Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in south-western Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley, habitat to almost half of the world’s surviving giant mountain gorillas.

The World Heritage-listed Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of East Africa’s most famous national parks, set over 331 square kilometres of improbably steep mountain rain-forest, the park is a habitat to an estimated 360 gorillas.

The park contains 120 species of mammal more than any of Uganda’s other national parks, several primate species such as chimpanzees, baboons and L’Hoest’s monkeys, duiker, bushbuck, African golden cats and the rare giant forest hog, as well as a host of birds and insect species.

For bird watchers it’s one of the most exciting destinations in the country, with almost 360 species, including 23 of the 24 endemic to the Albertine Rift and several endangered species, such as the African green broadbill. With a good guide, sighting daily totals of over 150 species is possible. On the greener side of the aisle, Bwindi harbours eight endemic plants.
