Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is known for its Mountain Gorillas and the possibility for tourists to trek them. Groups of gorillas have been habituated to people. The park is 331 sq km and consists of thick rain-forest, in local language (Lukiga) Bwindi actually means impenetrable. However a trek here is well worth the effort considering the beautiful nature and possibility to see the Mountain Gorillas. Gorilla Trekking offers you the unique opportunity to meet the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. You will experience a trek through the forest and finally spend a magical hour with the gorillas. Take a look at our page about Gorilla Trekking in Uganda to learn more about this experience.


Other options in the area is to go for a guided forest walk, a walk with birding focus or to make a visit to the Batwa people. The Batwa people traditionally stayed in the forest of Bwindi, making their living from what the forest could offer. Today they are staying on the edge of the national park and special Batwa experiences where you learn about their culture and way of life has developed to support the communities.


Bwindi can be cold especially in the morning & night. The annual mean temperatures range is 7°C to 20°C. Hence warm clothing are required, plus wet weather gear because Bwindi receives up to 2390mm of rain every year. This is centered on during 2 wet seasons, short rains in March- May & heavy rainfall in the months of September-November. In Bwindi, rain often falls as long hours of soft drizzle, instead of short tropical deluge.
