Uganda Gorilla Forest Camp 1

Bwindi is home to half the world's remaining population of the mountain gorilla, with just under 350 individuals counted in the last census. These critically endangered primates share the dense and beautifully green Bwindi Forest with a few other animals.

The bio-diversity of the park also makes it home for more than 350 bird species, 200 butterfly species, eleven kinds of primates including L'Hoest's monkeys, rare forest elephants, giant forest hogs and antelopes.



This is a photo of a Silver Back gorilla taken by a guest at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, with the beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in the background.

Facts: An adult male gorilla is called a Silver Back because at the age of 10-13 years, the new fur on his back will grow in silver instead of black. A Silver Back's hand can reach a span of three meters and they can weigh up to 180kg (400lbs.)
