The famous Ankole Cow is under threat of becoming extinct. The Uganda Ankole Conservation has teamed up with Uganda Wildlife Association to keep that from happening. The Ankole Cow is becoming a Tourist Attraction through their joint efforts.
The Enyemebwa Culture, Conservation, and Education Centre is a joint project of the Ankole Cow Conservation Association (ACCA) and the Ugandan Wildlife Authority. The Centre is located just inside the gate of Lake Mburo National Park. It was established to help conserve the Ankole cow, retain the cultural practices and traditional knowledge of the breed and to ensure that the Ankole Cow thrives in the wildlife-rich landscape surrounding Mburo National Park.
For visitors to Uganda, this is a ‘not to be missed’ destination when visiting Western Uganda. It showcases the culture and lifestyle of the traditional Ankole pastoralist. It allows visitors to mingle with these beautiful cows, watching the calves being milked, the milk turned into ghee (butter), and the cows being watered during the day.
