Lake Mburo National Park in Uganda

Lake Mburo National Park is situated between the towns of Masaka and Mbarara. It is the only National Park to contain an entire lake and is a convenient stop on the route between Kampala and the gorillas at Bwindi.

The attractive acacia-dotted savannah is home to huge herds of impala, as well as less common topi, eland, klipspringer and other antelope, zebra and buffalo also graze these peaceful acres.

In the lake there are hippo and crocodile and a wonderful diversity of birds due mainly to the varying habitats of the lakeshore and the broad savannah. Among the birds found here are kingfishers, marabou stork, bee-eaters and the cheeky bronze-tailed starling, as well as the beautiful crowned crane, the national emblem of Uganda.
