About Lake Mburo National Park
Whispers Of The Wild

Lake Mburo National Park is situated approximately 240 kilometers from Kampala (it is the closest park to Kampala) and 30 km from Mbarara and 290km from Entebbe International Airport. It is the smallest park of all the savanna national parks in Uganda.

In 1933, Lake Mburo was gazetted off as a controlled hunting area and later upgraded to a game reserve in 1936. Mbarara district is predominately occupied by the Banyakole tribe who are known cattle keepers and they used Lake Mburo game reserve as a grazing area for their cattle to punish the Banyakole, the then president of Uganda, Sir Milton Obote decided to grant Lake Mburo a National Park status in 1983 to punish and oust out the Banyakole out of the national park whom he believed that they supported the rebels and they ended up as squatters around the park since they weren’t compensated for their lost land.

Lake Mburo national park is covered in metamorphic rocks which are believed to have lasted more than 500 million years and create very beautiful scenery alongside the greatest highlights of Lake Mburo National Park.

Lake Mburo National Park is famous for the zebras, Impalas, elands, buffaloes, oribi, Waterbucks, Leopard, hippos, hyenas, and reedbucks among others.
