Introducing Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Bwindi National Park (331 sq km), aka the Impenetrable Forest, is home to half of the world’s known mountain gorillas, about 330 of them – there’s just one Bwindi gorilla for every 20 million people! Penetrating the Impenetrable Forest is no picnic, as the terrain is steep and the foliage unforgiving, but what a reward. All the hardships are forgotten in an instant with the first glimpse of the gorillas in their mountain kingdom. No bars, no cars – this is not a safari park but their world, and we are their privileged guests. Seeing the gorillas is one of Africa’s most memorable experiences: don’t miss it.
Deep in the southwest of Uganda, the park is real rainforest and it rains a hell of a lot, so come prepared.
