Details of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Uganda’s answer to the more famous Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park shares an ecosystem with the neighbouring park.

With gorilla trekking permits slightly cheaper than in Rwanda, Uganda is fast becoming a popular alternative to the more developed nation. In addition to the mountain gorillas, another eleven species of primate call the park home and can be seen. The park is also home to forest elephants.

Another huge draw of the park is its superb bird-watching, with more than 350 species of bird available including 14 that can only be seen in Uganda.
