Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Pictures coming soon!

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is located on the south-western part of Uganda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. It gets its name from 'Bwindi' translated to mean 'darkness.' A walk within the forest will reveal why this is so. Additionally, the park is renown for hosting half of the world's population of mountain gorillas at about 400 individuals, with 14 habituated groups, friendly to human interaction/tourism. Its impenetrability is also evident whilst tracking the primates as a certain fitness level is necessary due to the somewhat steep terrain.

Aside from mountain gorillas, the park also hosts 348 bird species including African green broadbill, Grauer's swamp warbler, turner's eremomela, chapin's flycatcher and shelly's crimson-wing; 220 butterfly species, 27 frog species, chameleons, geckos; more than 1,000 flower species including 104 fern species and 163 tree species and 120 mammal species including L' hoest's monkey, African elephant and chimpanzees.
