Lake Mburo National Park
Lake Mburo National Park with an area of 100 sq miles (260 sq km) lies 155 miles (250 km) south of Kampala. This attractive park is often used as a half-way stop on the way to the parks of western Uganda. It consists of a series of rugged hills that overlook flat bottomed valleys. The park centers on picturesque Lake Mburo and four smaller lakes. This park is the only place in Uganda where one can see impala and zebra and contains one of the greatest concentrations of eland. Other species seen are buffalo, topi, waterbuck, crocodile, hippo, leopard, hyena, jackal and klipspringer. Due to abundant water, there is a wide variety of birdlife including the rare Shoebill Stork, Narina’s trogon and Abyssinian ground hornbill.
