Ishasha sector is 50km from Mweya located in the south of Queen Elizabeth Park neighboring Congo border from the south of Lake Albert. The place is worthwhile both for its game viewing and its wilderness atmosphere. The lions of Ishasha habitually climb high into the acacia trees, a custom that probably developed to escape biting insects but now ingrained. Ishasha supports health numbers of buffalo, elephant, topi, Uganda kob with primates and varied birdlife including back bee-eater, double-toothed barbet, Ross's turaco, and many others. Wild Frontiers opened a luxury camp and this has made the place busier with tourists for accommodation.
