CNN names Bwindi Impenetrable Forest one of the 5 Best Parks in Africa. This ancient Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its natural wonders and rugged beauty, the only Park where Gorillas and Chimpanzees coexist. Home to more habituated Gorilla Families for visitors than any other park in Rwanda or Congo.
The only Park in Africa where you can spend 4-hours with a Gorilla Family on the one-of-a-kind Gorilla Habituation Experience with only four visitors to a Gorilla Group. Bwindi I also the Park with 600 USD Gorilla Permits instead of 1500 USD in Rwanda.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – the World Impenetrable can be misleading. For thousands of years, the original people of the Forest, the Batwa People, lived here. You can still experience the Forest through the eyes of the Batwa Pygmies on an extended visit to an adjacent forest to the Park.
Since the early 90s, the Forest has become penetrable, and each day about 150 plus visitors can experience a Gorilla Family up close. The gorilla treks vary from easy to a bit on the tough side, our oldest clients were 79, and they enjoyed themselves even though they trekked the most robust family in the Park, the Nkuringo family.

CNN names Bwindi Impenetrable Forest one of the 5 Best Parks in Africa – Our Take on CNN’s Pick:
We are excited about the recognition that CNN has bestowed upon this Park. A park where Gorilla Permits are 600 USD compared to Rwanda’s 1500. Does a 1500 USD price mean a better gorilla Trek? Not at all; Uganda has kept its sanity and believes in making its natural resources available to budget, moderate, and upmarket Travel. Not just the wealthy that Rwanda is attempting to appeal to.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is more than gorillas. You can take many hikes here, cultural encounters, a merely excellent community hospital, and cultural encounters, including the Batwa Pygmies. But the Forest is also a starting point for the safari to various sites. Others \ with mountain gorillas. Places such as Mgahinga Gorilla Park, Lake Mutanda and Lake Bunyonyi, and Queen Elizabeth Park., The Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon, Kibale Forest, the Primate Capital of East Africa. Further afield are the famed Murchison Falls Park, Kidepo Valley Park, Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, and the Ssese Islands – sandy beach tropical islands on Lake Victoria.
There are other recognitions after CNN recognized Uganda as one of the Best Destinations in the World in 2016. CNN Travel also recognized Kidepo Valley Park as one of Africa’s best parks.
