Travel from Jinja via Kampala to Uganda’s most accessible National park Lake Mburo. We shall have our lunch at the Equator crossing. After lunch, we shall proceed to Lake Mburo National park with a game viewing drive to the lodge or camp where we spend our night. BLD
Morning game safari along the western side of the main lake. Visit a fishing village and then explore some of the undeveloped tracks along the edge of the southern boundary. Moderate to difficult rides customized to the group. After this wonderful interaction with the game, we shall head back to where we spent our night for lunch. Afternoon safari following the tracks around the eastern side of the main lake, then through some magnificent rolling country to Kazuma Hill Lookout. The ride back in the late afternoon; sun going down behind the hills, lines of zebra and impala walking back from watering holes and topi pairs watching our progress across the plains and through the valleys; will be one of the highlights for the afternoon.
We explore parts of the buffer zone around the park, where there are often more wild animals than inside the park boundaries at times Elands are seen here. This ride is customized according to the group interest. We have the option of some challenging sections that will put your skills to the test. Lunch is an option of traditional foods at a village or a packed lunch. A chance to meet the very hospitable faces of rural Uganda and enjoy varied African landscapes.
Journeys Uganda gives you the option of either; an early morning walking safari or boat cruise along the lake where the park derives its name or a game drive. Morning tea will be waiting for you on your return then we start the return trip to Kampala or Jinja depending on the time of your flight and date. Lunch at Masaka, arrival Kampala mid afternoon and if you are going back to Jinja, arrival will be in the early evening.
