Set among the rolling hills of Uganda's Kisoro district, at the south western tip of the country, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is prime primate territory, and home to half of the world's remaining mountain gorilla population. With these great apes on the critically endangered list, Bwindi safaris take place in one of the few places in the world where you can trek with mountain gorillas (Rwanda and the
decidedly off-limits Democratic Republic of Congo being the only others). Visitors to Bwindi are assigned in small groups to 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 less than 900 mountain gorilla remaining in the whole world, the opportunity to track these animals in the wild is a genuinely unique experience. As well as gorilla trekking there is plenty more to keep guests entertained on a Bwindi holiday. There are over 350 species of birds, 310 butterflies and 200 trees to identify, and various scenic hikes and nature walks to enjoy.
