Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Overview

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is located in southwestern Uganda and is one of the most biologically diverse areas in Africa. It is renowned for its population of endangered mountain gorillas, making it a popular destination for gorilla trekking.

The park covers an area of approximately 331 square kilometers and is characterized by its dense, tropical rainforest, mist-covered hills, and steep valleys. It is named “impenetrable” due to the thick vegetation, which makes it challenging to navigate.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is home to around half of the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population, making it a crucial conservation area. Visitors have the opportunity to embark on guided gorilla trekking expeditions, where they can observe these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.

In addition to gorillas, the park also supports a wide range of other wildlife, including several primate species, such as chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, and baboons. It is also a birding paradise, with over 350 species of birds recorded within the park.

To preserve its delicate ecosystem and protect the gorillas, a limited number of permits are issued each day for gorilla trekking. Visitors are advised to book permits well in advance. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park offers a unique and unforgettable experience for nature and wildlife enthusiasts.
