5 Days Primate Affordable Adventure Safari | Uganda Luxury Lodge Tour

The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a magnificent green swathe of dense rainforest, so ancient it survived the last ice age. Bwindi National Park covers 330 sq km of this rainforest and spans altitudes of 1,100 metres to

2,400 metres - a dramatic landscape of steep hills, narrow gorges and streams tumbling down waterfalls. A proclaimed World Heritage site, Bwindi is one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth. Its unique, precious flora sustains roughly half of the world's population of mountain gorillas - believed to number just 600. There's also a substantial chimpanzee population and Bwindi is the only forest in Africa in which these two apes live together.

Apart from gorilla tracking, there are a number of other hikes and trails within the park. As you travel along, accompanied by an experienced guide, you will learn about the animals, birds, butterflies, trees and plants in the forest. This is a great way to pass the time while you wait for your pre-arranged date with a gorilla.
