Known as the Impenetrable Forest, this park covers 330 square kilometres of lush rainforests with a steep terrain and abundantly thick foliage. It is located in South Western Uganda on the edge of the western rift valley. It is home to many of the world’s known mountain gorillas, and viewing these stately creatures in this setting is both tough and spectacular – the conditions are rough and the distances are long, but the trip is well worth the effort.
Visitors can also see chimpanzee, monkeys, elephants, small antelope, as well over 360 bird species and over 200 butterfly species. This area contains 23 bird species that are restricted to the Albertine Rift, which cannot be seen in any other part of East Africa!
