Gorilla Bwindi National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park

With over a 100 mammal species and close to 600 bird species, Queen Elizabeth National park, in the south western part of Uganda, is a diverse nature eco system with abundant wildlife and is one of the premier tourist attractions in Uganda.

The vegetation varies from savanah plains to dense, equitorial forests and swamps. The park is also home to Lake Edward and several rivers and tributaries.

Brief History of the Queen Elizabeth National Park
It is located in the far south-west of the country where Uganda, Rwanda and DRC (Congo) meet. Getting to Bwindi is an adventure in itself as you have to cross much of Uganda by road to get there. Permits are limited to 12 per day, many of which are purchased by tour operators. In the jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest live half the world's population of highly endangered Mountain Gorillas.Visiting them is one of the most emotional wildlife encounters you will ever experience.

This pocket of huge primeval forest in the Virunga Mountain range is one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth. It has an eco-system that defines the very essence of the continent and has therefore been designated as a World Heritage Site. The forest floor is damp and laden with leaf mould, matted vegetation and fallen vines, which serve to trip you up as you clamber up and down the slippery slopes in search of a glimpse of the elusive gorillas.
