Experience Lake Mburo National Park, Uganda
Lake Mburo National Park is the only park that contains impalas and the only one in western Uganda with Burchell’s zebra and eland. At only 370 sq km, it is the smallest park compared to many East African parks but home to a surprising diversity of wildlife with 69 mammal species and 332 bird species.
A number of the park’s herbivores are rarely, if at all, found elsewhere in Uganda. Topi for instance, are only found in Queen Elizabeth National Park other than Lake Mburo. Leopards and hyenas are also present and, after years of absence, lions are once more sighted. Hippos and crocodiles live in the park’s five lakes, while the fringing swamps hide secretive wetland creatures such as the sitatunga antelope. The bird list contains more ‘swamp specials’ such as the papyrus gonolek, papyrus yellow warbler, white-winged warbler and shoebill. Acacia woodland bird species are well represented around the rest camp at Rwonyo and in the lightly wooded grassland valleys east of the park.
