Lake Mburo National Park is situated in Mbarara District. It’s about 3.5 hours drive from Kampala. Lying in the one part of the Uganda covered in extensive acacia woodland, Mburo has markedly different fauna to other parks and reserves. Lake Mburo is the best in the country to see the gigantic land antelope, as well as zebra, topi, impala and several acacia associated birds. The five lakes within the park attract hippos, crocodiles and variety of water birds, while fringing swamps hide secretive papyrus specialists such as the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus Gonalek. Mburo is the closest park to Kampala and offers a refreshing stopover when traveling or from the western parks and reserves.
