Arguably one of the oldest “last Eden” on the African continent, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda is a tantalising glimpse of how the world once was. It contains some of the most pristine virgin forest remaining on the African continent and is home to more than half of the last remaining mountain gorillas, other primates, forest elephants, and hundreds of other species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. Residing in this stunning “impenetrable” rainforest, are over 450 robust gentle gorilla giants. Feeding on nutritious roots, leaves and fruits from the park’s tree and fern species, the gorillas form a sublime backdrop amidst lush emerald green foliage and a kaleidoscopic fluttering of birds and butterflies. Dating back 25,000 years, Bwindi forest is one of Africa’s most ancient rainforest, trekking through this lush abundant thicket is a captivating experience; made all the more spectacular when you silently come upon these majestic beauties. This is a spectacularly humbling experience that you will never forget.
