Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Western Rift Valley, and is accessible only on foot.
Situated in the Virunga mountains, journey through its mist-shrouded forests and diverse vegetation in search of Bwindi’s magnificent mountain gorillas.
Whilst the 14 habituated mountain gorilla groups draw many to the park, it also claims one of the most varied collections of mammals, 120 species rich, as well as 350 bird species. Encounter baboons and chimpanzees, elephants and antelope, 200 species of butterfly, and 14 bird species seen nowhere else in Uganda.
The most prominent species here due to the high numbers and endangerment status are the mountain gorilla, where males can be in excess of 500 pounds and silverbacks may be over 6ft.
Other mammal species are mostly small forest species, such as six species of antelope including bushbuck and several species of duiker.
When thinking about birds, you may find; African broadbill, Black bee-eater, Black-billed turaco, Black-faced rufous warbler, Western green tinkerbird Yellow-streaked greenbul, Olive-breasted greenbul, Regal sunbird, Grauer’s broadbill, Blue-headed sunbird and Many-coloured bush-shrike.
