[masterslider alias=”ms-3″]Hippo Hill Camp is located in the Mweya region of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Situated on a quaint hill, the aptly named camp looks out upon the amazing Kabazimu and Kitako Islands in the vast Lake Edward. The lodge is a must for bird enthusiasts, with just over 600 species to spot, along with a stupendous range of mammals. Accommodation is tented, with 10 Meru safari tents under thatched roofs offered to guests. Room interiors are basic but comfortable, with a low to the ground bed and en suite. There is a canvas wall with zipper that divides the bedroom and bathroom. Once unzipped, guests are faced with reed walls, a wash hand basin, flush toilet and hot shower. Hippo Hill is ideal for anyone seeking a wilderness experience, placing guests in the midst of Uganda’s natural beauty in quaint rusticity. Guests can sit out on their small verandas, which are shielded by a large thatch roof that runs the length of the tent, and enjoy the marvellous views. The camp offers guests a bar and dining area, from which they can partake in casual game viewing of flamingos and hippo.

Environment and Attractions
This place is a must visit, since it is well built spectacularly on a hill overlooking Kibale forest and Rwenzori mountains.
Kibale National Park
The most accessible of Uganda’s major rainforests, Kibale is home to a remarkable 13 primate species, including the very localised red colobus and L’Hoest’s monkey. Kibale’s major attraction, however, is the opportunity to track habituated chimps – these delightful apes, more closely related to humans than to any other living creature, are tremendous fun to watch as they squabble and play in fruiting trees.
A network of shady forest trails provides much to delight botanists and butterfly lovers, while birders are in for a treat with 335 species recorded including the endemic Prirogrine’s ground thrush.
The elusive forest elephant, smaller and hairier than its savannah counterpart, moves seasonally into the developed part of the park, while other terrestrial mammals include buffalo, giant forest hog and a half dozen antelope species.
