Large herbivores in African savannahs, Lake Mburo National Park, Uganda
Large herbivore abundance at nine study sites in African savannahs, Lake Mburo National Park, Uganda.

The most numerous ungulate species in Lake Mburo National park are impala (Aepyceros melampus) and Burchell’s Zebra (Equus burchelli). Other common ungulates are eland (Taurotragus oryx), topi (Damascilus korrigum), waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus), bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus), warthog (Phacochoerus africanus) and the African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) (Rannestad et al. 2006).
