2 Days Uganda Fly in Gorilla Safari (Luxury Gorilla Safari)

OVERVIEW

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the destination for the two-day fly-in safari. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the critically endangered mountain gorillas. It is home to half of the world’s Mountain Gorilla population. It is situated in South Western Uganda on the side of the western rift valley, occupying 331 square kilometers and occupied by Kabale, Kisoro, and Kanungu districts.

The park has an elevation range of 2607m (Rwamunyonyi peak) to 1160m (Ishasha gorge). The threatened Mountain Gorillas can be seen in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which is the best spot in the world to track them.

Aside from gorillas, the park is home to 11 different primate types. Among them are black-and-white colobus and L’Hoest’s apes, baboons, and chimps. Forest Elephants and a variety of antelopes are also inhabitants. 42 of the 200 butterfly species found in Bwindi are native to the Albertine Area. There are 23 Albertine Rift endemics among the 350 bird species.
