Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of the two gorilla tracking destinations in Uganda. It lies in the southwestern part of the country on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Ugandas oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants and a few forest animals such as the Forest Elephant among others.
More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 320 mountain gorillas which is roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.
This biologically diverse region also provides shelter to a further 120 mammals, including several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes. There are around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics.
The neighboring towns of Buhoma and Nkuringo both have an impressive array of luxury and budget lodges, rustic bandas and budget campsites, as well as restaurants, craft stalls and guiding services. Opportunities abound to discover the local Bakiga and Batwa Pygmy cultures through performances, workshops and village walks.
