Bwindi impenetrable forest is one of the few large expanses of forests in East Africa on 327 square km2 covered in dense vegetation of shrubs, trees, vines, all these draped over the steep, haughty ridges and slippery valleys of Bwindi Forest terrain.

The Bwindi Impenetrable forest is a habitant to over 120 mammals like monkeys, wild pigs, forest elephants, baboons among others, and 345 different birds, insects of all kinds inclusive of over 200 species of butterflies and about 160 tree species that help in the continuous rain formation.
