This specific package is great for family and friends who want to go away for the weekend from the busy city or for guests who are in town for a conference. This 3 days Uganda wildlife safari will explore you to the amazing home of Impala in Uganda. Along the Masaka-Mbarara Road, the Lake Mburo National Park is located around 240 kilometers from Kampala. After traveling 15 kilometers off the main road, the park is easily reachable from Kampala via the Nshara gate. With rolling hills, savanna grassland, rocky outcrops, valleys, acacia trees, wetlands, and lakes, the park has an area of around 260 square kilometers. Many compare Tanzania’s Serengeti plains to Lake Mburo National Park. Even though it is the country’s smallest national park, Lake Mburo offers a unique scenery and amazing biodiversity. Inside the park, fourteen lakes can be found, and because they are all bordered by vast marshes, more than 300 kinds of birds can flourish there.

As a regulated hunting area that was later converted to a game reserve in 1963, Lake Mburo National Park was first declared in 1933. The Banyankore pastoralists, also called Bahima, were the predominant inhabitants of the region. Until the Obote administration designated the area as a national park in 1983, the Bahima continued to herd their cattle and other livestock within the reserve. In part, the decision to designate Lake Mburo Reserve as a National Park served to retaliate against the Banyankore, who were thought to be helping the anti-Obote insurgents.

The park’s main draw is Lake Mburo. Two brothers (Kigarama and Mburo), according to local lore, once called a wide valley in the park home. In a dream, Kigarama saw a massive flood engulfing the valley. He forewarned his brother that they should leave the valley and head for the hills. Since his brother (Mburo) disregarded his advice, Kigarama fled the valley for the highlands. In accordance with Kigarama’s prophecy, a massive flood inundated the valley, drowning his brother. A sizable amount of water that is now known as Lake Mburo was left behind by the flood.

3 Days Lake Mburo Wildlife Safari, A number of antelope species can be found at Lake Mburo National Park. Because there are fewer predators in the park, they flourish there. Together with these animals, tourists can expect to witness zebras, hippos, crocodiles, warthogs, bush pigs, hyenas, waterbucks, Eland, Topis, reedbucks, sitatunga, vervet monkeys, side-striped jackals, white-tailed mongoose, otters, baboons, and an incredible variety of birds. The finest park to see leopards is Lake Mburo. Bird watching, boat tours, cycling, game drives, horseback riding, nature hikes, quad biking, and fishing are the park’s principal pursuits. Speaking of fishing, Lake Mburo National Park is among Uganda’s top destinations for sport fishing. Six different fish species, including the more popular lung fish and tilapia, may be found in Lake Mburo.

Itinary in details

After breakfast, our driver/guide will pick you up from your hotel or Entebbe international airport and take you on a quick city tour of Kampala. After the city tour, you’ll begin the 4-hour drive to the southern portion of Uganda, where Lake Mburo National Park is located. The well-paved route winds past a number of papyrus marshes, rain forests, and farms where the long-horned Ankole cattle are raised. We’ll eat lunch in Mbarara town. You will be driven to your hotel after arriving at the park so you may check in and be refreshed. You will go on your first game drive with the driver after checking in and relaxing to see giraffes, buffaloes, bush babies, zebras, elands, antelopes, and many other park creatures along the Kigambira loop track. This could occur in the late afternoon or early evening.

Dinner and overnight will be at Mantana Tented Camp (Budget), Rwakobo Rock (Mid-range) or Mihingo lodge (Luxury).

Get up early enough to have your tea as you prepare for an early morning game drive along the Kazuma circuit. Superb views of the park, including its five lakes and rolling hills, may be had from the Kazuma route. The game drive will entail traveling into the park’s more remote areas in search of Zebras, Eland, water and bush bucks, warthogs, impalas, Klipspringer, and other mammal sightings. You will be able to see nocturnal animals and predators like hyenas, leopards, and jackals on this early morning game drive.

You will return to your lodge for lunch, beverages, and relaxation following the morning wildlife drive. The Driver will take you on a boat excursion in the late afternoon not far from Lake Mburo’s shoreline. The African fin foot, African grey hornbill, Brown Parrot, Common Scimitar bill, Crested Francolin, fish eagles, herons, Nubian Woodpecker, papyrus bush strike, pelicans, shoe bill stork, weaver birds, white winged warbler, and Yellow breasted Apalis are just a few of the numerous birds that birders will be able to see on the lake’s shores.

Dinner and lodging will be at Eagles Nest (budget), Rwakobo Rock (mid-range), or Mihingo lodge (Luxury).

Your time at Lake Mburo National Park will come to an end today. Get yourself ready for another thrilling encounter with the park’s wildlife by getting up early and eating breakfast. Choosing the activity to engage in is up to you. You can go on a horseback safari, a quad bike safari, a strolling safari, a fishing safari, a birding safari, or any other of these activities. The only park in which one can go on a walking, mountain bike, quad, or horseback safari is Lake Mburo.

The salt lick area is the ideal location for a led nature walk. Zebras, Impalas, and other park animals come here to lick salt. Visitors to the 3 Days Lake Mburo Safari in Uganda can observe park animals visiting the salt mine from a covert wooden platform that has been built. If the nature walk is not your thing, you may still visit and explore the park on horseback, a quad bike, or a mountain bike. The animals in the park are less wary when there are horses around, so you can get very near to them on the equestrian safari. A game ranger who is familiar with the animals oversees all of these activities. You’ll need your own fishing gear if you decide to go sport fishing at the Mazinga landing location. The Uganda Wildlife Authority must be contacted to obtain a fishing license.

A rewarding cultural experience is available by choosing the village stroll that leads up to the Enyemembwa center. Here, you’ll run into the neighborhood Banyankore herders and their distinctive Ankole cows with long horns. Most of the Banyankore’s traditions and rituals are centered on their livestock because they are cattle keepers. You can travel to one of the households to see how a cow is milked or go grazing in the savanna.

You will be brought back to the hotel for lunch following your final day of park exploration before beginning the journey to Kampala or the Entebbe airport. At the equator crossing, there will be a photo opportunity where you can stand in various hemispheres of the world. The driver may also choose to make a stop at the Mpigi Royal Drum Manufacturers, where the substantial ceremonial drums used by the Kingdom of Buganda are created, if time permits.
