Lake Mburo is recorded as the best place in the country where you can see the gigantic eland antelope, as well as zebra, topi, impala, and several acacia-associated birds. The sitatunga antelope is confined to swamp interiors and the Klipspringer is occasionally observed in rocky areas. Only two diurnal primates occur at Lake Mburo; the Vervet monkey and olive baboon.
