Lake Mburo National Park

Information

Lake Mburo National Park is located in southwestern Uganda between Masaka and Mbarara. This approximately 200-square-mile (520-km2) park is named after the largest of the park’s 14 lakes.  Located in the rain shadow between Lake Victoria and the Ruwenzori Mountains, the park is characterized by open plains in the north, acacia grassland in the center and lakes and marshes in the  south. It is bounded by the Kampala-Mbarara road on the north, Lake Kachera on the east and the Ruizi River on the west.


Herds of zebra, impala (found nowhere else in Uganda) and buffalo enjoy this habitat, and the wetland system around the lake is home to the aquatic sitatunga antelope and hippo. Other game includes leopard, eland, reedbuck, topi, bushbuck and klipspringer.
