During the past two weeks, three sad incidents happened in our national parks. One incident involved the decimation of a pride of 11 lions near Hamukungu Fishing Village in Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP). The other incident was the reported death of a French tourist working with the French Embassy in Nairobi who collapsed and died on 14th April 2018 after tracking Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the recent one when we registered the death of another lion in QENP.

Barely a week after the death of a pride of eleven lions in Hamukungu fishing viallge, another pride of 2 adult lionesses and 7 cubs has been in the place. This dispels wrong information that there are no more lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park following the death a pride of 11 last week. Uganda still has lions including tree climbing ones at Ishasha in the same park. The king of the jungle still roars in Queen Elizabeth National Park.
