Lake Mburo National Park is usually visited on a tour, possibly as an overnight break driving between Kampala and Bwindi NP. Lake Mburo is located in western Uganda, 228km/142mi from Kampala and 250-300km/150-180mi from Bwindi (depending on which gorilla trekking base you are headed to). The drive from Kampala takes about five hours and the drive on to Bwindi about six to seven hours.

Entebbe International Airport (EBB) is about 46km/29mi from the country’s capital, Kampala. This will be your entry point into Uganda. Your local tour operator will usually arrange for your pick-up from the airport or hotel and all further transportation as part of your safari package.
