Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park: generally lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Furthermore, its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests. These dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas– roughly half of the world’s population. These include several habituated groups, which can be tracked.

This biologically diverse region also provides shelter to a further 120 mammals, including several primate species. These include baboons, chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes. Additionally, there are around 350 bird species hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics. Opportunities abound to discover the local Bakiga and Batwa pygmy cultures through performances, workshops and village walks.
