Welcome to The Elephant Center Campsite
It is a beautiful location, living in Kikorongo community next to the park. The fresh water lakes supplying us with fish, the views of the plains and lakes in the park. Easy transport connections for the people, goods and services and the warmth of inter-cultural life of the local people speaking a dozen of languages and different cultural practices including the people from Congo.
However good the location may seem, it is a pain on the household farmers to live with wildlife in the neighborhood if your livelihood is only dependent on agriculture as a source of food and income. Considering the best solution and the need to coexist, we decided to use tourism as a pivot for our (community) coexistence with the park and also to raise awareness of the challenges we face and how we address them every day.
The Elephant Center Campsite, is a community campsite neighboring Queen Elizabeth national park, 22 km from Kasese town on Kasese-Mbarara road (Fort portal – Mbondwe road). The location makes it easy to use any kind of transport to get here and or to do your early morning or late evening game drives without any inconveniences. Please see how to get here.How to book Book now
