From the equator we moved on to visit Hamukungu fishing village one of the 11 communities within Queen Elizabeth National Park. These communities existed before the land became Kazinga National Park in 1952. The name was changed to Queen Elizabeth National Park in 1954 when the new Queen visited this part of Uganda. Hamukungu fishing village has existed in this spot since the 17th century.Arriving at the fishing village, we were quickly surrounded by curious kids.
