Bwindi: an ancient highland forest

Views: 580 Visited: Oct 2013 Reviewed: Dec 02, 2013

Bwindi is an ancient highland forest in south western Uganda and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a sanctuary for approximately half of the world’s total population of mountain gorillas (around 400 according to the 2011 census results), and is also the only place where mountain gorillas and Chimpanzees co-exist. It also boasts over 320 bird species and many plants, trees and insects that are endemic to the area, as well as being the ancestral forest home of one of the world’s most ancient forest people – the batwa.
For the purposes of planning an itinerary, Bwindi can be split into north and south with the best accommodation choices centered around the villages of Buhoma and Nkuringo respectively. Both destinations are excellent choices, but the southern side is more peaceful and remote.
