Nature walk in Bwindi is a very exciting activity to do apart from gorilla trekking. The park has six main hiking trails in Buhoma region from where you can experience the beautiful sights of the park including types of trees, bird species, flowers and butterflies. The hike involves walking or footing through the impenetrable forest and you may see mountain gorillas, baboons, red tailed monkey, duikers and L’Hoest’s monkey.
Nature walks need some good energy and visitors are encouraged to carry enough bottled drinking water, snacks and packed food.
