Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in South-Western Uganda has won the prestigious Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, which honours businesses that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travellers.
With the rating of 5, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park has earned a place among the very best. The award is given to only the most exceptional performers in the TripAdvisor global business community. It is a significant achievement deserving of recognition from both travellers and staff.
TripAdvisor is the world's largest travel site that recognises the power of travellers' feedback.'We are proud to recognise the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for earning exceptional traveller rating over the past year,' confirmed Christine Petersen, the President Trip Advisor for Business. The CAM Bwindi Impenetrable Conservation Area Pontious Ezuma says that this certificate is a testimony to the reliably high standards in the park.
Volcanoes has operated its Bwindi Lodge next to the National Park with great success for over ten years and have enjoyed bringing guests to this remarkable natural landscape, not least because of the magical mountain gorillas that call the forest home. The lodge has been built close enough to the forest to feel a part of it and the gorillas don't see a difference, either, having been known to come for a visit occasionally, much to the delight of our staff and guests.

Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
