Overview of Lake Mburo Camp

Set on a hill with commanding views, Lake Mburo Camp is designed on the principles of a classic safari lodge but with an eco-friendly twist. Rustic and intimate, this is the ideal base to experience the wildlife and birds of Lake Mburo National Park.

Enjoy game drives and safari walks in the company of an expert guide who will reveal the secrets of the flora and fauna of the park, which is home to plains game including eland, zebra and impala that are only found in this region of Uganda.

Boat cruises on the lake will reveal a host of hippos and birds – like the African finfoot and white-backed night heron – that will leave you with a fantastic overview of this fascinating ecosystem. Macro photographers will enjoy trying to capture the colourful array of delicate butterflies in spring.

Ideal as a stopping point on a journey to the parks of southwest Uganda, Lake Mburo is a lesser-known gem in Uganda’s wildlife crown.

    Standard Tent

    Nine canvas suites are built on raised platforms to maximise the views from their private verandahs. Spacious and elegantly furnished with hardwoods and leather chairs, they evoke the spirit of pioneering safari camps. Gauze windows allow cooling breezes in, while keeping unwanted creepy crawlies out, while a walk-in mosquito net around the bed adds an extra protection. The en suite facilities feature signature amenities, flushing toilets, hand basins and refreshing hot showers.

    General Facilities

    Elegantly constructed from wood, thatch and stone, Lake Mburo Camp blends perfectly into its surroundings and epitomises the ethos of a classic safari camp. Viewing decks face out over a breathtaking vista of the lake and the surrounding landscape that teems with life. A spacious lounge and bar area provides a welcoming space in which to relax and enjoy the view during the day, and the cosy fireplace is perfect for a pre-dinner drink in the evenings.






    All meals are prepared to an excellent standard and feature a variety of fresh ingredients and tropical fruits. Pan-African dishes are combined with a Mediterranean influence that makes for inspiring, wholesome and healthy fare.
