Itinerary


  1. Visited Places:

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in southwestern Uganda, a magnificent verdant swathe across the steep ridges of the Albertine Rift Valley.

This ancient rainforest is one of the few in Africa to have flourished and a home to half of the world’s endangered population of mountain gorillas. Looking into the expressive brown eyes of these giants is surely the most exciting and poignant wildlife encounter Uganda has to offer! Apart from gorilla trekking tour, the park boasts of 90 mammal species, including 11 primates and prominent bird species. It is a treasure chest of flora and fauna with four gorilla groups currently available to be visited by only six persons per group on daily basis. However, strict rules have to be followed to prevent behavioral disturbances and transmission of diseases.
