Lake Mburo National Park Wildlife Safari

April 29

Lake Mburo safari takes you to Uganda’s smallest savanna park for an amazing encounter with some of Africa’s famous wildlife. This particular package is excellent for family and friends who want to spend a weekend away from the noisy capital or from visitors who have come for a conference in Entebbe/Kampala. Lake Mburo National Park is found about 240 km away from Kampala, along the Masaka – Mbarara Road. When coming from Kampala, the park can easily be accessed through the Nshara gate after driving 15 kilometers away from the main road.

3 Days Lake MburoLake Mburo National Park covers an area of about 260 square kilometers consisting of rolling hills, savanna grassland, rocky outcrops, valleys, acacia woodlands, swamps and lakes. Lake Mburo National park is thought to be an extension of Tanzania’s Serengeti plains. Though the smallest national park in Uganda, Lake Mburo has incredible biodiversity and landscape that is different from other parks in Uganda. Fourteen lakes are found within the park and each is surrounded by vast wetlands allowing over 300 species of birds to thrive.

Lake Mburo is a key attraction in the park. According to the local legend, two brothers (Kigarama and Mburo) once lived in a large valley in the park. Kigarama had a dream in which he saw a great flood filling the valley. He warned his brother that they needed to move away from the valley and into the hills. Kigarama left the valley for the hills while his brother (Mburo) ignored his advice. Kigarama’s dream came to pass and a great flood filled up the valley drowning his brother. The flood left behind a large water body which is now known as Lake Mburo.

3 days Lake Mburo National Park Safari Lake Mburo National Park is home to various species of antelopes we will find out later. They thrive in the park because there are less predators. Tourists should also prepare to see hippos, crocodiles, warthogs, bush pigs, hyenas, waterbucks, Eland, Topis, reedbucks, sitatunga, zebras, vervet monkeys, side-striped jackals, white-tailed mongoose, otters, baboons and an amazing collection of birds. Lake Mburo is the best park for spotting leopards. The main activities in the park are birding, boat cruise, cycling, game drives, horse riding, nature walks, quad biking and fishing. Talking about fishing, Lake Mburo National Park is one of the best places for sport fishing in Uganda. Lake Mburo is home to 6 species of fish including the more common Tilapia and lung fish.
