1 Day Uganda Gorilla Tour

1 Day Uganda Gorilla Tour

A 1-day short gorilla tour to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda offers an opportunity to visit a park that hosts half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas. The other half of the population resides in Uganda’s Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Virunga National Park. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage site, renowned for its lush, dense forests and the incredible variety of wildlife that inhabits them. This immersive experience allows you to witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, located in southwestern Uganda at the edge of the East African Rift Valley, became a full national park in 1994. The park boasts an ancient rain forest estimated to be over 25,000 years old, housing a diverse array of flora and fauna. Among its 324 tree species, 10 are found exclusively in Uganda.

The park is home to around 120 mammal species, including forest antelopes, elephants, baboons, chimpanzees, giant forest hogs, and buffaloes. Additionally, about 350 bird species and 200 species of butterflies call Bwindi home. The park’s main attraction, however, is its mountain gorillas; approximately half of the world’s remaining population resides in Bwindi.

Out of the 36 gorilla families in Bwindi, 17 are habituated and open to tourism, offering visitors the chance to partake in one of the world’s most captivating wildlife experiences. Bwindi is divided into four sectors—Nkuringo, Rushaga, Ruhijja, and Buhoma—each with its own habituated gorilla groups, office, and warden.

The park is a premier destination for gorilla trekking due to its large number of gorilla groups, exceeding the options available in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park and Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Gorilla permits in Bwindi cost $800.

For those interested in cultural experiences, the park offers opportunities to visit the Batwa pygmies. These indigenous people were forest dwellers for thousands of years before being relocated to make way for gorilla conservation. The Batwa now share their rich cultural heritage through music, dance, and drama.

Bwindi’s climate can be cold, particularly during the rainy season and at night. The coldest months are June and July. While the park can be visited year-round, most visitors prefer to avoid the rainy season, which runs from March to May and September to November, due to slippery trails and dense vegetation.

Beyond gorilla trekking, Bwindi offers visitors the chance to spot other primates, mammals, reptiles, and butterflies. The park is also a prime birding destination in Uganda. Yet, none of these experiences can rival the ultimate wildlife adventure of watching mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.
