So many zebras , impala, topis, baboons, warthogs, buffalo and hippos. For lack of a better way to explain it, a very high concentration of wildlife. I have been to other national parks and game reserves and here there seemed to be wildlife at every...More

The zebras! And giraffes! And monkeys! And impalas! And birds of all kinds! And so much more amazing wildlife. I highly recommend the walking safari - William, a Lake Mburo ranger, is a wonderful guide.

A nice easy drive although I went in dry season so there was a lot of dust around. The park has well,planned dirt roads that go through the park without encroaching on the natural terrain.

Not Uganda's number one park but a unique experience with walking safari that puts you face to face with the zebra and impala (not to mistaken for Uganda Kob). Picturesque woodland Savannah with highlight of Giraffes, which you won't find in Queen Elizabeth.

The lake is special and the trip around the lake on a small boat is a must. (the small boat gets you closer to the shore and the shorebirds. We had wonderful sightings of the rare African Finfoot plus loads of other birds.

This was the last reserve we visited over 15 days. We entered the park just as thunder and lightning struck - followed by torrential rain so we saw very little. However, the next morning we took a guided walk around the edge of the park...More

Lake Mburo is not at all well known. It is easily behind Queen Elisabeth NP (tree climbing lions), Murchison Falls, and Bwindi (gorillas) in Uganda, but this park gets much less credit that it deserves. BUT, this is a good thing for you because you...More
