About Lake Mburo National Park
Lake Mburo National Park is among the smallest of Uganda national parks. extending over 260km² with 20% of the surface area as wetlands. The major of these is Lake Mburo which is part of the cluster of 14 lakes that feed River Rwizi. The reminder of the park mainly consists of open savannah and acacia woodland. In the western park, the savannah is interspersed with rocky ridges and forested lodges, while patches of papyrus swamp and narrow bands of lush riparian woodland line the verges of the various lakes.
The park is bypassed by the majority of safaris and independent travelers despite its relative accessibility although it offers some excellent game viewing, and you are most likely to see a variety of different large mammals during day than you would see in any other Uganda national park. Some 315 bird speceies have been recorded in Lake Mburo National Park. It is probably the best place in Uganda to see acacia related species.
