Gorilla Experience 2 Nights / 3 Days
The tour takes you in a search of the rare mountain gorillas at Bwindi National Park. 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. About half the world’s population of 600 mountain gorillas reside in Bwindi.
Along with the gorillas, there are nine other species of primates including chimpanzee, blue monkey, red-tail monkey, L’hoest’s monkey, black and white colobus, potto, Demidoff’s and needle-clawed galago. Three hundred forty-seven species of birds have been recorded in Bwindi; seven species are listed as endangered. Species of particular interest include the Kivu ground thrush, white-bellied robin chat, red-throated alethe, collared apallis, short-tailed warbler, yellow-eyed black flycatcher, Rwenzori batis, blue-headed sunbird, strange weaver and the Shelley’s crimsonwing. Over 200 species of butterflies have also been recorded here.
