Lake Mburo National Park
is a decent slice of wilderness running to 260 square kilometres in south-west Uganda, containing some hilly and modestly pretty landscapes.

Wildlife viewing here can be very challenging, with heavy vegetation providing dense cover. There is a decent range of mammals, including waterbucks, buffaloes and vervet monkeys. In fact it is the only place in Uganda where you are likely to see herds of impalas, hartebeests, zebras and elands.

However the park does not contain any elephants, rhinos, cheetahs or lions, with leopards also being very elusive, which does tend to make the safari rather gentle. The park also seems to suffer from serious encroachment by local herders and their stock.

Highlights include a relatively low-key motorboat safari on the lake, which can provide good sightings of hippos, crocodiles and buffaloes in particular, as well as a good range of birds, including African fish eagles. There are also some modest opportunities for walking safari and horse-back safari.

Up until 2012 we used Lake Mburo as a place to break the long road journey between Entebbe and parks to the west such as Bwindi Forest.

But since the introduction of scheduled flights on this route, the park has become increasingly marginalised and we tend to recommend it rather sparingly.

Here in western Uganda we tend to focus more on areas such as Bwindi Forest, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale Forest and Murchison Falls.
