This is the only park in Uganda where you can take a safari on horseback, getting up close and personal with zebra, giraffe and antelope without the confines of your vehicle. Lake Mburo itself is one of Uganda’s birding paradises. Here you can seek out the African finfoot amongst the hippos and crocodiles.
