Boat Rides/Launch Trips On Lake Mburo
Horseback safaris are one of the exciting ways to see Uganda wildlife in Lake Mburo while on your holiday in Uganda. It is a great opportunity to get close to animals such as zebras and buffaloes which are far more relaxed around horses than around cars. During these Uganda safari tours, one feels part of nature because even the shy elands come close to you.
Lake Mburo horseback safaris are operated by Mihingo lodge in the east of the park. Rides are tailored to individual experience and requirements.
Kids can be led on good-natured ponies while at the other extreme experienced riders can help a couple of retired racehorses burn off some calories.
The maximum weight that you can be to ride a horse is 100 kg, but most of the horses cannot carry more than 85kg. All rides are accompanied by at least one experienced horse guide, but in most cases, 2 guides are accompanying each ride.
