easiest route to the park is from Kampala, through Mbarara, and is about a six to seven hour drive.

It's also possible to drive from Kigali, Rwanda, with the drive being slightly shorter than it is from Kampala, the capital of Uganda.

Queen Elizabeth's proximity to Bwindi, Mgahinga and Kibale parks make it easy to see visit several parks in one Uganda safari.

There are daily flights from Entebbe to Kasese, Uganda, which is located about an hour outside of the park. The flight is around two hours in duration.
