At last, we are at the conclusion of this journey through this incredible park, considering its size.
We had the chance to see and appreciate very different species and got to finally see them in real life.

This was my first safari and I truly loved it. My first but not my last.
In fact, in 2 weeks I am going to undertake another and much longer challenge: Murchison Falls National Park.
Skulls of several animals, including an hippo (the largest one).
After meeting many of the animals in the Lake Mburo national park, we are almost at the end of our journey. Now it is time for the buffalos and the very curious warthogs.
During our walk, we saw many warthogs (if you didn’t notice yet, they are nonetheless the same species as Pumba, from Disney’s The Lion King); they seemed to be, as I said before, very curious. Continue Reading

Last Sunday, with some friends, I went to the Lake Mburo national park (near Mbarara) to have a day trip.
It has been amazing and I feel we have been rather lucky as we visited it during the afternoon (the best time to see the fauna is either in the morning or in the evening, when the animals go back to the lake to get some water); but we’ve managed to see impalas, which, in Uganda, only lives in Lake Mburo, zebras, as well as baboons, buffalos and a hippo. Very exciting!

I don’t think I need to add anything more.
So, stay tuned!
