Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park located in the southwestern region of the country, on the edge of the rift valley commonly referred to as the impenetrable forest, Bwindi National Park is bordered by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on the western side; Kabale town to the southeast is the nearest main town to the Park, 29 kilometers away by road. It covers an area of 331 square kilometers and is located in the highest parts of Kigezi highlands with an altitude of 1,190 to 2,607 meters above sea level and 60% of this magical park has an elevation of over 2,000 meters above sea level. The highest elevation in the park is Rwamunyonyi hill at the eastern edge and the lowest part of the park is located at its most northern tip.

Bwindi Impenetrable forest became popular to the World because of Gorilla tracking; it is a habitat for more than half of the world's remaining Mountain Gorilla population in the world. These gentle primates are highly endangered species and the forest possesses more than 360 individuals of the plausible 800 plus Mountain Gorillas in the entire world. They are highly endangered because of poaching, habitat loss and diseases. This National park generates one of the highest revenues to Uganda Wildlife Authority amongst all the National Parks in Uganda.
