Lake Mburo offers rolling hills, acacia woodlands and rich wetlands for rewarding game drives, boat trips and birding.
June to mid-March
Lake Mburo National Park in Uganda is about 4-5 hours drive south from Kampala. It's the ideal spot to break the journey between Entebbe/Kampala and the popular mountainous rainforests of Bwindi and Mgahinga in the south-west.
Most of the park is rolling grasslands and acacia woodland. The centre-piece is Lake Mburo itself,. This is part of an extensive wetland system comprising five lakes. A boat trip on the lake is the best way to appreciate crocodile, hippo and the over 300 species of birds.
But it’s worthy of a visit in its own right. Indeed some of our guests have experienced the best game-viewing in Uganda during their stay here.
