Bwindi is home to an astounding diversity of flora and fauna

One of 20 national parks in Uganda, this protected area is part of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and is situated along the border of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and next to Rwanda’s Virunga National Park. Bwindi is home to an astounding diversity of flora and fauna, with some of the richest populations of trees, small mammals, birds, reptiles, butterflies and moths in East Africa, and some 400 critically endangered mountain gorillas. Daily treks to see one of the 14 habituated gorilla families generate most of the revenue for the Uganda Wildlife Authority which is tasked with their conservation, while the number of visitors is tightly controlled to prevent risks to the gorillas and degradation of the habitat.

Stay at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge

Overlooking the primeval Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is the finest luxury lodge in the area. Recently refurbished, with dramatic intense views of the forest canopy across a serene stream, it is one of Africa’s unique properties. You might even spot one of the gorillas who frequently come to relax in the verdant bush around the lodge!

The eight newly renovated luxury bandas, each having their own view of the forest, have been been totally restyled with warm luxurious interiors and inviting four poster beds and locally-inspired furniture​. The main living area has a central fireplace which acts as a focal point for guests to relax and discuss their gorilla tracking experience. A large terrace overlooking the forest is a great place to spot the monkeys and birds hidden in the foliage.

Our guide in Uganda was Moses and he was fantastic, making sure that we knew what to expect, arranging additional gorilla tracking permits and trips and his knowledge of the wildlife and birds was great, he also had a great sense of humour."
