About
the
Trip.

4 days / 3 nights

Oct 22nd - 25th

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park covers a small area but packs a big punch in terms of wildlife conservation, most famously protecting an estimated 400 mountain gorillas. 

In addition to gorilla, the park boasts 120 mammal species including elephant and antelope, and over 350 species of bird. It is considered one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth and is among Uganda's oldest and most varied rainforests, dating back over 25,000 years and containing almost 400 species of plants. The park is scenically quite spectacular, full of lush bamboo forests and hardwoods. 

And, of course, the gorilla trekking experience is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will leave you in awe of these majestic creatures. But it's not just about the gorillas but the overall experience with the local tribes.
