This morning you’ll meet a Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger who will take you on a walking safari through the plains of Lake Mburo National Park.

In the early afternoon you’ll be taken out of the park boundaries and drive north back over the equator to Kampala (or Entebbe), arriving by late afternoon or early evening.
