Lake Mburo Holidays

The flat river valleys of Lake Mburo National Park feature dense thickets of vegetation, offering an attractive environment for wildlife viewing. There are five lakes in the vicinity, Lake Mburo being the largest on offer, but all are a big draw to the surrounding wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for leopard, buffalo, and hyena, along with hippos and crocodiles along the water's edge. Considered a birdwatching haven, there are also over 300 bird species to spot.

The birding is excellent with some 315 species recorded, drawn both by the water and the acacia savannahs. These include Uganda's national bird; the crested crane, the rare shoebill stork, marabou stork and bronze-tailed starling, bee eaters and such exotic birds as the blue-naped coucal and the Nubian woodpecker.

Holidays to Lake Mburo provide the ideal stop over destination thanks to its situation between Kampala and the various national parks of Uganda's western border. While the western border parks boast their own unique wildlife, no less the mountain gorillas of Bwindi and the tree climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth, Lake Mburo's offering is not to be ignored, as the only park in Uganda to see impala and one of only three areas to glimpse Burchell's zebra.
