Lake Mburo national park 3 day safari

Day 1, Drive to Lake Mburo national park starting 3 day safari

We will meet you in the morning at 8:00am at your address in Kampala or Entebbe and we then drive to Lake Mburo National Park on well paved roads passing through papyrus swamps close to Lake Victoria and tracts of tropical rain forest and the rolling plains of Ankole cattle country. Lake Mburo National Park is a small park, excellent for birding, with lots of antelope and other grazers, one of the only places to easily see Impala and zebra in Uganda and the rest of Africa. Game drives offer particularly game viewing with the Parkʹs mixture of savannah, acacia woodlands, grassy valleys, rocky outcrops, swamps, lakes and rolling hills. Herds of impala (found nowhere else in Uganda), Cape buffalo and zebra, plus waterbuck and eland are amongst the variety of wildlife to be seen. The latest addition of Rothschild giraffe has made Lake Mburo a destination of choice among lovers of wildlife. On this particular 3 day safari to Lake Mburo national park be sure to see most of the game in Lake Mburo. Birders will enjoy the Parkʹs 310 recorded water and dry land bird species. In this valley we can operate night game drives and morning walks. This is the only park where you we will see Impala and Burchellʹs Zebra. It is an excellent place for walking and exploring a nearby Khopji to perhaps see Klipspringer. Game drive to the lodge for check in.
