Beautifully tucked away along the Masaka Mbarara highway, Lake Mburo National park is one of the very few national parks that have a cocktail of species.
With a variety of guests flocking in to explore its beauties, we look at how the park has become a magnet for tourism.
From the sad story of a man called Mburo who refused to heed to his brother’s advice after a dream that the valley in which they lived was about to be submerged in water, Lake Mburo got her name and so did the Lake Mburo national park.
A habitat rich with mostly zebras, Lake Mburo National park has a variety of animals and birds. The park is Prominent for bird watching, game drives and boat rides as our guide Naa\mara Alex from Encounter Africa Safaris explains.
While it is the smallest park in the country, sitting on about 260 square km, Mburo’s bounty is not easily matched.
Give that Mburo has a variety of animals with 315 bird species, the park has different types of habitats ranging from bushes, thickets, lakes, swamps among others.
One of the very convenient reasons Lake Mburo becomes a place to visit for international tourists is its proximity from Entebbe international airport but also from the centre Kampala. It’s even gets more convenient for the nationals.
This could also explain the many bookings to the park.
But even though the part has a variety of animals, and different types of habitats, amazing is the manner of coexistence amongst the animals.
Lake Mburo’s uniqueness does not fade with the sunset, the night Alex says comes with a set of sceneries.
