This 4 Days Gorilla Tour Double Visit safari in Uganda includes an additional gorilla trekking adventure in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is situated on the edge of the Rift Valley in southwest Uganda. One of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, dating back more than 25,000 years, and home to around 400 different plant species protects the mist-covered mountains. More significantly, this “impenetrable forest” also safeguards 480 mountain gorillas, or roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups that can be observed by tourists. More than half of the mountain gorillas in the world live in Bwindi. Mountain Gorilla excursions and tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is the Ultimate Safari in Uganda, attracting tourists from all over the world. Bwindi is a term for a forest that meaning “darkness,” and exploring this wonderful woodland on foot will show you why. Also, you’ll be able to quickly determine why the forest is genuinely regarded as impenetrable. To take part in this mountain gorilla tracking and trekking trip, one needs to be in reasonable physical condition because it may involve traversing the difficult terrain.
4 Days Gorilla Tour Double Visit, Aside from the critically endangered and spectacular mountain gorillas, there are 346 bird species, more than 200 butterfly species, and about 324 tree species, 10 of which are unique to this region in all of Uganda. Indeed, this is a place worth visiting. Due to the small number of habituated gorillas living here—gorillas that have been educated to coexist with humans and are unlikely to attack—both the time allotted for seeing them and the availability of permits, which are now available for $500 per person, are genuinely limited. Nobody ever complains after spending time with these incredibly intriguing mountain gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, one of the most breathtaking rainforests they’ve ever seen.
Bwindi Forest National Park is approximately an 8 hour or 9 hour drive from Entebbe by road and just 1 hour away by chartered flights. Usually the first and last days of Uganda gorilla tours are reserved solely for traveling and a few other minor activities along the way. The journey is quite long especially when you are traveling by road but definitely worth it after when you experience a close encounter with the mountain gorillas in its forests. There is really a lot to the place being one of the most popular safari parks in Uganda, and I’m sure you’ll see it when you travel.
