Gorilla Safaris Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Bwindi is the home of almost a half of the mountain gorillas left in the whole world making it the homeland of the awesome mighty and amazing creatures, the Mountain Gorillas.
It is located in the southwestern part of Uganda at the edge of the western rift valley, it’s called impenetrable because of its incredibly thick trees that are really so dump, the forest is always so cold and at most times it’s always so misty in the interior and features almost over 400 different tree species.
The predominant influence of Bwindi safaris is Mountain Gorilla trekking and it is the leading activity that generates more income in the tourism industry of Uganda.
The forest hosts gorilla groups that can literally be tracked with over 120 mammals such as baboons, chimpanzees etc. On your Gorilla trekking safari you must choose a best trekking company that will make your safari an adventure to remember.
The topography of this forest is awesomely rugged with steep hills and the highest elevation is called Rwamunyonyi Hill, Though trekking is done all year round most people prefer it during the months of June to September and December to February when the nation experiences dry seasons since its so cold in Bwindi so it makes life a lot easier.
This incredible site has two main towns Buhoma and Nkuringo that have an extremely impressive array of beautiful accommodations sites like Chameleon Hill, Gorilla mist Camp and so on and so forth
