Lake Mburo National Park

About 200km from Kampala, Lake Mburo National Park is convenient for visitors who would like to experience wildlife at the shortest distance possible. It allows for closer viewing and exceptional photographs.

At 260 sq. km, it is Uganda’s smallest national park, but one of the most interesting parks. The sigh of galloping Impalas in full flight can take your breath away. You can cruise the lake for a spot of fishing or simply admire the shoreline which at certain hours teems wildlife.

The park is known for its abundance of zebras, impalas, buffalo and over 300 bird species. Zebras are in abundance hence the expression “Home of Zebras”. They relish it by prancing and preening themselves in front of bored buffaloes who couldn’t care less.
You will find quite a number of wild animals around Lake Mburo, including bushbucks, elands and warthogs that have found Lake Mburo entirely to their liking but you won’t miss herds of buffaloes roaming around the park. The park is a well-developed Acacia woodland harbouring over 320 species including; Red-necked spurfowl, African Wattled Plover, Flapper larks, Rufous-chested swallow, Ruppel’s long-tailed starling, sacred ibis and southern red Bishop among others.

Lake Mburo National Park

There are designated campsites are campers, and lodges perched high on a cliff that overlooks the park to give visitors a unique view.

Within the surrounding communities of craftsmen and craftswomen, you will be able to find a keepsake to remind you of lake Mburo’s charms. You can also pop in at the Ankole Culture centre in Mbarara for a cultural experience.
