Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in South western Uganda is the most sought after world class tourist destination as it harbours more than a half of the world’s surviving mountain gorillas listed as critically endangered species. Recognised by UNESCO as a world Heritage sitein 1994, Bwindi was since 1942 a forest reserve before it was elevated to a national park status in 1991.
It covers 321Km2 characterized by tangled vegetation covering steepy slippery valleys and high drought ridges. Its ever chilly weather and challenging terrain offers a suitable environment which harbours our closest cousins. A hike through one of the Africa’s most ancient rain forests in search of the endangered Mountain Gorillas, ranks among the world’s vital wildlife encounters.
