Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Home to half of the world's remaining Mountain Gorilla population; Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is prime primate territory. With Mountain Gorilla on the critically endangered list, it's also one of the few places in the world where you can trek with these great apes (Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo being the only others).

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Mountain Gorillas can grow up to five and a half feet tall and weigh up to 440 pounds, making for a truly magnificent (and very large) sight to behold.
  • Almost as impressive as the primates are the stunning panoramic views found through the trees at the height of the forest.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Safaris: The Detail

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is set amongst the rolling hills of Uganda's Kisoro district, at the south western tip of the country.

In small groups visitors to Bwindi will be assigned a gorilla family to track, and will then set out with a guide to explore the mountainous forests in search of these gentle giants. With only 800 Mountain Gorilla remaining in the whole world, the opportunity to help search and track these animals in the wild is an extremely unique experience.

As well as gorilla trekking there is plenty more to keep guests entertained in Bwindi. There are over 350 species of birds, 310 butterflies and 200 trees to identify, and various scenic hikes and nature walks to enjoy. There is also the chance to spot an endangered and amazingly distinctive golden monkey or two.
