From cultural immersion to unbounded wildlife exploration, a trip to Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is sure to delight. The main highlight of these expeditions is undoubtedly gorilla tracking - these full day hikes through the dense jungles requires energy and stamina but pays off when you see the majestic gorillas up close in their natural habitat. Afterwards, you can visit a local community and even discover the traditions of the Batwa Pygmies to learn about the native tribal inhabitants of the forest. From the comfort of your lodge, you will look out over the vast expanse of trees and truly understand why it is known as an "impenetrable forest." Start planning your trip to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda today!
