Day 1: Kampala - Lake Mburo National Park
You’ll depart early from your pick-up point for a drive to South Uganda through villages, swamps, and over the equator (very suitable point for memorable photography), into the southern hemisphere, to reach Lake Mburo National Park by late morning.
You’ll have time to relax at your lodge and enjoy the remarkable views over the grasslands while you take a relaxed lunch before setting off for a thrilling game drive through the park down to the lake edge. So, keep an eye for game herds of impalas, giraffes, Burchell’s zebras, and elands along the way.
From the lake’s shore, take a boat cruise and head out onto the water in search of the aquatics, including crocodiles and hippo pods, with a knowledgeable guide who will also be able to identify the huge range of bird life found around the lake, which includes African finfoots, black headed weaver birds, a variety of kingfishers, and the African fish eagle. On your return to dry land, you’ll head back to your lodge to watch the sunset.
Day 2: Lake Mburo National Park - Kampala
This morning you’ll meet a Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger who will take you on a walking safari through the plains of Lake Mburo National Park. You’ll have the option of walking along the banks of Lake Mburo or out onto the savanna plains and scrub of the park.
These walks are an exceptional way to view the park and get up close and personal with the animals, giving you a different perspective than game driving in a car. Don’t worry! You’re perfectly safe. In the early afternoon, you’ll be taken out of the park boundaries and drive North back over the equator to Kampala (or Entebbe), arriving by late afternoon or early evening.
A serene lake, rolling hills, and abundant wildlife make Lake Mburo a gem of a national park. Search the savanna for Burchell’s zebras, giraffes, elands, hyenas, and leopards that are all found here. Take to the water in search of crocodiles and some of the over 300 hippos living in the lake. The park is also conveniently close to Kampala.
