Therefore to combine wildlife, adventure, and culture, weather together at one destination while traveling can be a life changing safari. Let’s list out the 3 outstanding places that will inspire and change your way of life.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park– the best place to see mountain gorillas in the world.
Bwindi is a UNESCO World heritage site is home to 400 critically endangered mountain gorillas. With less than 900 gorillas in the wild, Bwindi represents more than half of their population and the human threats like habitat destruction due to encroachment and farming, poaching, climate change means that a visit to Bwindi rain forest could be the time for responsible travelers to bring about positive change towards gorilla conservation and community development.
To see gorillas, there are 8 gorilla tracking rules set to guide tourists hence with gorilla tracking an eco-friendly and sustainable safari is guaranteed for visitors. Bwindi rain forest is a restricted area yet local people need to depend on natural resources like water, medicinal herbs, fruits, timber. That means that more and more sustainable projects like environment initiatives, food security, and job creating enterprises are major areas that need emphasis to reduce poverty and over reliance on natural resources if we’re to conserve gorillas for the future generations.
A village walk is one way that allows visitors to learn and experience the local culture of Batwa ancient forest people and Bakiga including their food, traditional dance, arts and crafts, history and conservation progress. Therefore, ideas and investment opportunities are open to create more and more projects in addition to what Uganda wildlife authority has done in partnership with local people.
Today, the chance to see mountain gorillas in their natural habitat is very rare but Bwindi rainforest presents a big deal with 15 habituated gorilla families including 1 found in Mgahinga gorilla national park. The best way to see gorillas is to plan a gorilla trekking safari and acquire a gorilla permit which gives you permission to visit one of the habituated gorilla families for 1 hour or up to 4 hours during gorilla habituation experience.
