Lake Mburo Tour - 2 Days
Lake Mburo Tour - 2 Days
Lake Mburo National Park harbours several species not observed elsewhere in Uganda. It is the only place in Uganda to support a population of impala (from which Kampala city derives its name), and only one of the three protected areas countrywide where Burchell's zebra occurs, the other two being the far less accessible Kidepo and Pian-Upe.
Other antelopes easily seen are topi, bushbuck, common duiker, oribi, defassa waterbuck and bofor reedbuck, while the lake and lush fringing vegetation support healthy populations of buffalo, warthog, bush-pig and hippopotamus. Large herds of the majestic eland keep roaming the park. The sitatunga confines itself to the swampy areas of the park.
Only two diurnal primates occur in Lake Mburo: the vervet monkey and olive baboon. Nocturnal calls of the spotted hyena can be heard through the night. Leopard, side-striped jackal and various smaller predators are also present, most visibly the white-tailed mongoose and three otter species resident in the lakes.

Day 1: Lake Mburo National Park
Meet and greet with our local guide over breakfast, and then after we drive heading to south-western Uganda.
En route, there is a local community popular for making local drums and crafts and a fruit market. Stopover, admire and buy yourself souvenirs.
Proceed to the Equator line taken as one beautiful scenery in Africa - the pathway of the sun and take photographs.
Early afternoon, arrive in Lake Mburo for a lunch in the park grounds as you marvel at the game and birds within the park. Take a game drive in the afternoon and look out for zebras, topis, buffalo, eland, impala, water hogs, waterbucks and more.

Day 2: Lake Mburo National Park | Kampala
Rise early for breakfast before a game drive towards the Lake Mburo Rwonyo Park headquarters.
This has often been a good chance of seeing hyenas coming back to their dens, hippos walking back to the water. You will see buffalo, zebra, impala and topi and with a bit of luck maybe even a sitatunga, an antelope rarely seen living in the papyrus swamps.
After your early morning activities, return the lodge for checking out before embarking on your return journey to Kampala. On your way out of the park you will see most of the animal species occurring in Lake Mburo National Park.
We drive through a magnificent hilly country and lush cultivation on an approximately four hour journey.
We will be in Kampala in the evening before for your flight back home.
