Bwindi National Park

The park covers an area of 331 sq km. A magnificent verdant swathe across the steep ridges of the Albertine Rift Valley, this ancient rainforest - one of the few in Africa to have flourished throughout the last Ice Age.

Location: The Park is located in south western Uganda on the edge of western rift valley bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) shared by Rukungiri, Kabale and Kisoro districts in Uganda.

Wildlife: It is home to roughly half of the world's mountain gorillas.
