1 Day Lake Mburo Nature Tour

Overview

Lake Mburo national park (LMNP) is the smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks and is located in kiruhura district in the western Uganda, the park is situated about 30 kilometers by road, east of Mbarara, the largest city in the sub-region,Lake Mburo National game Park harbors several wildlife species not observed else where in Uganda.

Lake Mburo is the only park in Uganda to support a population of impala (from which Kampala city derives its name), and only one of the three protected areas countrywide where Burchell’s zebra occurs, the other two being the far less accessible Kidepo and Pian-Upe.

Other antelopes easily seen are topi, bush buck, common duiker, oribi, Defassa water buck and Bofor reed buck, while the lake and lush fringing vegetation support healthy populations of buffalo, warthog, bush-pig and hippopotamus. Large herds of the majestic eland keep roaming the park. The sitatunga confines itself to the swampy areas of the park. Only two diurnal primates occur in Lake Mburo: the vervet monkey and olive baboon. Nocturnal calls of the spotted hyena can be heard through the night.

Leopard, side-striped jackal and various smaller predators are also present, most visibly the white-tailed mongoose and three otter species resident in the lakes.Lake Mburo National Park is a home to the Ankole cattle cared for by the traditional Bahima pastoralists, magnificent herds graze peacefully alongside the wildlife. this is determined dry and wet seasons that controls animal movements.
