Lake Mburo - the beautiful African Gem!

Written on: February 04, 2015   |   I visited in November 2013 Lake Mburo National Park is the smallest of Uganda’s savannah park. It is named after a Lake which lies in the park. It offers some of the best experiences of wild Uganda – recommended that you stay longer than two days. The vegetation ranges from Savannah, woodland, rock ridges, acacia, wetlands which provide different activities to the visitors. You have opportunities for nature walks, forest walks, game drives, boat safari, sport fishing, mountain biking and horse rides.

The range of bird life is a whopping 300 species – with some of the rare birds including; Crested Francolin, Emerald-spotted Wood Dove, Brown Parrot, Barefaced Go-away bird, Red necked Spur, Common Quails, Black-billed Barbet, Greenwood Hoopoe, Blue-napped Mousebird, Lilac-breasted Roller, African-grey Hornbill, Nubian Woodpecker, Trilling Cisticola, Bee-eaters and the Cheeky bronze-tailed starling, crowned crane etc. Zebras are some of the most beautiful animals you will enjoy in this park – they are always ready for photo sessions. Lake Mburo is also home to a lonely Lion – consider yourself lucky to find see it. More large mammals that are easier to see include; Leopards, Hyenas, Uganda Kobs, Impala (only found here in Uganda), Eland, Crocodiles, Hippos and Buffaloes. This ‘little’ park is a beautiful gem.

Activities include one can do include; Bird Watching, Game drives, Boat Safari, Nature Hikes, Forest Walks, Squad biking, Horseback Safaris, Sport fishing, Community walks and Cultural experiences.

Lake Mburo National Park is well-located between Entebbe and Bwindi and makes a good stop to avoid a really long drive. The park has no lions or elephants so it is perhaps not as exciting in a large animal aspect. It does have giraffes, Burchell's zebra and impala, which are not seen in many places in Uganda.

Other species that are resident here include warthog... read more

While in Lake Mburo National Park, try out horseback game viewing! it is extremely beautiful. It can be a ride or a walk on a horse depending on one’s riding experience, either way it is the most unique way to view game with greater chances of getting really up-close with the animals. For experienced riders, the ride takes about 4 - 5 hours in the Warukiri plain o... read more
