Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

This park is positioned in the Southwestern part of Uganda and covers an area of about 331square kilometers. It takes 8-10 hours to reach the park through Mbarara, Kabale and Kanungu to Buhoma. The park has both lowland and montane rainforest with thick bushes of herbs, vines and vegetation, making the Park looks impenetrable. The forest is a home to many rare species and the most common one is the few remaining mountain gorillas in the world. More than a half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas is found in Bwindi impenetrable forest about 400 out of 880 individuals.

The forest is a home to over 120 species of mammals including 20 forest elephants, 310 species of butterflies (including two endangered species of Swallowtails), and 10 species of primates including the chimpanzee, red tailed and blue monkeys, Colobus monkeys and baboons. Bwindi is the only park in east and central Africa where chimpanzees and gorillas co-exist in the same environment. The park is also a home to over 360 specie of bird and it’s regarded as a bird’s heaven.
