Game Drive in Lake Mburo National Park

The 370 square km park is the smallest among Savannah National Parks in Uganda. Around Lake Mburo’s main lake, you will see many hippos rolling in water and the gigantic crocodiles waiting on the shorelines. The grid of game pathways in the eastern side of the park has nice topographies including acacia forest, swamplands, green hillsides, rock protrusions and the periodically water-logged valleys.
