However, 348 bird species and 220 butterfly species can be found within its 331-square-kilometer expanse.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – even the Word Bwindi means darkness, and yet it is the furthest thing from reality, it is an incredibly Beautiful Park filled with an abundance of life. Home to Mountain Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Colobus Monkeys. Pottos, Bushbabies, rare cats, Forest Elephants with their extra toe, straight tusks.
The Mountain Gorillas attract most Visitors, but it is also one of the most Biodiverse Forests in Africa, add to that a Premier African Birding Destination, a Hikers Paradise aided by its pleasant temperatures.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is not home to Mountain Gorillas. Still, it was the home of the Batwa People who were the First People of the Forest that lived in harmony with nature, leaving a small ecological footprint yet became Conservation Refugees when Bwindi Forest became an official park and Gorilla Sanctuary in 1991. Today you can experience and see the Forest through their eyes on the Batwa Experience in the Buhoma area of Bwindi Forest.

CNN recognizes what we have always known:
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a park that we are very passionate about, including in the parks preservation and cons\ervation that Gorilla Tourism pays for and the benefits that the local community receives. Without Gorilla Tourism in Bwindi Forest, the park by now would be a fraction of the present size.
The park is an island in a sea of surrounding people, all seeking to eke out a livelihood. Tourism and Eco-Tourism, in particular, is the key to preserving this park, its beauty, primates, wildlife, birds, and the surrounding communities.
We Know Bwindi Impenetrable Forest well, we have trekked Mountain Gorillas there, traversed the park via its scenic Trails, we have even biked in the Forest. Mostly, however, we bring visitors on a Gorilla Safari to the park. We act as a sort matchmaker setting a date for your encounter with the Gentle Giants of the Forest. The actual meeting is up to the Gorillas. However, 99% of our Clients see it as the event of a lifetime.
