Uganda is a good year-round destination, but the rainy seasons (March to May and November to December) can make logistics a little tricky.

Bwindi Forest is a habitat to the Mountain Gorillas, mammals, primates, birds, trees. It’s a nature rain forest of montane low land forest which is located southwestern part of Uganda. But history behind Bwindi forest has it that Batwa were first people who lived in the forest and these are the ‘Batwa’ people also called the Batwa pygmies.

They lived, hunted and gathered in the forest, the forest provided whatever they needed to have in life, but later on where pushed out of the forest and they started living a miserable life. Owning the land to them was new since they lived in harmony in the forest but due to time everything changed because of conservation and this caused the preservation of the rain forest of Bwindi and its wildlife including birds, primates, the endangered mountain Gorillas.

And because of all what happened they became refugees, people who lacked but had, they lost their traditional ways and culture, ways of living in their normal and beloved forest. An experience of the Batwa trail gives you a life time experience to learn about their day to day life of the first people who lived in the forest spend time with people of small stature but with a big heart.
