Lake Mburo National Park is located in southwestern Uganda and occupies an area of approximately 520 square kilometers. The park is named after the largest of the park’s 14 lakes. Vegetation varies from acacia grassland, marshes in the south and open savannah. Large herds of zebra, impala (found nowhere else in Uganda) and buffalo call this park home. The wetland system around the lake is home to the aquatic sitatunga antelope and hippo. Other game include leopard, eland, reedbuck, topi, bushbuck, klipspringer and giraffe
Birds such as emerald-spotted dove and bare-faced go-away birds, occur alongside the lilac-breasted roller and pennant-winged nightjar, herons, storks, cormorants, ducks and pelicans.
The park offers horseback riding, bush walks and boating on the lake, and is a good place to overnight when driving between Bwindi and Kampala.
