Commence your adventure in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Possibly Uganda’s most valuable asset, this is Africa’s oldest, rarest and most diverse ecosystem. Home to half of the world’s population of Mountain Gorillas, this area is a sanctuary for these endangered creatures. Accompanied by a patient ranger, embark on a trek through the Bwindi forest in search of gorillas, as you learn about their behavior from your knowledgeable guides, whilst keeping your eyes out for precious wildlife. Come face to face with a troop in the perfect isolation of their jungle habitat and observe their charismatic and inquisitive mannerisms. Unlike any other wildlife encounter, your unique experience with a creature so rare and wild is truly unforgettable.
Meet the Batwa Pygmies in a fascinating tribal experience. Now known as “The Keepers of the Forest,” this tribe are the original human dwellers of the Bwindi Forest Reserve. It is estimated they have existed in equatorial forests for around 60,000 years. Gain an educational insight into their lives as they demonstrate hunting, gathering, harvesting and music skills. Led by the Pygmies, go on a guided nature walk to discover more about the surrounding environment and the wildlife that inhabits. This is an eye-opening opportunity to broaden your understanding through participating in their lifestyle.
