Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, which covers 331 km2, is located in the southwest corner of Uganda near the borders of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are 4 groups of gorillas that have been habituated to humans, three in the northwest section of the park and one in the southwest section. We trekked the group in the south called the Nkoringo group, the most isolated out of the four. The Uganda Wildlife Authority only authorizes 36 permits a day, eight per group and recommends booking permits at least three months in advance. We waited 10 days for our permits. Permit holders pay $360 to enjoy one hour maximum with the gorillas.
