Bwidi Impenetrable Forest
 

Bwidi Impenetrable Forest

Situated in the southwestern corner of the country, Bwindi Forest is home to 330 of the 600 mountain gorillas left in the world. Some of the families have been habituated and in small groups it is possible to visit them in their natural habitat within the forest.

Experienced trackers and armed rangers lead the way up through dense undergrowth and inhospitable volcanic terrain. The search can take thirty minutes or up to eight hours although the gorillas are usually found after two to four hours.

For clients there is a minimum age of fifteen, and it is very important that under no circumstances must the gorillas be touched by humans. This is to protect the animals from communicable diseases to which they are very susceptible.

Bwindi also contains seven other primate species and offers interesting and more relaxing walks for visitors around the lower levels of the forest. There are over 350 species of birds and over 200 species of butterflies in the park as well as coffee and tea plantations and the friendly village tribes of Bakiga and Bafumbira nearby.
