Lake Mburo National Park, Uganda Destinations

Warthog Lake Mburo National Park Uganda

 

 Lake Mburo National Park also known as the 'Home for Zebras' is a small but beautiful park dominated by the eponymous lake. It has a good range of large game to see and 300 species of birds in the area making it ideal for bird spotting; it's probably the best place in Uganda for acacia-associated birds.

The lake its self is the largest of 5 lakes within the park and all are fringed by thick riparian forest and patches of papyrus swamp. Surrounding the lakes are rolling hills and moving away from the lake shores, the forest gives way to a mosaic of open savannah and acacia woodland that once stretched southwards to the Tanzania border and beyond.

Although elephant and lion have not been observed within the park recently, there is still a healthy population of game including numerous topi, bushbuck, oribi, duiker, Defassa waterbuck, buffalo, warthog and hippos in the lakes. Lake Mburo is also home to the only population of impala in Uganda and apart from the remote northern parks, is the only place to see Burchell's zebra and eland in Uganda.

Over 300 species of birds have been recorded within Lake Mburo and it is probably the best place in Uganda for acacia-associated birds. The permanent and seasonal wetland areas that connect the lakes are home to a number of papyrus endemic bird’s species including the papyrus gonolek, the blue-headed coucal and the white-winged and papyrus yellow warblers.
