Bwindi Forest Impenetrable National Park
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. The forest protects a higher degree half of the worlds remaining endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda. In addition, it is very famous for mountain gorilla safari trekking. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rain forests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 480 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.
It also harbors several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees. Bush elephants and antelopes are also inhabitants of the biological rainforest. There are around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics.
