Bwindi Impenetrable Forest


Shoebill


Uganda, whose great natural beauty and diversity led to it being christened ‘The Pearl of Africa’. An incomparable fusion of East African savannah and West African jungle, famed for its rare mountain gorillas which are best visited from June to September.


QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK Home to a phenomenal abundance of wildlife, including rare aquatic sitatunga, the pouting shoebill and the world’s largest concentration of hippos, QENP is Uganda’s most popular reserve, boasting over 600 species of birds and some 100 species of mammals.


KIBALE FOREST NATIONAL PARK Home to the highest concentration of primates in the world, the rainforests of Kibale cover a rich landscape of lakes, marshes and grasslands. This spectacular national park is a haven for 12 different species of primate. The park’s most famous residents are the 500 or so chimpanzees that are a regular feature of any hike.


BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST In the primeval forests of Virunga Mountains rests the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest one of the largest natural forests in East Africa. Home to over 50% of the world’s remaining population of mountain gorillas, it is an area of natural diversity and one of the best places to experience a face to face encounter with these inspiring primates.


CLOUDS MOUNTAIN GORILLA LODGE, BWINDI Set deep in the misty mountains of southwestern Uganda, this lodge rests high on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Built in partnership with local communities and the Ugandan Wildlife Authority, the lodge offers 10 stone cottages and is the ideal base to track the less accessible Nkuringo group of gorillas.
