Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Kabale

4.7
#1 of 281 in Wildlife in Uganda
A World Heritage Site protecting a large proportion of the world's wild mountain gorillas, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park represents one of Uganda's oldest rainforests. Bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo and nearby neighbor to Rwanda, the park provides a home to a diverse population of plant and animal life, with one of the broadest ranges of vegetation in East Africa. Prepare yourself for a challenge if you go gorilla-tracking--although the sight of an endangered gorilla in its natural habitat will more than reward your efforts. If you're looking for something at a slower pace, the forest's 350 avian species provide ample bird-watching opportunities. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

  • What a great experience to see the mountain gorillas and contribute to the community in a very well set up way. The rangers were very kind and knowledgeable, after a total of 6 hours hiking to locate Christmas (silverback) it took an other 2 hours to hike back. Great day!
  • Had a gorilla trekking experience. It is pricey but worth every penny. This is the best way to see animals (in their home habitat) and you get to contribute to their conservation via your park fees. Entirely safe, well organized and passionate rangers at your service.
