4 Days/ 3 Nights Lake Mburo Wildlife & Bwindi Forest Gorillas Trekking Safari focuses on two great Ugandan parks Lake Mburo National Park for exciting game drives, boat rides and Bwindi for gorilla tracking. Lake Mburo National Park is the smallest of Uganda’s savannah National Parks.

 

It is known for sculptured landscape with rolling grassy hills and its idyllic lake shores with a variety of different species of mammals and birds. After Lake Mburo National Park, proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a park known as a home of endangered Mountain Gorillas, the most awe-inspiring primates to be found in Africa.

 

Lake Mburo National Park is the best place in the country to see the gigantic eland antelope, topi, impala, as well as the largest zebra population in Uganda, and several acacia-associated birds.

 

The five lakes within the park attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of water birds, while fringing swamps hide secretive papyrus specialists such as the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus gonalek.

 

The thick, rainforest environment, Bwindi Forest in the Virunga Volcanoes mountain range is most famous for being the home to half of the world’s populations of endangered Mountain Guerillas. Whether you are a guerilla-lover or not, the experience of encountering such animals is said to be one of the most emotional wildlife adventures you will ever have. In addition, the forest’s unique eco-system has been named a World Heritage Site.

 

Walking through the forest is tricky, as you will find steep, slippery valleys as well as high ridges amongst thick vegetation as the forest is at least 25,000 years old. The Bwindi Forest is known to be exceptionally cold during the mornings and at night so it is recommended to bring along warm weather gear plus wet weather attire as it frequently rains in the area.

 

The bio diversity in the forest is impeccable as it provides a home for over 310 species of butterfly, 200 trees, 88 moths, 120 species of mammals including 10 species of primates, and 51 reptiles.

 

The various primates that can be found in the forest in addition to the mountain guerilla, include red tailed and blue monkey, L’Hoest’s, chimpanzee, black and white colobus, and baboons.
