Lake Mburo is the only park in Uganda with an entire lake from which it derives its name. This is a very special park; every part of it is alive with variety, interest and color.
Renowned for its impressive biodiversity, Lake Mburo National Park shelters almost 70 mammal species and over 300 avian species in its forests, swamps and grasslands. Crocodiles, hippos and a myriad of waterbirds are found in and around the five lakes, of which Lake Mburo is the largest. Several species of mammals are resident including Zebras, Impalas, Elands, Topi and Buffaloes. Giraffe were also re-introduced in 2016 and both Zebra and Giraffe are not found in the Queen Elizabeth National Park.
The park contains an extensive area of wetland and its sculptured landscape with rolling grassy hills and idyllic lakeshores has a varied mosaic of habitats: forest galleries, rich acacia tree valleys, seasonal and permanent swamps which all support a wealth of wildlife. The park is only 370sq km and the smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks.
