Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Key Facts

Size: 321 km2

Altitude: 1,160m- 2,607m above sea level

Bwindi was gazetted as a National Park in 1991 and declared UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site in 1994.The Mubare Gorilla group was the first to become available for tourism in Uganda in April 1993. Nine groups are now habituated for tourism and one for research.

Spread over a series of steep ridges and valleys, Bwindi is the source of five major rivers which flow into Lake Edward.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.

This biologically diverse region also provides shelter to 120 mammals, including several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes, around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics.

The neighboring towns of Buhoma and Nkuringo both have an impressive array of luxury lodges, countryside bandas and budget campsites, as well as restaurants, craft stalls and guiding services. You have the opportunity to discover the local Bakiga and Batwa Pygmy cultures through performances, workshops and village walks.

It costs USD 600 per day per person for a gorilla permit. You can get the gorilla tracking permits in Kampala (the capital of Uganda) at the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) headquarters. It is possible to make an international booking for permits using email direct with UWA but they do not accept credit cards so it gets a bit complicated. Permit bookings must be made and fully paid a month in advance.
