Nature walks in Bwindi impenetrable national park

There are six main nature walks in Bwindi impenetrable national park for those who wish to specifically explore the great jungle.

These include waterfall and forest walks, primate encounters, mountain views and impressive bird life.

Nature walks in Bwindi impenetrable national park are one of the most memorable experiences one can enjoy after gorilla trekking.

Munyanga Waterfall Walk departs from Buhoma along the River Ivi-Nkuringo trail and culminates in the sensational sight of the falls plummeting 33 meters.

Rushura Hill Walk passes through one forest shared by two countries. On a clear day you can view Lakes Edward and George and the Rwenzori Mountains, as well as the conical peaks of the Virunga Volcanoes.

Muzubijiro Loop is a 6km walk where you will encounter primates and birds and enjoy a view of the Virungas.

The Ivi River Walk is 14km and takes around seven hours. The trail passes a place known as Mukempunu – meaning “a place of pigs” – where wild pigs can often be found.

The Buhoma-Nkuringo Trail takes three to four hours, and crosses right through the park, connecting the two villages and offering impressive views of the misty hillsides as you ascend the hills towards Nkuringo.  This trail can also be completed as part of the Ivi River Walk.

The Habinyanja (Railegh) Trail takes four to six hours. After crossing the Munyaga River there is a fairly steep ascent of the Habigorogoro and Riyovi Ridge overlooking Buhoma River. Found along this trail is the legendry “African Corner” named after a rock piece depicting a map of Africa. Following the steep ascent, keen hikers can enjoy a more relaxed gentle slope to the mighty Habinyanja swamp. Birders on this trail should watch out for the Pel’s Fishing Owl, African Black Duck and Black Bee Eaters, among others
