“Like Lake Mburo National Park itself, this lodge is a hidden gem. We used it as a stopover en route to Bwindi to see the gorillas in the hope of catching sight of a little savannah game (maybe a leopard). But its much more than a stopover!”
Lake Mburo Area Attractions
Kimbla-Mantana’s Lake Mburo Camp is situated in the centre of the Lake Mburo National Park and thus can serve perfectly as your base for treks in the park.
Lake Mburo National Park is an attractive park, often used as a half way stop on the way to the parks of western Uganda. It consists of a series of rugged hills that overlook flat bottomed valleys. The park centers on picturesque Lake Mburo and four smaller lakes.
This park is the only place in Uganda where one can see Impala and zebra and contains one of the greatest concentrations of Eland. Other species seen are buffalo, waterbuck, hippo, leopard, hyena, jackel, klipspringer and long-horned Ankole cattle.
Due to abundant water, there is a wide variety of birdlife including the rare Shoebill Stork, Narina’s trogon and Abyssinian ground hornbill.
