Land of lakes
Dominated by Lake Mburo, this park features rolling grassland, extensive acacia woodlands and a vast swamp, which is fed by the Ruizi River and links Lake Mburo with the five other lakes of the park.
As one would expect of such a land of lakes, the park is famous for its hippo, crocodile and abundant water birds.
Wildlife highlights: leopard, spotted hyena, olive baboon, vervet monkey, zebra, impala, buffalo, eland, waterbuck, topi, sitatunga aquatic antelope, hippo, Nile crocodile and three species of otter. Birds: 315 species of birds have been recorded including the rare shoebill stork and the African finfoot.
