Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Kabale

4.9
#1 of 71 in Parks in Uganda
A World Heritage Site protecting a large proportion of the world's wild mountain gorillas, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park represents one of Uganda's oldest rainforests. Bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo and nearby neighbor to Rwanda, the park provides a home to a diverse population of plant and animal life, with one of the broadest ranges of vegetation in East Africa. Prepare yourself for a challenge if you go gorilla-tracking--although the sight of an endangered gorilla in its natural habitat will more than reward your efforts. If you're looking for something at a slower pace, the forest's 350 avian species provide ample bird-watching opportunities. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

  • It was astonishing when we jumped out of comfortable beds to have breakfast and then stride high the mountainous place to meet the rare species. It is a memory that can never be erased.  more »
  • My travel from Kabale to Ruhija was a friendly one and the UWA Ndego Gate helped give us the briefing and welcome remarks. Thank you  more »
  • We went Gorilla trekking in Bwindi with my son as part of our one week in Uganda and it was an amazing moment standing in front of Gorillas and seeing them in their home. Truly emotional moment!  more »
