The Western region of Uganda is blessed with an array of beautiful natural sceneries ranging from the undulating relief, to the green vegetation cover which habours a lot of game and various plant species. The region also has fascinating water bodies, one prominent one being the Kitagata hot springs whose waters are believed to heal various diseases.
As result of these attractions, the region has four of the national parks in Uganda which can be accessed from Mbarara within minutes and some a few hours drive. At Lake View Resort Hotel, we organise tours to all destinations in western Uganda.
Lake Mburo National Park is found within Mbarara district and is only a thirty five minutes (35) drive from Mbarara town. Game viewing is the main tourist activity in Lake Mburo National Park due to its biodiversity.
Lake Mburo National Park is home to 350 bird species as well as zebra, impala, eland, buffalo, oribi, Defassa waterbuck, leopard, hippo, hyena, topi and reedbuck. Together with 13 other lakes in the area, Lake Mburo forms part of a 50km-long wetland system linked by a swamp. Five of these lakes lie within the park’s borders. Once covered by open savanna, Lake Mburo National Park now contains much woodland as there are no elephants to tame the vegetation. In the western part of the park, the savanna is interspersed with rocky ridges and forested gorges while patches of papyrus swamp and narrow bands of lush riparian woodland line many lakes.
A visit to Lake Mburo will make your travel to Uganda a memorable experience. Contact us at Lake View Resort Hotel to arrange your safari. Send us an inquiry via firstname.lastname@example.org or call our reservation team on +256 701 367970.
