Our Game drives are designed to take you close to the wildlife. This gives you an opportunity to view wild animals in their natural habitat as they go about their daily activities.
Game drives are done during the day or night time.
Lake Mburo is the smallest of Uganda’s wildlife parks and very centrally located a few hours’ drive from Kampala and less than one day’s drive from the southwest of Uganda (home of the mountain gorillas). Lake Mburo has rich animal life with more than 315 different bird species and 68 different mammals (including impala, buffalo, leopards, hyenas, jackals, etc). Lake Mburo is also the only park in Uganda where you can find zebras.
Lake Mburo Walking Safari
Lake Mburo N.P. is one of two parks in Uganda where it is permitted to go for a bush walk with an experienced ranger. And this opportunity should not be missed.
From footprints and animal droppings the ranger will tell you which animal has left it and how long ago. It is exciting to approach the wildlife at such close range.
Lake Mburo Horseback Safari
If you are in or passing near Lake Mburo, don’t miss the chance of going on a safari on horseback. You’ll ride for two full hours sighting zebra, gazelle, buffalo, while also enjoying wonderful landscapes along the way.
The horses are very well trained and maintained by their German owners. There are horses available for riders of different levels of experience.
Kidepo Valley National Park
With great savanna landscapes and mountains rising up in the background, the remote Kidepo Valley NP is a true gem of Uganda’s nature.
The park spans 1,442 km2 and ranges from 900 to 2.750 m in altitude. Because of its remote location on the border with South Sudan, Kidepo Valley is possibly the only national park left on the whole continent where you can almost have the park to yourself (average of six visitors per day).
Game viewing is possible by vehicle on dirty roads that crisscross the southern and western parts of the park. A few trunk roads are improved with murram and are passable in all weather.
Kidepo is also home to almost all of the animal species present in the Uganda National Parks system, including lion, giraffe, elephant, buffalo, leopard, ostrich and cheetah.
Kidepo Valley N.P. was recently rated 3rd-best National Park in Africa by CNN.
