Lake Mburo national park is located in the western part of Uganda in Kiruhura district, 30 kilometers east of the largest city in the sub-region, Mbarara. Lake Mburo national park was gazetted as a national park in 1983 after being used as a hunting ground by the Bahima and later as a grazing field. Currently it is the smallest savannah conservation area in Uganda, meaning it is the smallest park in Uganda covering an estimated area of 260 square kilometers but with some distinctive attributes that are so unique from other national parks in Uganda.
