      Bwindi North

      Incredible Eastern Mountain Gorillas

      The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a national park in Western Uganda home to more than 300 critically endangered mountain gorillas. Spending time with these incredibly sentient creatures is often the high point of a trip to Africa and an experience that cannot be forgotten. Tracking gorillas is very active and requires gorilla-viewing etiquette. The area is mountainous and heavily vegetated and all excursions are on foot. There is a 15-year-old age minimum to go on a gorilla trek. Lodging in the northern part of the park is in a safari camp setting, with generous tented-rooms, and families of gorillas who occasionally visit the camps. The northern part of the park also offers an opportunity to meet the Batwa people, the original dwellers of the ancient forest, whom anthropologists estimate have existed in the equatorial forests of Africa for 60,000 years or more. Take a day hike in the rainforest with Batwa guides, see how the Batwa lived and hunted and learn about medicinal plants. Hear ancient legends and traditional songs, watch energetic dances, and test your skill with a Batwa bow and arrow.
