Activities in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

The physical variation, biodiversity, natural beauty and fascinating cultures found in and around Bwindi make it a wonderful place to visit. While the average stay is only two or three nights and the primary reason to visit is to track the gorillas, there is much more to do and a longer stay is worthwhile.

Activities in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

In the south-west of Uganda, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park stretches from lowland forest up to a montane forest belt. Believed to have been a refuge for species during the last Ice Age, it is now famous for its population of wild Mountain Gorillas. 

The main activity in Bwindi is gorilla trekking, and it is easy to see why. The forest is home to almost half of all Mountain Gorillas found in the world today and the chance to get up close to these amazing animals is an experience worthy of the once-in-a-lifetime descriptor.

However, those who only come to Bwindi for gorilla trekking and leave soon afterwards risk missing out. If you take a little more time to explore the forest, you’ll discover the unique flora and fauna of the park, find the best hiking trails, and learn about the fascinating people who make the forest their home.

Explore Bwindi’s incredible biodiversity

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a place of incredible bio-diversity, including 10 primate species, 120 mammal species, and 220 species of butterfly, any of which are endemic to the park. 

Unfortunately, many of these species are globally threatened. Bwindi is an important front line in conservation efforts. Ecotourism activities, such as guided nature and wildlife tours, have been highlighted by UNESCO as one of the most important ways to support the future conservation of the park.
