Bwindi Impenetrable national park was established in 1992 and recognized as a World Heritage Site in 1994. Bwindi is an impenetrable rain forest; 327km2 of tangled vegetation draped over a deeply fissured landscape of steep, slippery valleys and high, draughty ridges. But if the terrain is far from easy to negotiate, it is well worth the effort. A trek through this, one of Africa’s most ancient rain forests, in search of the endangered Mountain Gorillas, ranks among the world’s premier wildlife encounters.
Bwindi impenetrable national park can always be cold in the morning and at night, the annual average temperature range is 70C-200C with the coldest period being June and July. Warm and heavy clothing is recommened not forgetting the rain weather gears because Bwindi receives up to 2390mm of rain/year. This is concentrated during two wet seasons, short rains in March-May and heavy rains in September-November. Instead of short tropical deluges, rain in Bwindi often falls as long hours of soft drizzle.
This is some Relevant information that would help those that wish to track Uganda’s mountain gorills
In Uganda a maximum of 8 tourists may visit a group of habituated mountain gorillas in a day. This is done to ensure minimal behavioral disturbance to the gorillas and the risk of their exposure to human-borne diseases.
A 7 meter (21 feet) distance should tried to be observed at all times from the gorillas. The further back you are, the more relaxed the group will be.
You must stay in tight group whey you are near the gorillas.
Keep your voices down at all times. However, it is okay to ask the guide questions.
