Terms & Conditions
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in the southwestern part of Uganda on the rim of the Rift Valley. The hillsides which are mist-covered are sheltered by one of the ancient and very biologically varied rainforests in Uganda that date back to more than 25,000 years, comprising of about 400 varied plant species. More notably, this “impenetrable forest” in addition protects a predictable 320 population of mountain gorillas – approximately half of the population in the world, among which are a number of habituated groups, that can be tracked by visitors.Bwindi is habitat for more than half the world’s population of Mountain Gorillas. actually, there are over 300 mountain gorillas living here.
Gorilla devotees for Uganda safaris from different corners of the world to enjoy this Ultimate Safari in Uganda – Mountain Gorilla tours/tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.The word “Bwindi” means “darkness” and taking a hike this magnificent forest will certainly unveil to you the reason why the forest was named so. You will as well be in a position to fast tell why actually the forest is also regarded as Impenetrable. One requires being really physically fit to take part in this mountain gorilla tracking/trekking adventure because it may involve climbing the steep terrain.
In addition to the endangered impressive mountain gorillas, there are also 346 bird species and more than 200 butterfly species, about 324 species of trees, ten of which are only found in this areas in the whole of Uganda. This is really a destination to explore. Because there are few habituated Gorillas living here (gorillas that have been trained to withstand human presence and not likely to attack), actually the time offered to see them is limited and so are the permits which currently are offered at a cost of $500 per individual. No person ever complains after spending some time with the fascinating Mountain Gorillas in Uganda within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, which is among the most stunning rainforest anyone will ever come across.
