These magnificent animals found exclusively in the jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable and Virunga national parks. It numbers less than 800-over half of them in Uganda and mostly in Bwindi Impenetrable.
It’s East Africa’s most precious forest with an impressive list of species. There is an abundant population of trees with more than 200 species. Besides, it has around 350 birds species, 310 butterflies, 51 types of reptiles, 88 moth species, and 120 mammals, including several primates. Among them chimpanzees, Black and White colobus, Blue monkeys, Grey-cheeked mangabey, L’hoest’s monkey, and the star attraction, the Mountain Gorilla.
