Getting face to face with the gorilla is an amazing and memorable experience as you watch them feed and interact with their families.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is divided into four sections that is Buhoma, Ruhija, Nkuringo and Rushaga. Some of the families are Mubare with nine members, Busingye with 9 members, Nshonga with 18 members, Oruzogo with 23 members and Nkuringo with 19 members. The gorilla families are led by a silver buck and it’s identifiable since it’s the biggest in the family with silver stripe.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is Africa’s top tourist destination for mountain Gorilla tracking and viewing, with a spectacular vegetation cover, a great view, culture, and tour activities. 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 a further 120 mammals, including several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes. There are around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics.
