Discover rich and varied wildlife and reap the benefits of strong conservation efforts in this beautiful park.
Located just over three hours from Kampala, Lake Mburo National Park is the most accessible savannah in Uganda. It has a chequered history having started as a controlled hunting area in the 1930’s and suffering dramatically from poaching and the introduction of ranches and grazing land. In recent years there has been a positive change and there is much to be celebrated in the conservation efforts. Eight giraffes were introduced to the park in 2015 and have become the first giraffes in Uganda’s western parks.
Here you will find lakes fringed with swamps which form an incredible wetland system, stretching for 50km. This, combined with acacia woodlands and stretches of savannah makes for a diverse range of wildlife. Around 350 species of birds call this park home as well as zebra, buffalo, leopard, impala and hyena.
Easily accessible and with an interesting history, Lake Mburo National Park makes a great introduction to Uganda’s wildlife.
