Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located in South-Western Uganda, covering parts of Rukungiri, Kisoro, and Kabale Districts. This is the richest forest in Uganda, in terms of the number of plant species, as the area is one of the few large expanses of forest in East Africa where lowland and montane communities merge. The valley bottoms contain a dense ground cover of herbs, vines, and shrubs with only a few trees hence its name, the impenetrable forest. Around half of the world’s population of the endangered Mountain Gorillas reside here as well as 7 other primate species including the beautiful L’Hoest’s Monkey. There are also several endangered species of birds present. Tracking the Gorillas can be challenging but is always offset by the reward of reaching and spending time with these incredible animals.
