Safety

In our opinion, most animal reserves and parks can be visited safely in Uganda, and Lake Mburo NP is no different. During your travels, most of the people you meet will either be tourists or people working for your tour operators, lodges or the park.

Malaria & Vaccinations

Protection from malaria is advised. It is also important that you have certain vaccinations before arriving in the country, as well as stocking up on antimalarial medication. And don’t forget mosquito repellent (containing at least 30% DEET) as you will need to apply it in the evening when the risk of being bitten is greatest.
