Many people travel to Uganda to see the Mountain Gorillas that Uganda is famed for. Uganda is the home to half of world's remaining population of mountain gorillas. Popularly known as the 'Pearl of Africa', Uganda's most famous attraction is the Bwindi 'Impenetrable' Forest home to the elusive and treasured mountain Gorilla. Half the total population of the world's gorillas live in the Virunga Mountains in Uganda where the Zaire, Rwanda and Burundi borders meet. The other half is found in the Bwindi Forest in Uganda. Amongst other Uganda attractions are the Murchison's Falls, Queen Elizabeth and the world's largest freshwater lake - Lake Victoria. The diverse cultures as well as the hospitable people of Uganda are a major attraction to many. From the moment you land at Entebbe’s modern and efficient international airport, with its breathtaking equatorial location on the forested shore of island-strewn Lake Victoria, it is clear that Uganda is no ordinary safari destination. There is more to see than one can imagine but the most popular locations include:

Bwindi Gorilla Forest – Location and Habitat
Bwindi’s Impenetrable Gorilla Forest is true African Jungle. It is so called because of the dense undergrowth, vines and other vegetation make it almost ‘impenetrable’. Bwindi’s Impenetrable Gorilla Forest is mysterious and awesome. The lowland rainforest and montane forest vegetation constantly struggles to reach heights that will allow it to receive more light.

Huge trees are festooned with creepers and parasitic plants such as mistletoe and orchids. Giant thickets of bamboo thrive in the humid atmosphere and, where sunlight breaks though, the elegant heliconia, or lobster claw, spreads its colourful petals. Amongst the dense vegetation the Colobus Monkey jumps from branch to branch, chattering its warning to its fellows hidden by the foliage. Chimpanzees, in families of 20 or 30, make the rounds, searching for fruit and edible plants.

The Park is located in south western Uganda, covering parts of Rukungiri, Kisoro, and Kabale Districts It was gazetted in 1991 with an area of 331 km2. It is situated in a hilly country-side that, together with some remnant lowland forest outside the boundary, constitute an important water catchment area for many rivers, supplying the agricultural land of the surrounding region. As you walk among the shadows of the leafy canopy, this rainforest reveals the smells and sounds of Africa, just as it has been for centuries. Without doubt, your first impression of the dense jungle will be its almost audible silence. Jungle creatures are very, very shy, but, as you pick your way along the trail, through the dense undergrowth, you’ll realise that the jungle is alive.
