Gone are the days when the visitors had to travel all the way to Kidepo and Lake Mburo National Parks to sight the beautiful herds of zebras. Through her veterinary Unit, Uganda Wildlife Authority has completed the first phase of restocking Katonga Wildlife Reserve which is part of the Kibale Conservation Area in Western Uganda with zebras and impalas.Zebra-translocation

Impalas are the beautiful antelopes from which Uganda's capital derives its name Kampala. The wildlife translocated to Katonga was captured from the ranches around Lake Mburo National Park in July 2013.
Katonga WR is now a popular tourist attraction with a total of 68 impalas and 11 zebras which are enjoying the abundant pastures and water points.
According to Dr. Patrick Atimnedi, the Veterinary Coordinator, the next phase will see translocation of more zebras, elands and topis.
The Chief Conservation Area manager, Charles Tumwesigye says this has been the first translocation exercise done by UWA without external support.
