Taking Local Students to See Uganda's Wildlife!

On October 15th, we took a group of 36 students and three teachers from Hamukungu village primary and secondary schools into Queen Elizabeth National Park for a game drive. Close to 90 percent of these students had never been on a game drive into the park, even though the village in which they reside is located within park boundaries.

They saw lots of wildlife on the drive, including lion, elephant, buffalo, and kob. We also took them on a boat ride on the beautiful Kazinga Channel. The students and their families regularly suffer livestock and crop losses from the park’s wildlife such as lions and elephants. So, it’s critically important for these children to be able to see wildlife under less threatening circumstances.

Thank you so much to the Disney Conservation Fund for providing the funding for this special day!
