In The Wild Tour In Uganda

In The Wild Tour In Uganda

This tour takes you to one of the largest of five lakes that are nearby the wetlands, and it accounts for only 20% of this unique lake found in western Uganda.

The park covers only 370km² yet it has 5 lakes within. It’s situated between the towns of Masaka and Mbarara taking you about 4 hours to get there. Lake Mburo National Park is the only place where you can spot Impalas in Uganda, along with Antelopes and Elands. There are also many herds of Buffalo and Zebra within this national park.

More so, the main story of how Lake Mburo came about is also an Ankole myth. The two brothers known as Kigarama and Mburo used to live in a big valley. One day Kigarama had a dream and he decided to tell his brother that they had to move. Mburo ignored his brother and Kigarama decided to move up into the hills. The valley below flooded with water and a lake was formed which drowned Mburo. The lake is named after him and the nearby hills are called Kigarama after his own brother. The area is also covered with the Cassine tree which is said to have powerful aphrodisiac effects. On these trees, you can see signs of bark as well as branch removal and may be seen near the Kigambira loop crossroads. The other part of the park is well covered in Acacia savannah as well and is also famous for many antelopes. There are also five lakes in the park that always attract crocodiles, hippos, water birds as well as the swamps that harbor secretive papyrus specialists like the sitatunga antelopes, black and yellow papyrus ganalex etc.
