Wildlife is beauty but the zebras in Lake Mburo are too unique and outstanding, their hairy stripes in black and white which make them look gorgeous and you may think you looking at lovely fabric print. Interestingly the strips pattern together the thing you only notice when you get close to it. Zebras like moving in herds and groups a general method they use to defend themselves from predators because predators get confused looking at several stripes of black and white hence making it difficult for them to indentify a particular zebra to feast on. The Zebra colour also put off some insects which only know single colours.However their striking stripes guide them to one another while in the wild. In Lake Mburo the most worry for zebras are the hyenas though Zebras always defend themselves since they move and graze in groups and herds. Besides the animals welcome all guests to the park without missing out on any since they are too social and found in every corner of the park.

They always walk around the park savanna as they eat plants,& vegetation.

Still to come is the shaggy haired animal the Defassa Waterbucks always brown in colour covered with light hair which can’t keep or store water. The animal hair acts as a water repellent in case the animal falls in a Lake or swamp though some people think it lives in water. Common defessa waterbuck in Lake Mburo have wide white patches on the either side of the rump and males have horns. The horn curves are for defense though they are the most disturbed by predators.
