Lion Research Trips

lion research

Early start (around 6:15am), get a cup of coffee, hop into one of Adventure Consults’ jeeps at the crack of dawn and head out in the savannahs in search of lions. Your guides on this bespoke adventure are members of a local predator research team that has been doing carnivores research at at Murchison Falls National Park or Queen Elizabeth National Park for over 10 years.

You will become a researcher for a day, as you learn to use telemetry to find the different lion prides who roam the savannah of Queen Elizabeth. We can confidently state there is no better way to find and photograph lions in all of Uganda. Given the fact that one lion in each pride is collared as part of the research project, you can expect to see multiple prides during this half-day trip. Due to the off-road nature of the adventure (all other vehicles must stay on the allocated game routes and are not allowed off-road), you are assured of close encounters with other wildlife as well. During the drive, the guides and researchers will discuss human-animal conflict in communities around the park, veterinary issues within the park, and lion family dynamics as part of a very in-depth game drive
