Designated in 1982, Lake Mburo National Park has a total size of just 260 square kilometers, making it the smallest of the nation's savannah national parks. The reserve is located in western Uganda and home to zebras, impala, buffaloes and various bird species. Twenty percent of the park's surface is covered by five lakes (the largest of which is Lake Mburo), which makes for nice bird-watching throughout the entire year.
Despite its small size, a variety of plants and animals can be found among the grassy hills, bushy thickets, swamps and lake shores. Boat trips and nature trail hikes are popular activities, and visitors can stay in campgrounds and permanent tent facilities.
