Lake Mburo 3 Days Safari


Mburo National Park stands as a compact gem, conveniently located near the highway connecting
Kampala to the parks of western Uganda. It holds the distinction of being the smallest of Uganda’s
savannah national parks and is underlain by ancient Precambrian metamorphic rocks, dating back
more than 500 million years. The park boasts a rich biodiversity, housing 350 bird species and an
array of wildlife including zebras, impalas, elands, buffalos, oribi, Defassa waterbucks, leopards,
hippos, hyenas, and reedbucks.

Teaming up with 13 other lakes in the area, Lake Mburo contributes to a 50km-long wetland system
linked by a swamp. Within the park’s borders lie five of these lakes. While the region was once
covered by open savanna, it now supports a healthy population of Buffalos, Warthogs, bushpig, and
hippopotamus. The absence of elephants has allowed woodlands to flourish, interspersed with
rocky ridges and forested gorges in the western part of the park. Additionally, patches of papyrus
swamp and narrow bands of lush riparian woodland line many of the lakes, adding to the park’s
diverse ecosystem.
