A trip to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a dream for every person who loves adventure, it's a true African Jungle. It is so called because the dense undergrowth, vines and other vegetation make it almost 'impenetrable'.
It's mysterious and awesome. The lowland rain-forest 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 through, the elegant heliconia, or lobster claw, spreads its colorful petals.
Amongst the dense vegetation the Colobus Monkeys jump 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.
Many species of birds can be seen, including various turacos and a great many birds of prey.
The forest is sanctuary for almost half the world's population of mountain gorillas(about 330 of 600), which is the rarest race of gorilla.
Established as a safe habitat for several families of mountain gorillas it is now the location of an important scientific conservation programme.
Gorilla tracking visits are limited to small groups.
As you walk among the shadows of the leafy canopy, this rain-forest reveals the smells and sounds of Africa, just as it has been for centuries.
