Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park Uganda gorilla safari destination is located in southwestern part of Uganda with thick vegetation as its name suggests. Every day when tourists go out for the famous mountain gorilla trekking adventure, the ranger guides have to cut vegetation for trackers to access the way to where mountain gorillas nested the previous night.

It is the true African jungle with droplets of the sun coming through the thick forest cover giving you a feeling of being in paradise with zero pollution from several emissions common to our daily environment. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1994 because of its rich diversity in hosting different flora and fauna and being home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas.

The park covers an area of 321 km2 all of which is forested with some areas being covered by bamboo and shrubs. The forest lies on steep slippery valleys with ridges and hilltops. The weather in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is chilly because of the immense canopy, you are advised to carry some warm clothing for evenings and long-sleeved shirts/trousers to wear while doing the mountain gorilla trekking activity.

For the ultimate Uganda safari experience for anyone who chooses to trek the mountain gorillas or search for birds, butterflies, or shrubs, you need to be in good physical condition to go up and down the terrain. It lies at an altitude between 1160m-2607m above sea level.
