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. The main attractions are the plains animals such as zebra, buffalo, impala, topis and elands. Other more elusive residents include leopard, aardvark, pangolin and porcupine, hippos and plenty of crocodiles are also quite alluring. However it is the wetlands that attract some of the rarer animals, such as the shy sitatunga antelope.

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.
