Lake Mburo National Park is a compact gem, situated in the three district of Kiruhura, Isingiro and Mbarara district in western part of Uganda close to the highway that links Kampala main city to the various Parks of western Uganda. It is the smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks and located just 240square kilometers from Uganda’s Capital city Kampala and 30 km by road east of Mbarara town. Lying in the one part of Uganda covered in extensive acacia woodland, Mburo has markedly different fauna to other parks and reserves. Lake Mburo is the best protected area in the Uganda where you can see the gigantic eland antelope, as well as zebra, waterbuck, Klipspringer and the rare topi, impala, and several acacia – associated birds. The five lakes within the park attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of water birds, while fringing swamps hide secretive papyrus specialists such as the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus gonolek. Lake Mburo is the closest national park to Kampala and offers a refreshing stopover when travelling to or from the western parks and reserves.
