ABOUT BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is inhabited by a population of about 340 individuals of Mountain Gorillas, which makes up almost half of all the mountain gorillas remaining in the world. The rest of the worldwide mountain gorilla population is in the nearby Virunga Mountains which is shared by Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Selected gorillas families have been habituated to human presence and the number of visitors is tightly controlled to prevent degradation of the habitat and risks to the gorillas.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is also a birding paradise, home to over 348 bird species. This area is one of Uganda’s best bird watching destinations. Proclaimed as a World Heritage Site, Bwindi is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world hosting unique and precious floral species. There's also a substantial chimpanzee population and research shows that Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the only forest in Africa where Gorillas and Chimpanzees live together.
