Located conveniently close to the highway that connects Kampala to the parks of western Uganda, Lake Mburo National Park (LMNP) is a compact gem. The smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks, it is home to 350 bird species as well as zebra, giraffe, impala, eland, buffalo, oribi, Defassa waterbuck, leopard, hippo, hyena, topi and reedbuck.
Together with 13 other lakes in the area, Lake Mburo forms part of a 50km-long wetland system linked by a swamp. Five of these lakes lie within the park’s borders.

DAY 1: Kampala – LMNP
6.30am – You will be met at rendezvous point of choice within central Kampala by our Igufa Safaris’ guide. We recommend you carry a light snack or have an early breakfast – you can also make your breakfast “order to go” with Coffee At Last (0758263333) before 8pm a day before departure.

You will arrive at your overnight safari camp in time for lunch. Pitched on a hill top overlooking the wilderness of the Mburo, you have a vantage view with high chance of spotting game before you even make that much of an effort.

Set off on an evening game drive as the intensity of the sun starts to diminish. We head off in search of various mammals especially zebra and giraffe before returning to camp for dinner and overnight.
