They are all unique and support a staggeringly large proportion of Kenya’s Wildlife. The saline Bagoria is sometimes home to huge flocks of the lesser flamingo and contains more true geysers than any other area of Equal size in the world.

The forest is one of the most biologically diverse area on earth where half the world’s population of the highly endangered Mountain Gorillas live in its natural habitant jungle.

The forest has been recognized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization as a world heritage site for its biological significance

The forest has been described as “riven by disputes and crosshatched by historical, political, biological boarders” by the researcher Craig Stanford, co-director of the park’s jane Goodall Research center. In 1991, the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park was established
