Uganda Travel News

Uganda Wildlife authority has now made it possible for you to see giraffes on your way to gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. It should be noted that Uganda Wildlife Authority introduced giraffes in Lake Mburo National Park which had become extinct and now Mburo becomes the third National Park in Uganda where tourists can see giraffes. The other national parks that have giraffes in Uganda include Murchison Falls National Park located in Northern Uganda and Kidepo valley National Park located in North Eastern part of the country and far away from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Giraffes to gorillas in Bwindi

Much as this innovation by Uganda Wildlife Authority has been questioned by many stakeholders including conservationists, it adds on what to see for tourists going to trek gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. One can spend one night before or after his or her gorilla tour in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for game drives in Lake Mburo National Park to see among others giraffes, impalas, zebras among others. This break at lake Mburo is healthy since it reduces the long journey of 8-9 hours into two shorter sections.

Those booking gorilla trekking tours to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga National Park and have an extra day are encouraged to spend at least a night in Lake Mburo National Park so as to enjoy what Uganda has to offer in terms of attractions compared to other East African Countries. If you take a road trip to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, expect to cross the Equator at Kayabwe along the Kampala Masaka highway, Royal drum makers at Mpambire will also make your journey colorful and interesting. In the Ankole region, you will not miss the Hima Pastoralist grazing their famous and historical Ankole Long Horned cattle. The Kigezi region that used to have Kabale, Rukungiri and now Kanungu and Kisoro is punctuated with terraced and rolling hills.
