Gorillas & Chimpazees in Uganda

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its one of Uganda's oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. This Park isa home to an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. This biologically diverse region also provides shelter to a further 120 mammals, including several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes. There are around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics.
Kibale Forest national park on ther hand is a home to Chimpanzees, It's one of Uganda's ever green forest that attracts 1000's of tourist annually.

Discovering Uganda

The Ishasha Sector is actually today very famously because of its mystifying population of the tree-climbing lions that are a very exceptional attraction and as well one of the major highlights for which most guests visit this park. The Lions are normally seen lazily lying up within the branches of the huge fig trees staring down at the numerous Uganda Kobs that are graze in the open Ishasha plains – and these are actually the main prey to these lions. In case you ever find yourself being chased by a lion, choosing to climb up into the trees as a way to escape from it will actually not help much especially within Queen Elizabeth National Park since these Lions have the ability to climb up into the trees. Actually they are commonly seen sleeping on branches in the afternoon as they digest their food after lunch.

Exploring Western Uganda

Crater lakes shade the map of Queen Elizabeth national park dotted, the crater lakes are found along the crater trail in western Uganda; however, the Crater Lake trail also covers Kibale Forest Park and others on the foot hills of Mountain Rwenzori. Actually, you will not know when you are along the crater trail, but the number of craters you see will surely show you that you are along the crater trail.
Quite a number of tourist activities can be done with in the crater lakes region of Katwe; hiking, nature walks, biking, boating and reed boating and fishing among the rest. These crater lakes are defined as extinct, however some are still ejecting some bad smelling sulphorous gases, so there might happen an eruption. There are mainly three major crater lakes in Queen Elizabeth national park; Katwe Crater Lake where salt is excavated, Bunyaruguru Crater fields on the Kichwamba escarpment, and Ndali-Kasenda Crater Fields nearer to Kibale National Park. More crater lakes are found in Fort Portal and not forgeting Lake Bunyonyi in the fur west "Uganda's deepest Lake" famous for bird watching.
