Lake Mburo National Park!

Written on: January 20, 2016   |   I visited in August 2015 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 warthogs, hippo, buffalo, bushbuck, defassa waterbuck, eland and topi. These are all plentiful. There are also baboons, monkeys and are many birds. A night game drive can yield hyena, leopard and other nocturnal species.

As there are no lions, it is possible to do a walking safari anywhere in the park, which is a nice experience.

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
