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.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park's biggest drawcard is undoubtedly its mountain gorillas. Sharing an ecosystem with Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable is a popular alternative due to its cheaper accommodations and cheaper gorilla permits.


While the park is most famous for its mountain gorillas, the park also acts as a sanctuary for chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, and a huge variety of bird life - 348 species and counting!


On the smaller side, the park is home to more than 220 species of butterfly and over 27 species of geckos, frogs, and chameleons.
