Mountain Gorilla Trekking
One of the main reasons why people come to Bwindi is to go mountain gorilla trekking. These magnificent primates are incredibly rare and can only be found in a few locations in the world. Bwindi is one of those locations, and it’s home to over 400 mountain gorillas. AG Safaris offers a variety of trekking packages to suit different budgets and preferences.
During the trek, you’ll be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide who will lead you through the dense forest in search of the gorillas. The trek can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day, depending on where the gorillas are located. Once you find the gorillas, you’ll have an hour to observe them in their natural habitat. This is an unforgettable experience that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life.
Bwindi is also a fantastic destination for bird watchers. The park is home to over 350 species of birds, including 23 endemics. Some of the rare birds that can be found in Bwindi include the African green broadbill, the white-tailed blue flycatcher, and the short-tailed warbler.
AG Safaris offers bird watching tours that are led by experienced guides who are experts in identifying the different bird species in the park. The best time to go bird watching in Bwindi is from November to April, which is the breeding season for most of the bird species.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is not just about gorilla trekking and bird watching. There are also plenty of opportunities to explore the park on foot. AG Safaris offers guided nature walks that take you through some of the most scenic parts of the park.
