Steven Nyadru, the tourism assistant warden for Queen Elizabeth national park, says that they decided to start this product out of research and close monitoring of these animals.

“In range line management, we do close monitoring of animals, especially the collared ones. Though we collar them to monitor movements not to go into the villages, we turned this into a lion experiential. We want visitors to have higher chances of seeing the cats because many people have been saying that in Queen there are no lions which is not true,” he explained.

According to Nyadru, this activity goes outside the normal game drives which are not guided, to having a proper location of their animals using the collar through radio stellate and locate where they are, and it requires going off the truck.

Daniel Tury’omwe, a tour guide in Queen Elizabeth Park, says that the vegetation in this park, favors the existence of both predator and prey, therefore whatever is needed for full experiential tourism is available.

Tury’omwe adds that the activity was inspired by the need to keep a close eye on the cats, and checking on their health by the researchers after an outbreak of a virus infection which claimed many of them in neighboring Tanzania.

He says that “we want the visitors who come to pay the extra 10 dollars, for this product when we are sure that they will have the real experience with these animals. This money is then used to compensate people whose property would have been destroyed by the animals from the park”
