2 Day Lake Mburo Wildlife Safari
This wildlife safari takes you to Lake Mburo national park, the smallest savannah park in Uganda. The drive from Kampala is relatively short (3 ½ – 4 hours’ drive) making it a perfect safari option if you have few days in the country.
The park offers excellent game viewing across the savannah plains, the animals that can be sighted in the park include zebras, topis, giraffes, buffaloes, eland warthogs, bush bucks, common duiker, oribi and other antelope species. There is only one lion resident in the park hence chances of seeing cannot be guaranteed, leopard and hyena is also present but these are mainly nocturnal animals that can be best seen on a night game drive. Crocodiles, hippos and several water bird species can be seen while on a boat cruise on Lake Mburo.
