2 Day Lake Mburo tour
The 2 Day Lake Mburo tour presents Lake Mburo National Park which is located between Masaka and Mbarara, is the nearest park from Kampala city of Uganda Africa, it harbours several species not observed elsewhere in Uganda. It is the only place in Uganda to support a population of impala (from which Kampala city derives its name), and only one of the three protected areas countrywide where Burchell’s zebra occurs, the other two being the far less accessible Kidepo and Pian-Upe.
Other antelopes easily seen are topi, bush buck, common duiker, oribi, Defassa waterbuck and Bofor reedbuck, while the lake and lush fringing vegetation support healthy populations of buffalo, warthog, bush-pig and hippopotamus. Large herds of the majestic eland keep roaming the park. The sitatunga confines itself to the swampy areas of the park. Only two diurnal primates occur in Lake Mburo: the vervet monkey and olive baboon. Nocturnal calls of the spotted hyena can be heard through the night. Leopard, side-striped jackal and various smaller predators are also present, most visibly the white-tailed mongoose and three otter species resident in the lakes.
