Can I Hike in Lake Mburo National Park-Uganda



Lake Mburo national park is always open to all walkers as long as they are accompanied by a Uganda Wildlife Authority park ranger guide. Lake Mburo National Park’s hiking and nature walks take place at Rwonyo. The guided nature walk takes travelers to the salt lick area, which has the highest concentration of wild animals that are attracted to the salty rocks. Rwonyo guided nature walks are on the western part of Lake Mburo National Park and normally start at 7 a.m. and take approximately 2 hours. Travelers always meet many animal species, such as hyenas returning to their dens and hippos along the shores of Lake Mburo. Lake Mburo national park hikes happen within the woodland, offering travelers an opportunity to view many forest bird species and mammals, and a Lake Mburo national park nature walk to the top of the hill rewards every adventurer with spectacular views showcasing nine of the region’s 14 beautiful lakes.


The Rubanga forest-guided nature walks give many walkers a greater opportunity to spot many bird sightings. The Rubanga forest walk requires travelers to book prior to their travel dates for proper arrangements, and the Rubanga forest nature walks are in the company of the park ranger.


Travelers interested in hiking breakfast in Lake Mburo are also accompanied by the Ugandan Wildlife Authority Ranger. Travelers are required to have the right clothes, equipment, and a packed lunch. Every traveler should have those things ready by the day of hiking at Lake Mburo National park. The hiking daypack includes a picnic lunch and 2 liters of water. 


Travelers should carry wellies or waterproof boots, long trousers, and long-sleeved shirts. These clothes are good for your hiking safari in the bush; they protect you against the brush and the thorns that may prick your skin, and they also help against snake bites, mosquitoes, tsetse flies, ants, and flies. The hiking boots are also necessary because they protect your ankle and support you during the hike.


Hiking in the wilderness also requires a traveler to carry a light rain jacket. The hiking day starts with this guided hike to the salt lick zone within Lake Mburo national park, then travelers hike to the top of the hill where they can clearly see nine of the 14 great region lakes. Lunch is enjoyed at the top of the hill, and travelers may also be able to spot many mammals and bird species on both the hill and along the hiking trail.


A Rubanga forest hike requires special permission from the park warden. A Rubanga forest hike or nature walk is mostly for travelers interested in bird watching.


Lake Mburo national park has got nature walk trails anywhere within the park with an armed Uganda Wildlife Authority guide. Travelers may be able to spot a variety of wildlife species, such as hyenas coming from their dens, hippos along the lake shores, zebras, Rothschild giraffes, elands, buffaloes, topis, antelopes, bird species, and butterfly species.
