Encounter Africa safaris organizes Lake Mburo safaris to enjoy a variety of wildlife in Lake Mburo National Park. This is done through game drives, boat cruises on the lake as well as walking safaris. Our Lake Mburo safaris can be combined with other national parks such as Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park. Mburo is emerging as a great stop over to the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park as well as the tree climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Lake Mburo National Park has a bad history where the local community at one time killed all ions to extinction claiming that park land belongs to them and that these lions were killing their cattle. The relationship is however improving as the community are now allowed to graze their cattle on park land. Lions and giraffes have been re-introduced and as such the park is regaining its status as one of the best places for game viewing and boat cruises.
