Queen’s Pavilion CTPH Telecentre

CTPH operates the Queen’s Pavilion found at the Crater Drive Gate of Queen Elizabeth National Park with a Telecentre and Visitor Information Center. It was officially opened in 2007 by His Royal Highness Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh. The CTPH Telecentre/UWA Visitor Information Centre was built with funding from the British High Commission during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) when Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the British Royal Family visited Uganda.


We work with Uganda Wildlife Authority  to test wild animals for diseases, which can spread between people, wildlife and livestock. We also train park rangers in wildlife health monitoring. Our local community volunteers play a vital role as they treat livestock and report sick wildlife in their villages to UWA, creating an early warning system for disease outbreaks between people and wildlife.
Location: It is 800 meters from the equator monument, near the Crater Drive and accessed through the northern entrance.
Open times: Queen’s Pavilion is open from 8:00am – 6:00pm
