Trip Planner : Africa / Uganda / Western Region / Mbarara
One of Mbarara's popular attractions--Lake Mburo National Park--lies in close proximity to the city, just a short ride away. That will top your Mbarara itinerary list, followed by traditional food tasting via the city's restaurants and open markets. Maneuvering around the city is easy with motorcycles or taxis; a mini bus can take you further away to local farms where you can witness production of milk, Western Uganda's biggest export. The outskirts feature green hills which complement the city's laid-back, relaxed character. With our online itinerary creator, Uganda vacations can be built around trips to Mbarara and other destinations in Uganda.
