Uganda Highlight Get face to face with a leopard at Lake Mburo

Little visited Lake Mburo National Park is the smallest of Uganda’s national parks, but none the less it is home to a wide range of animals: zebras, hippos, impalas, oribi, giraffes, warthogs, elands, buffaloes, jackals and leopards. With over 13 lakes in the area, this lake also forms part of the 50km long wetland system that is linked by the swamp. Lovely Katya of Leopard Rest Camp showed me all the park has to offer, and more. We found a python digesting a bushbuck, check out the picture! And at night, I had the chance to spot a leopard!! What a great day at the park 😍

Entrance fee: 40 USD (24 hour pass), Guided morning/evening game drives: 30-40 USD.
