LAKE MBURO NATIONAL PARK

LAKE MBURO NATIONAL PARK

Kidepo is Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long journey north through the wild frontier region of Karamoja would agree that it is also the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. From Apoka, in the heart of the park, a savannah landscape extends far beyond the gazetted area, towards horizons outlined by distant mountain ranges

Overview

The park has a variety of animals such as zebras, hippopotami, impala, warthogs, elands, buffaloes, jackals, leopards, and over three hundred (300) bird species. At 260 square kilometres (100 sq mi), the park is the smallest of Uganda’s Savannah national parks. The park has camp grounds and permanent tent facilities for visitors.

Lake Mburo National Park is unique to the fact that it’s the most safe park for Guided Bike Tours and Horse Rides due to the absence of the blood thirsty Lions. There is a sizable leopard population in the park though this doesn’t pose a serious threat to the tourists because they hunt solo.
