Lake Mburo National Park Uganda is truly a special place. Every single part of it is alive with variety, interest and color.
It is possible to walk around Lake Mburo National Park accompanied by a ranger, rather than having to tour in a vehicle, and it is quite possible to get close to Zebras, Warthogs and Impala, Rothschild giraffe, elands, topi and Buffaloes, Water bucks, Reed bucks, hippos. Leopards are present but they are rare.
The landscape is of open plains, acacia grasslands and marshes. Around the lake itself is thicker riverine woodland while much of the rest of the park acacia woodland. The bird population comprises of the rare shoebill, harrier hawk, green pigeon, double toothed barbet, crested crane, saddle bill storks.
