Smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks, Lake Mburo features markedly different fauna from parks like Bwindi or Kibale. Hippo, crocodile and a variety of water birds frequent the five lakes within the park, while the fringing swamps hide secretive wetlands wildlife like the sitatunga, as well as the red, black and yellow papyrus gonalek bird. Mburo is also the best place in Uganda to spot cape eland, zebra, topi and impala (for which Kampala is named).
Our cycling experience at Lake Mburo includes early morning, late afternoon and full day bush exploration on mountain bikes. If you’re adventurous and like to keep fit, you can also explore the sandy tracks outside the park. Our guides will join you on this ride and make sure you don’t get lost!
Most of the tracks are suitable for a gentle family ride while taking in the wildlife all around. But there are plenty of alternative routes for more extreme riders to explore, like diving onto narrow animal paths or clambering over termite mounds.
During your stay in the park, you can also enjoy game drives, boat rides and optional horseback riding experiences. There’s also the option of limiting your cycling safari to Lake Mburo or combining it with a longer trip that includes other areas in Uganda and Rwanda.
