Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Kabale

4.8
A World Heritage Site protecting a large proportion of the world's wild mountain gorillas, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park represents one of Uganda's oldest rainforests. Bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo and nearby neighbor to Rwanda, the park provides a home to a diverse population of plant and animal life, with one of the broadest ranges of vegetation in East Africa. Prepare yourself for a challenge if you go gorilla-tracking--although the sight of an endangered gorilla in its natural habitat will more than reward your efforts. If you're looking for something at a slower pace, the forest's 350 avian species provide ample bird-watching opportunities. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

  • Great opportunity to walk through the real jungle. Amazing experience. Note that you need a guide there (and guards with guns) since it's a really wild place that you have to know well to be safe.
  • The mountain Gorilla tracking, so awesome. Wonderful service providers. One day in the wild, it keeps you yearning for another trip to the Park.
