The Enyemebwa Culture, Conservation and Education Centre is a joint project of the Ankole Cow Conservation Association (ACCA) and the Ugandan Wildlife Authority. The Centre based just inside the gate of Lake Mburo National Park in Western Uganda was established to help conserve the Ankole cow, retain the cultural practices and traditional knowledge of the breed and to ensure that the Ankole Cow thrives in the wildlife-rich landscape surrounding Mburo National Park.
For visitors to Uganda, this is a ‘not to be missed’ destination when visiting Western Uganda. It showcases the culture and lifestyle of the traditional Ankole pastoralist and allows visitors to mingle with these beautiful cows, watching the calves being milked, the milk turned into ghee (butter) and the cows being watered during the day.
I have been invited to sit on the Advisory Board of ACCA, and will be activity involved in its promotion both within Uganda and overseas.
