Gorilla flying package Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Bwindi was gazetted as a National Park in 1991 and declared a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site in 1994. It is considered one of Uganda's oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 320 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. Penetrate the impenetrable Bwindi forest for once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spot endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Join experienced game rangers and penetrate deep into the Uganda’s Impenetrable forests. Our safari trucks are an adventurous and inexpensive way to see the highlights.
