A compact park at just 370km², Lake Mburo National Park is Uganda’s smallest savannah park. Together with 13 other lakes in the area, Lake Mburo forms an impressive 50km-long wetland system. It’s home to diverse wildlife from zebra and buffalo to Defassa waterbuck, topi and reedbuck, along with eland, impala, oribi, hyena, hippo and leopard. There are also over 350 bird species resident here, including a long list of water birds since there are five lakes within the park borders.</p></p>


    Lake Victoria is Africa’s largest lake by area, the world’s largest tropical lake. and the world’s second largest fresh water lake by surface area, after Lake Superior in North America. In terms of volume, Lake Victoria is the world’s ninth largest continental lake, containing about 2,750 cubic kilometres (2.23×109 acre⋅ft) of water.

    Lake Victoria receives its water primarily from direct rainfall and thousands of small streams. The Kagera River is the largest river flowing into this lake, with its mouth on the lake’s western shore. Lake Victoria is drained solely by the Nile River near Jinja, Uganda, on the lake’s northern shore.


    Lake Bunyonyi is located just over the border in Uganda and makes a really great place to escape to for a few days or longer. The easiest part for Kigali residents to visit is near Kabale, a small city just 30 minutes from the Katuna border 1.5 hours north of Kigali. The lake is large and there are several parts to explore but we’ll just focus on the Kabale-area section because that’s the part I’ve been to.
