Day-2-Return to Entebbe or Kampala
Afternoon Saltlick Hike – Nature Walk:
Enjoy a delightful breakfast before embarking on an exhilarating day of hiking in the captivating Lake Mburo Park, accompanied by a knowledgeable Ugandan Wildlife Authority Ranger. To ensure a successful hiking experience, coming prepared with the proper clothing, equipment, and a packed lunch is essential.
A daypack will prove invaluable, allowing you to carry your essentials comfortably. Bring at least two liters of drinking water to stay hydrated throughout the hike. A delicious picnic lunch will also be provided, allowing you to savor your meal while sitting on a scenic ridge overlooking the park.
When it comes to clothing, it is essential to prioritize protection. While you may see people in the picture wearing shorts and t-shirts, it is advisable to follow the lead of your ranger guide. Opt for wellies or boots, long trousers, and a long-sleeved shirt. These clothing choices provide essential protection against thorns, brush, potential snake bites, Savanna Tsetse Flies (which played a role in the creation of Lake Mburo Park through the spread of sleeping sickness, though they no longer carry the disease), mosquitoes, flies, and ants. Hiking boots are a necessity, offering ankle support and enhanced protection. Bring a lightweight rain jacket to prepare for any unexpected drizzles or showers during the day.
Enjoy the morning with a guided hike to the Salt Licks, a remarkable experience that will take you to the top of a hill. From this vantage point, you can marvel at the breathtaking views of nine regional lakes while enjoying lunch. The mountain and the hike leading up to it are teeming with diverse bird species and fascinating mammals, providing ample opportunities for incredible wildlife sightings.
