Bwindi Impenetrable National park in the south west of Uganda is a home to 400 out of 880 mountain gorillas that are currently thriving in the wild presenting a rich ground from gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda.
The park has four gorilla trekking regions namely the northern sector Buhoma, the eastern sector Ruhija, the southern sector Rushaga and the south western sector of Nkuringo which have got habituated gorilla families that have always been encountered by travellers on gorilla safaris in Uganda.
The Buhoma sector is re-known as the pioneer of the gorilla trekking activity in Bwindi Forest National Park and Uganda in general. The sector was the first to host the first group of gorilla trekkers when Mubare gorilla family was opened for tracking in the year 1993. The subsequent habituation of Rushegura and Habinyanja gorilla families made Buhoma a strong ground for Uganda gorilla safaris.
Connecting to Buhoma is noted to easier than the other trekking regions of the south. The drive takes you through the Ntungamo and Rukungiri before connecting to Butogota and eventually Buhoma. The doctor also has remarkable accommodation units that are hardly found in other sectors of the park. The accommodation range from the top notch Gorilla Forest Camp, the luxury Buhoma lodge; Mid-range Silverback lodge and the Budget Buhoma Community Rest Camp. The combination of these makes Buhoma an ideal gorilla tracking in Uganda.
