Lake Mburo National Park

Lake Mburo national park is Uganda’s smallest savanna national parks and extends over 260 Kms squared of undulating landscape. Lying in the one part of Uganda covered in extensive acacia savanna grassland and woodland, Mburo has markedly different fauna to other reserves. Other parts of the park consist of wetland habitats, that attract different animals and birds that are nature lovers.
Lake Mburo is the best place in the country to see the gigantic eland antelope, as well as zebra, topi, impala, and several acacia-associated birds.

The five lakes in the park also attract various hippos, crocodiles and a variety of waterbirds, while fringing swamps hide secretive six papyrus endemics which include the papyrus gonolek, blue-headed coucal, white-winged, and papyrus yellow warblers.
