This Lake Mburo National Park Day Tour takes you to explore Uganda’s smallest national park. Lake Mburo National Park is situated in the western part of Uganda along the Kampala – Masaka highway, it is the smallest of the country’s savannah national parks, the only park close to the city areas,  the underlined Precambrian rocks support wildlife. Lake Mburo is mostly occupied by waterbodies which join together to form a large wetland ecosystem, traditionally it is said that the park was occupied by Ankole pastoralists, more so the 2 brothers Mburo and Kagama, according to legend it is said that one day Kagama dreamt that it had overly rained in the area and warned his brother about going to the area, who didn’t listen to him, the rains found him in the park and flooded to form the present day Lake Mburo, which is the name of the national park. Wildlife has been scarce in the park due to tsetse fly invasion however a big thank you to the Uganda wildlife authority for the reallocation of animals. This said Lake Mburo remains without large mammals like elephants and big cats like Lions.
