According to an old folk tale from the Ankole Kingdom which tells of the two brothers, Kigarama and Mburo. There is a belief to it that the brothers are said to have lived in the valleys within the national park, and on one dark night, Kigarama had a scary dream in which floods covered the entire valley killing him and the brother. Shaken as he was Kigarama decided to caution Mburo and convince him to leave his home in the valley but all that was in vain as all his warnings fell on deaf ears. The valley indeed flooded with water and thus forming the current lake Mburo, the lake was there after named after Mburo and the surrounding hills named Kigarama in remembrance of the two brothers.
