Imagine a chance to trekk mountain gorillas, and go bird watching on the same day!
Yes, you just read that right, and we don’t just have an option for you, but the option.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is the premier destination that combines the best of bird watching and mountain gorilla tracking.
With half of the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population observed in that south western part of Uganda, Bwindi impenetrable forest, as its name hints, has for long satisfied the birdwatchers’ craving and the mammal trekkers’ desire.
If you had a choice to wade off jet lag from an international trip on a given African Safari, the eco-rich forest would be your choice destination.
Uganda already boasts of a variety of endemic bird populations, in fact, many have compared the East African nation’s birding diversity to the United States. Evidence that Uganda’s birds are up the ranking by any global birdwatching standards.
The UNESCO designated site in South Western Uganda is the kind of destination that fits the bill, yet getting there is not mysterious too.
Many have also chosen to experience Bwindi through cycling tours options in Buhoma for example. One thing is clear though, if you are going to look for a premium combined experience of birdwatching and gorilla trekking, Bwindi is the place to go. Consider for example the bird types there as highlighted by Bradt guides.
And of course, contacting us at Pearl Gorilla is always a good way to start planning your trip.
