Location

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in the heart of the rainforest in the southwest corner of Uganda. It is a home to seven different species of primates including the elusive, majestic mountain gorilla. The name Bwindi derives from the local phrase “Mubwindi bwa Nyinamukari” which referred to the Mubwindi swamp in the south-east of the park rather than the forest itself.

The story behind this name goes back to about many years ago when it is said that a family migrating northwards from Kisoro area found themselves standing at the southern end of a seemingly impenetrable swamp. The parents asked the swamp spirits for guidance and were told that only if they sacrificed their most beautiful daughters Nyinamukari, would the rest of the family cross without mishap.

After two days of deliberation, the family decided that they could not turn back south and so they threw the girl into the water to drown and went on their way safely to the other side. When news of the sacrifice spread, people began to avoid the swamp calling it Mubwindi bwa Nyinamukali (a dark place of Nyinamukali). The forest was proclaimed as the Impenetrable Forest Reserve in 1932, its official name until 1991 when it was gazetted as a national park and named Bwindi. It is regarded to be one of the most diverse forests in Africa.

It is a true rainforest spread over a series of steep ridges and valleys that form the eastern edge of the Albertine Rift valley. There are three habituated gorilla groups which are Mubale, Rushegula, and Habinyanja. Buhoma has five different day trails ranging from 30 minutes to 8 hours in order to see several different monkey species. There are also various bird species for about 190 and bird watchers are urged to stick to the main road that runs into the forest from the entrance gate.
