Get to Know Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

One of the world's most biologically diverse regions, Bwindi is also one of Africa's best places to trek to see the endangered mountain gorilla

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Virunga mountains on the Rwandan side are the two best places to see the endangered mountain gorilla.

Bwindi covers only 330 square kilometres, but is home to almost half the remaining wild mountain gorilla population. This Unesco World Heritage Site is a jumble of dense tropical rain forests, steep hills and cascading waterfalls. It has a magnificent diversity of fauna and flora, including a wide variety of primate species, birds and butterflies. If you're a birder keen to find the endemic birds species of the Albertine Rift, Bwindi offers you a chance to find 32 of them.
