DIVERSITY OF WILDLIFE IN BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

Down in the remote south western corner on the border of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo lies the mountain Gorilla home, which is Uganda’s foremost tourist destination. This gorilla trekking safaris to Uganda. But while zoologists and botanists marvel at the lengthy species counts, most visitors are drawn by just one animal; the mountain gorilla. This endangered primate has a total population of less than 800 and lives only in the forests of the Virunga volcanoes and Bwindi, making Uganda’s mountain Gorilla country the prime location to search for these magnificent animals.

Known to many as a crested crane, the Uganda's grey crowned crane tops on the agenda for any one longing to have a birding safari in Uganda. Uganda is one of the few countries that is a home and paradise for these beautiful birds.

The Crane was chosen as Uganda’s national emblem nearly a century ago, and therefore continues to surface as one of the most cherished birds in the Pearl of Africa.
This Grey Crowned Crane is scientifically known as Balearica regulorum gibbericeps, lived in Uganda even before many people inhabited the land and forming tribes and different groups of people.
