Where Two Worlds Collide

Grasslands meeting the savannah at Pelican Point

Pelican Point lies a few kilometres east of the town of Katwe near Queen Elizabeth National Park. The track from the main road to the point is barely visible as it meanders through savannah grasslands dotted with candelabra trees and leads to an escarpment overlooking the dense lush green Kitabule palm forest and Lake Edward.  From this vantage point you can see the collision of two worlds, the savannah grasslands and the rainforest.  You can hear the chorus of birds from down below while thousands of butterflies flutter above the tall golden yellow grass all around you.  It is a sight to behold and best of all is the solitude of the place.  A perfect spot to take out a picnic lunch and enjoy the view and serenity of the great African wilderness.
