Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park


Bwindi is best known and most sought after for its population of the famous mountain gorilla. It is home to roughly half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas, about 320 of this critically endangered species. Tucked away in the far southwest of Uganda, bordering Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Bwindi Forest is one of Uganda’s oldest rainforests. Apart from gorillas and other primate species, other mammals such as elephants and antelope can also be spotted. In addition to this, around 350 species of birds will provide a perfect opportunity for bird-lovers.

Traditionally, Bwindi is also the area that the Batwa Pygmies call home, so spending an extra day here can enable you to enhance your experience by getting to know their culture.

At 1.160m – 2.607m above sea level and being covered by thick forest, Bwindi can get quite cold. So make sure to bring along the proper clothes for this climate.
