Bwindi Impenetrable National Park: A Hub for Gorilla Safaris

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, located in the southwest of Uganda, is a remarkable ecological wonder. This magnificent wilderness straddles the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, forming part of the breathtaking Albertine Rift. Covering an area of 321 square kilometres, Bwindi is a biologically diverse region, recognized for its rich fauna and flora. The park is home to approximately 120 mammal species, including ten primates, and over 45 small mammal species.

One of the most iconic inhabitants of Bwindi is the mountain gorilla, an endangered species. The park shelters around 340 of these majestic creatures, accounting for nearly half of the world’s mountain gorilla population. Notably, there are no mountain gorillas in captivity.
