Covering 32,000 ha, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of the biggest areas in East Africa with Afromontane lowland forest extending to the montane forest belt. Perched on the eastern edge of the great Albertine Rift Valley and known to be a Pleistocene refugium, the forest reserve is a biodiversity hub with probably East Africa’s greatest population of tree species for its altitude.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is found in the south-western tip of Uganda, and has become a popular stronghold for the country’s gorilla tours since 1993. The park boasts of a minimum 450 mountain gorillas, which is nearly half of the entire world population of the mountain gorilla species – estimated to be 1000. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park features at least 16 habituated gorilla families, and a few other families still under habituation which renders it the only park with the such huge population of this species of gorillas in a single destination among the other three individual parks that inhabit mountain gorillas.
