Bwindi national park is one of Africa’s most popular primate destinations home to over half the population of surviving mountain gorillas in the world. The name “Bwindi” is a local Runyakitara word meaning “impenetrable” due its dense extensions of bamboo intertwined among the forest hardwoods along with a thick ground cover of different kinds of plant species that make it hard to explore on foot. Nature lovers and adventure seekers from across the globe travel to southwestern Uganda for a chance to encounter the gorillas in this magnificent primeval forest recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Activities– Gorilla trekking, Bird watching, Mount hiking, Nature walks and visits to local community visits to the Batwa pygmies and Bakiga.
