Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Gorilla tracking is the park’s main tourist attraction. It is most notable for the 340 Bwindi gorillas, half the world’s population of the critically endangered mountain gorillas.
The Park is located in south western Uganda in East Africa. The park is part of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, and is situated next to the Virunga National Park and on the edge of the Albertine Rift. It comprises 331 square kilometres of jungle forests and contains both montane and lowland forest and is accessible only on foot. The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.
The park provides habitat for some 120 species of mammals, 348 species of birds, 220 species of butterflies, 27 species of frogs, chameleons, geckos and many endangered species.
The park is a sanctuary for colobus monkeys, chimpanzees and many birds (such as hornbills and turacos).
Floristically Bwindi is amongst the most diverse forests in East Africa, with more than 1,000 flowering plant species including 163 species of trees and 104 species of ferns.
Tourists can visit the park any time throughout the year, although conditions in the park are more difficult during the rainy season.
You will expect to have guided walks through the forest include a walk to a waterfall, and walks for monkey watching and birding.
There are an estimated 120 mammal species in the park, ten of which are primates and more than 45 of which are small mammal species.
