Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Shrouded in mist and home to half the continent’s population of endangered mountain gorilla, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a paradise of biodiversity. This ‘impenetrable forest’ is among Uganda’s oldest rainforests.

Why Bwindi?
In addition to the mountain gorilla, Bwindi is one of the best places to see chimpanzee, colobus monkey and rainforest birds like hornbill and turaco. A gorilla tracking experience – highly exclusive due to strict limits on visitor numbers – is an opportunity to walk among 220 species of butterfly and 27 species of frog, all in addition to the 120 species of mammal and 348 bird species present throughout the park.

Gorilla tracking is not only exciting, it’s an important element of conservation. The cost of permits supports the work of the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Protecting the gorillas in turn helps protect the rainforest and the incredible array of plant and animal life that comprises this important ecosystem.
  • Lush and mountainous jungle landscape.
  • Exclusive mountain gorilla tracking.
  • Chimpanzee and colobus monkey.
  • Rich biodiversity with hundreds of species of animals.
  • Terrific birdwatching.
  • An ongoing conservation success story.
