3 Days Uganda Fishing Safari in Lake Mburo

The three-day Uganda fishing safari brings you to Lake Mburo National Park, Western Uganda's sole park containing Rothschild giraffes. The greatest place to go fishing is Lake Mburo, and this vacation package also includes a stop at the Uganda Equator crossing and a game drive. You will stay in your choice lodge for two nights, including meals.

Lake Mburo National Park is the most accessible Uganda safari park, taking only 4 hours to arrive via the Kampala-Masaka-Mbarara road. It covers 260 square kilometers and is mostly made up of picturesque savanna grassland, acacia woodland, and a wetland system with five gorgeous lakes.

At Mazinga Landing Site, you'll face heavy tilapia. Lake Mburo is famous for its six different fish species, but the park also has hundreds of impalas, bushbucks, Burchell's zebras, elands, Rothschild giraffes, birds, topis, lions, warthogs, and other animals. Your journey starts and ends in Kampala/Entebbe.
