Lake Mburo National Park

This 3 day Uganda safari begins and ends in Kampala, Uganda and if you are on a budget or short on time, this wildlife safari to Lake Mburo National Park is a winner. The park is situated about 30 km (19 miles), by road, east of Mbarara, the largest city in the sub-region and it’s a 3 to 4 hours drive (240 km) from Kampala, Uganda’s capital and largest city.

From Kampala or Entebbe, we travel through the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda’s vibrant capital city, before beginning our journey southwest. Along the way, we visit local markets including a drum market. When we reach the Equator, we stop to take photos and test which way water drains from a bath here.

After lunch at the Equator, we continue our journey to Lake Mburo. In the afternoon we enter the Lake Mburo National Park, known for its plains game and large Hippo population.

On Day two we spend time in Lake Mburo National Park on morning and afternoon game drives. Your guides point out the array of animals and plants found in this diverse Ugandan game reserve as you explore.

Wildlife includes Antelopes, Uganda Kob, Buffaloes, Zebra, Baboons, Impala, Eland, Buffalo, Oribi, Defassa Waterbuck, Leopard, Hippo, Hyena, Topi, and Reedbuck, and more. Over 350 bird species have also been recorded in this compact national park.

In the afternoon we take a boat cruise on the park’s main lake – Mburo. The cruise will reward you with sights of different wildlife as they come to drink and soak in the lake to cool off! Hippos and big Crocodiles are common sights too as well as lots of birds.

On day three, we enjoy a cup of tea/ coffee or hot chocolate then proceed for any one of the many activities available in the park. These include cycling or biking or a nature walk. Later we have lunch along the way either in Masaka or at the Uganda Equator as we transfer to Kampala. Alternatively, a transfer to Entebbe can be arranged for later in the day.
