I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy.
Trekking Gorilla’s in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, one of the most biologically diverse forests in Africa and one of the oldest dating back 25,000 years. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to around 340 highly endangered Mountain Gorillas, which is more than half the world’s population.
Sitting face to face with a 160kg silverback in the impenetrable rainforest is truly a once in a lifetime experience and is the focal point of all of my trips to Uganda. Bwindi is home to around 350 bird species of which 23 are endemic to the Albertine Rift and at least 14 are found nowhere else in Uganda.
A group of Trackers and Ranger guide us up and down the steep rainforest covered slopes of the National Park. Depending on the movements of the gorillas, we spend 2 to 5 hours trekking in the virgin forest.
