The Batwa Trail is a new tourism attraction that was recently launched in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. The tour takes visitors through the lifestyle of the Batwa forest peoples before they were evicted from the national park in the early 1990s. The forest used to be the home for the Batwa people, where they solely depended on the forest economy through hunting and fruit gathering.

The tour which takes about four hours is guided by the Batwa themselves. The Batwa Trail is such an incredible experience as it takes you through the thick forests of Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. The Batwa guides make several demonstrations to the clients during the tour such as showcasing how they used to harvest herbs for medicine and wild honey; their old ways of fetching water using a bamboo made "mugs" and construction demo of grass thatched huts they used to live in. The tour ends with a culture show by the Batwa community at the entrance of the Garama cave, which used to the ceremonial place for Batwa cultural leaders. The cave was such a symbolic place in the Batwa culture and you will be proud to be part of this experience.
