2 Days Lake Mburo Safari – SAFARI OVERVIEW

2 Days Lake Mburo Safari

Our 2 days Lake Mburo Safari is a 1 night/2 days safari to Lake Mburo National Park featuring a boat cruise on Lake Mburo and a game walking safari in this Uganda’s smallest but beautiful savannah park. This 2 days Lake Mburo Safari trip has been designed to take you away from the hustle and bustle of Kampala City into a serene place that is only 4 hours away from Kampala. Lake Mburo National Park harbors several wildlife species not observed elsewhere in Uganda. It is the only place in Uganda that supports a population of Impala, after which Kampala is named.

Lake Mburo Park is also where you will see thousands of Burchell’s Zebras and it is the best place to see large herds of Common elands (African’s largest Antelopes). Other mammals in the park include Rothschild’s giraffes, Topis, Defassa waterbucks, Bushbucks, Common duikers, Bohor reedbucks, Oribis, Sitatunga, Klipspringer, Hippos and Crocodiles.  Hyena and Jackals are some of the predators that are present. This 2 days Lake Mburo Safari starts and ends in Kampala.
