    3 Days Gorilla Trekking Safari in Uganda

    Uganda Gorilla Trekking Safari:This 3days Gorilla Trekking Safari in Uganda with Mum and Dad Uganda Tours will certainly take you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park a home to the endangered mountain gorillas. There are only around 1000 of these magnificent creatures left in the world with around 1/3 of those in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Furthermore, the reset are shared by Mgahinga, virunga national park of DRC and Volcanoes national park of Rwanda. Trek the gorillas in their natural setting and then meet with the Batwa pygmy who have lived near the bwindi park for over 500 years. They will not only entertain you with their songs but also dances plus they show you their hunting and medical skills.

    Bwindi Impenetrable Forest ecosystem is exceptionally high in biodiversity, with rich flora and fauna species. This lush forested area hosts some of the richest tree, small mammal, bird, butterfly, reptilian, and moth populations. However, the park is known as an ancient rain-forest said to have survived the last ice age.

    Bwindi is a birding paradise, home to 348 bird species. The area is especially one of Uganda’s best bird watching destinations supporting nearly all of the Albertine Rift endemic species found in Uganda.  Meanwhile, Bwindi is the only park in the whole world where the chimps and gorillas co-exist in the same setting.
