Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the western rift valley covering 331 sq/km. It is one of the largest natural forests in East Africa, supporting a large number of plants and animals not found elsewhere.

Three hundred forty-seven species of birds have been recorded in Bwindi; seven species are listed as endangered.
