The Trip to Lake Mburo takes you to one of to the smallest lakes and least known of Africa’s lakes but what the he lacks in size, he makes up for splendor. I say he because this lake was named after a boy who perished during the flood which led to the lakes creation. Lake Mburo is a very special place; every part of it is alive with variety, interest and color. It is the only reserve in Uganda to contain an entire lake, supporting a healthy population of impala, the handsome antelope for which Kampala the capital city of Uganda is named, (the impala is also the only animal that advertises for a big company and is not paid, how? The big strips of white and blackish on their posterior legs are called the Mack Donald’s patch.)

After breakfast you will be met by our driver guide who will greet you and brief you through the itinerary and after, we drive heading to southwestern Uganda. En route, there is a local community popular for making local drums and crafts and a fruit market. Stopover, admire and buy your self souvenirs. Proceed to the Equator line taken as one beautiful scenery in Africa – the pathway of the sun and take photographs, we drive through stunning savannah grasslands as we head to the park arriving in the  early afternoon, arrive in Lake Mburo for a lunch in the park grounds as you marvel at the game and birds within the park.

Day 2: Lake Mburo National Park

Rise early for breakfast before a short drive to the Rwonyo Park Headquarters. This has often been a good chance of seeing hyenas coming back to their dens, hippos walking back to the water, you will see buffalo, zebra, impala and topi and with a bit of luck maybe even a sitatunga, an antelope rarely seen living in the papyrus swamps. For those on a 2day safari, we then have breakfast at the restaurant then drive back to Kampala/Jinja. And for those on a 3day safari,after the morning activities, return the lodge for a late breakfast. After lunch you take a boat ride in Lake Mburo amidst Hippos. Other animals like Crocodiles herons, African Kingfisher, Fish Eagles, Pelicans, and Crested Cranes including local fishermen and fishing villages may be seen.
