Bwindi Impenetrable Forest


There are only 700 mountain gorillas left in the world


The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a national park situated in the west of Uganda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. It encompasses an ancient and vast stretch of lush rainforest that covers some 330 sq km and rises from 1,100m to 2,400m. The verdant green trees and plants are dripping with moisture and home to an array of birds, butterflies, primates and more - the biological diversity is unrivalled in most places on Earth!

The highlight of any trip to Bwindi is the chance to see the endangered mountain gorillas that live high up in the reserve. This involves a challenging uphill walk through muddy rainforest but the reward is immeasurable - come face-to-face with a gorilla family staring right back at you through the bush. After all, they are close relatives with 97% of our biological make-up.

There are also a large number of chimpanzees in the forest so you can track these primates - our closest relatives - on a guided tour. Bwindi is unique in that it is the only African forest where these two primates live side-by-side. It really does offer a truly unbelievable and exclusive encounter with gorillas and chimps.
