The southwestern region of Uganda is where the impenetrable forest of Bwindi national park is located, which takes about 9-10 hours’ drive from the capital city, Kampala, or Entebbe international airport. This amazing forest is one of the gorillas’ natural habitats in the wild, with over 550 mountain gorillas, and there are almost half of the few remaining endangered mountain gorillas in this park. Therefore, if you’re looking for the best place or destination in the wild to track these unique primates, Bwindi impenetrable forest national park is your answer.

Visiting the mountain gorillas of Bwindi Forest is the best budget tour that will give you a chance to spend less money while enjoying and learning more about the unique primate species on earth.
