Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is situated in the South Western Uganda. The park is part of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, and is situated along the Democratic Republic of Congo border next to the Virunga National Park and on the edge of the Albertine Rift. The Park is UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site and is one of the richest ecosystems in Africa.
This park inhabits a population of about 400 mountain gorillas which makes up almost half of all the mountain gorillas in the world. There are 11 species of primates, including chimpanzee, the monkey variants such as Hoest's, red-tailed and blue monkey, black and white colobus, and olive baboon. According to the recent survey, Bwindi has 346 species of birds and 200 species of butterflies.
Gorilla tracking is the major tourist attraction in this Park. Gorilla permit is a must for anyone wishing to go for gorilla trucking in this park. This is one of the ways the government is using to protect and prevent the degradation of this Park..
Seeing Gorillas in this place is a must for any one visiting the Park. However it requies patience as the tracking permits are controlled by Uganda Wildlife Authority. Therefore, to avoid disappointments, we recommend early booking (this is only confirmed after full payments of the Gorilla Permits.)
Every tourist who has ever visited Uganda will tell you Bwindi is a fabulous destination for Gorilla trucking and bird watching adventure.
There are over 346 species of birds registered in this place (Bwindi contains 90% of all Albertine Rift endemics, hard to experience in any other place in East Africa) and 200 species of butterflies.
Bird watching is one of the most fascinating activity in Bwindi National Park. The park has beautiful and colored birds with exciting butterflies.
