Lake Mburo National Park presents mix of rolling hills, acacia woodland and rocky outcrops that offer a stunning backdrop to view the parks game herds. On your game drive you will get the chance to spot some species rarely seen in other parts of Uganda including Burchell’s zebra, and eland; Africa’s largest antelope species which are only found here and in Kidepo Valley National Park in the north-east. Here you’ll see (unless you are incredibly unlucky), the countries only population of impala. You will also be able to spot the more common species grazing on the grasslands including warthog, buffalo, oribi, waterbuck, reedbuck and with a bit of luck the Rothschild giraffes, which were reintroduced to the park landscape from Murchison Falls National Park in 2015. This small population of giraffe is thankfully growing to further protect this endangered subspecies.
Estimated excursion time: 3 hrs
After darkness falls across the savannah set out to explore the network of tracks criss-crossing the landscape to observe the secret lives of our wildlife. Few people get to experience such animal behaviour in the wilds of Uganda’s national parks. You’ll be with a Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger, who will be scanning the savannah forest with their spotlights to search for a variety of species including the genet cat, bushpigs and hippos grazing amongst the scrub. This nocturnal game drive also gives you an excellent opportunity to seek out some of the parks top predators including spotted hyena and one of the highest chances of seeking out the solitary leopards of anywhere in Uganda! After several hours scouring the park you’ll be returned to your lodge for the evening.
