You can do gorilla tracking, bird watching, and learn about the culture and community here. A private vehicle or tour can transport you to this place. It is worth staying at the park several days as it takes time to get here on challenging roads....More

Amazing place regardless if you are there for the gorillas (do go gorilla trekking, it was amazing!!!), the forest elephants, the abundant bird and plant life, or for an awesome trek through an impenetrable forest. The rangers and guides were great, very friendly.

It was worth the 10 hour drive to/from Kampala and every muddy, slippery step! Bwindi is really gorgeous - the mountains/hills/trees are beautiful. Our guide Albert and other porters/guides/trekkers were helpful/wonderful. Two of the people in my group got porters for $15 USD and it...More

We trekked for 5 hours (total) in muddy slippery conditions and loved it. The Gorillas were incredible and one walked right up to my husband. The guide, guards, trackers and the porter we hired were all so helpful especially at the tough points. Bwindi is...More

There may be some 'sort' of path in parts, but most of it has to be chopped as you go due to it being forest. I have been twice and both trips were different. First trip was a steep decline and we slipped and fell several... More
