Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Gorillas, excellent birding, and forest walks.
(9-hour drive from Kampala)

This is probably the most famous National Park (331 Sq. kms) with the remaining population of Mountain Gorillas, (About 450 animals left in the World!!) Half of the population live in this high-altitude rain forest together with about 400 Chimpanzees.

The birding is probably the best in the whole of the region with about 346 species recorded in the Park of whish 26 are Albertine rift endemics.
