Ecology & Wildlife

    A UNESCO world heritage site, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a dense rain forest in southwestern Uganda. The National Park is dominated by the Virunga mountain range and the landscape is dotted with waterfalls and lakes and with a high annual rainfall the rainforest is deserving of its name – Impenetrable. Bwindi is host to the highest concentration of primates on earth, including the majestic mountain gorilla, one of the rarest animals on the planet. It is estimated that 65% of the world’s surviving population of mountain gorillas, about 460, live within Bwindi’s boundaries. A look into the deep and expressive brown eyes of these giants is surely one of the most unforgettable wildlife encounters that Africa has to offer.

    Bwindi is also home to the Batwa Pygmies, who are the oldest inhabitants of the Great Lakes region of Central Africa. These hunter gatherers, whose existence was first recorded over 4000 years ago, have a rich, deep culture and history that they are very happy to share. A visit to their community is a unique cultural experience unlike any other and will assist in help conserve their community and way of life.
