Lake Mburo is an open woodland / grassland wilderness and a perfect rendez vous to relax, refresh and rejuvinate the energies after the tiring gorilla trekking expedition. The travelers on safari will explore the aquatic wildlife species on an exciting boat cruise, wander into the woodlands and discover the feeding zones of large mammal species.
