Lake Mburo holidays

Lake Mburo National Park is a geographical extension of the Tanzanian plains and is home to a vast population of zebras. It is the only park in Uganda with an impala population, the animal after which Kampala derives its name, and is the best place to spot African fin foots. The park’s savanna terrain is broken by scattered acacia trees and includes five lakes, with the largest being Lake Mburo, while plains wildlife includes impalas, zebras elands, reedbucks, klipspringers and topis. With its forest ringed lake shores set among rolling hills, the park is said to be reminiscent of Lake Naivasha in the Kenyan Rift Valley. The park is a unique destination in Uganda, being the only place where it’s possible to take ranger-led walking safaris, while boat cruises on Lake Mburo itself offer the opportunity to observe hippos and other wildlife along the water’s edge.
