2 day Lake Mburo wildlife safari detailed itinerary
Day 1: Transfer to Lake Mburo and afternoon boat cruise
You will receive the briefing about your 2 day Lake Mburo wildlife safari prior to your departure. We will have an early start as we head to Lake Mburo national park. Driving along Kampala-Masaka road, we will make our first stop at the equator. Here, we will have breakfast and indulge in the hemispheric experiments. Taking pictures at the equator monument is a given. We will proceed and on reaching Lake Mburo national park, we will check into our lodge. An early lunch will ensure we have enough time to catch the afternoon boat cruise on Lake Mburo.
The drive to the lake offers amazing wildlife encounters. These include big herds of impala, zebra, giraffes, eland, buffalo, warthogs, topi, bush backs and many more. On reaching the lake, we will embark on our boat cruise. This cruise is relaxing and offers amazing views of the surrounding hills. On the boat cruise, we will see hippos in the water and crocodiles and buffalo by the banks of the lake. Plenty of bird species like African fish eagle, crested crane, lapwing and many more can be seen on this boat cruise. This boat cruise lasts up to 2 hours.
After the boat cruise, we will embark on an evening game drive. On this game drive, we will see more wildlife that we may have missed on our way to the lake. If we are lucky, we will be able to see the elusive leopards. On arrival at the lodge, we will relax and enjoy the views of the park, the sunset and a relaxing evening.
Day 2: Nature walk and transfer to Kampala.
On day 2 of this Uganda wildlife safari, we will wake up to a healthy breakfast before heading out to a walk in the park. With an armed ranger, we will get to explore the park and have closer encounters with the wildlife on this Uganda wildlife safari. Zebras, impalas, giraffes, zebras and topi are some of the wildlife we shall have close encounters with. There’s an option of doing a horse riding safari instead of the nature walk. The nature walk lasts up to 2 hours. The horse safari however is billed per hour. Your budget will dictate how long the safari goes. After the nature walk/horse riding safari, we will return to the lodge. After an early lunch, we will depart for Kampala stopping en-route for some refreshment.
This will mark the end of our 2 day Lake Mburo wildlife safari.
