Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

The forest they call impenetrable; Bwindi is the world’s greatest habitat for the critically endangered mountain gorilla. Home to an estimated 400 of 880 mountain gorillas left on the planet, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a very special place indeed. Perhaps Uganda’s best known wildlife paradise and what draws people to this country more than anything else, these vegetated hills are thick with tangled rainforest and alive with not only silverbacks and their families, but it is one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. Sometimes called “Place of Darkness”, it is not easily accessed on foot and anyone embarking on a gorilla trekking safari should be prepared for a very rewarding hike, which is carefully navigated by expert guides.

At US$600 per person for a permit to see the gorillas, Bwindi is far more affordable than neighbouring Rwanda’s Virunga National Park, and it is one of the most extraordinary experiences of a lifetime. The gorillas move throughout the national park and on any given day, a gorilla trek could take between one and eight hours, and the hike can be challenging with Bwindi’s steep elevation. The most magnificent result of this hike is an hour of quality time sitting among a family of rare mountain gorillas as they  explore, forage, and investigate in close proximity to you. This safari experience is very much worth the effort!
