When you hear about tree climbing lions you cannot believe that they exist in the world. Uganda is the only country where you can watch these experienced amazing mammals among the predators. Am Bruce Julius from United Kingdom, and as I was searching for the company that could give me and my family a wonderful tour package, during my search I browsed on the link for a Uganda tour operator based company Nature Adventure Africa Safaris Limited in Kampala.
This is where I found this wonderful package of a three day tree climbing lion experience. I contacted them for this package and they gave me details about the tree climbing lion plus a good itinerary which we were to use while heading to the field, I bought it at an interesting rate after reaching a consensus. I organized my family and within 4 days we booked our air tickets and we started our journey to Uganda.
On reaching Uganda, we were picked up from the airport by Moses with his Hospitable team plus an experienced driver in a 4×4 wheel super custom which had comfortable seats and we were taken at Namirembe Guest House where we spent our night since we reached in wee hours. Very early in the morning after a warm coffee, we started our journey to the west of Kampala via Masaka road to Queen Elizabeth National Park approximately 410km and this took us around 6hours.
We reached at around 12:15pm GMT, and in this process we were given two game rangers who escorted us one in front and another one behind and the reason behind this was to give us protection against these angry predators.
We started off our activity of tracing these lions and for sure it was so amazing in that. We found them in the fig trees around the Ishasha sector one of the areas of interest within the park where these lions are habituated.
If you are not keen enough you cannot see these mammals unless you have experienced guides and for our luck we had them which facilitated quick tracing of the lions. Surprisingly, we found these lions in the fig huge trees whereby we had a chance of even seeing them climbing these tree which was every ones wish and the major reason as to why we came to Uganda to witness how really lions can climb trees like monkeys.
These proved it to us!!!!!!, this amazing package cannot be got any where else other than Nature Adventure Africa Safaris Limited, indeed we had a nice experience with the tree climbing lions and this prompted me even to take some photos.
After this great activity, we traveled back to Entebbe where I slept in Airport View Hotel while preparing for our early morning flight back to my homeland, United Kingdom. Moses made it possible for me to reach the airport in time and I would like to forward my gratitude thanks to Moses and the company for the great, wonderful and irreguretable services that were rendered to us while in Uganda as we were experiencing tree climbing lions that left us nodding our heads.
