Activities in Lake Mburo

Walking Trails - The area is out standing for walking safaris, the terrain is easy going and you will be in the company of a good guide, a very productive option.  Areas of particular interest are Rubanga Forest on the western side of Lake Mburo which is good for forest birds, the Rwonyo viewing plat form overlooking a salt lick.

Wildlife Safaris-Game drives

The park has a well developed network of roads for the wildlife safaris on the eastern side of the park.  Game moves and congregates seasonally.

Boat trip on Lake Mburo

The jetty at Rwonyo is the starting point for a 2 hour boat ride on the Lake Mburo.  On the boat ride can spot birds, hippos and game drawn to water's edge.

Horse riding Safaris

Fantastic routes through the park for horseback safaris are available organised by the Mihingo lodge.  The best ride is the 4 to 5 hour long grassy Warukiri Range situated in the middle of the park with stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding hills and valleys in the park.  At the end of this range is a water hole, which often attracts buffaloes and other animals combined with a magnificent view of 9 of the 12 lakes surrounding Lake Mburo National Park.
