Day 7 : Transfer to Entebbe International Airport to fly back home (4 hr 31 min drive )

We will begin with Horse safaris are an awesome way to see the wildlife while in Lake Mburo, without the noise of motor engines you can hear so much more & you really feel part of nature. Riding a horse means you often get the chance to see the more timid animals. If you are very lucky you may see eland and buffalo. And if lucky enough you may see the leopards on a horse ride! However, this was a very rare sighting. You will nearly always see a mixture of warthog, topi, impala, duiker, bushbuck, waterbuck, and zebra. Of course, the time of year and the weather do affect the number and variety of animals that you see, as the animals graze where the grass is the most delicious. Watching animals from a horse is so peaceful and a totally different experience from being on a game drive; zebras come towards you to check out the strange relative without stripes. Return to the lodge for breakfast & this will be followed by a transfer to Entebbe Airport.
